Arthur Streeton works from the Queensland Art Gallery on view at Noosa Regional Gallery
October 21- November 27, 2005
Exhibition Opens Friday October 21, 6pm
Official speaker : Tamsin Cull, Queensland Art Gallery

A collection of works by the one of Australia's greatest landscape painters, Sir Arthur Streeton, will open at Noosa Regional Gallery, on October 22, 2005.

Queensland Art Gallery Director Doug Hall said 'Streeton: Works from the Queensland Art Gallery Collection' would open in Noosa and remain on display there until November 27, 2005.  'Following Noosa, the exhibition will tour to four other Queensland venues — Hervey Bay, Miles, Toowoomba and Stanthorpe', he said.
Mr Hall said 'Streeton' continued the Gallery's commitment to touring major works from the Collection to regional Queensland audiences.

The exhibition highlights the work of one of Australia's greatest landscape artists.  
Streeton was a leading member of the Heidelberg School — an Australian art movement of the 1890's which took its name from the Heidelberg area in Victoria where artists such as Streeton, Charles Conder, Tom Roberts and Frederick McCubbin painted en plein-air.

Streeton's paintings mythologise and reflect a new vision of the Australian landscape at the turn of the twentieth century.

The exhibition includes nine paintings by Streeton, and two portraits of the artist — a painting by W.B. McInnes, and a plaster bust by Harold Parker.
The road up the hill c.1889, a 9 x 5 painting on a cardboard panel, captures nature on a small, portable support, a common practice of the Heidelberg School.

The exhibition also includes Sketch for 'Still glides the stream and shall forever glide' 1895, one of Streeton's best loved paintings and Sydney Harbour 1921, the artist's interpretation of Sydney's industrialisation against a skyline of rising smokestacks and cranes.

The exhibition's tour is also supported by interpretive resources such as an informative brochure, and an education kit for primary and secondary school audiences.
