This Summer a group of artists from the New England region and Mosman area will sit aside masters of Australian Impressionism in a response exhibition that celebrates the rich history of the late 19th century artists camps of Sydney Harbour’s northern foreshore and the famous Curlew Camp site.

'Bush to Bay - Hinton and the Artists' Camps' offers visitors the opportunity to experience acclaimed paintings from some of Australia’s foremost and much-loved artists, including Tom Roberts and Arthur Streeton, as well as exploring new work from eight contemporary landscape artists—all while appreciating the legacy of one of our earliest and most formative art collectors.

The exhibition is a collaboration between Sydney’s Mosman Art Gallery and New England Art Museum (NERAM) in Armidale and features key works from the Howard Hinton Collection. Tom Roberts’ seminal painting, Mosman’s Bay, 1894, one of the icons of Australian landscape art (and the keystone to NERAM’s collection), will temporarily return to its original home.

It was at Sirius Cove, Mosman that a young Howard Hinton met and became firm friends with many of the Impressionist artists. Hinton, who was living in a small flat in Cremorne at the time, began collecting their work and supporting their endeavours. Hinton developed a collection of hundreds of works for the purpose of encouraging artists, educating students and for the benefit and enjoyment of the public, and he gave it all away. In doing so Howard Hinton established one of the most significant collections of artworks by Australian Impressionist painters, now held in the collection of the New England Regional Art Museum.

Joining the masters on show are a select group of eight contemporary artists from the New England and Mosman regions, commissioned to create new works responding to this rich tradition. They include: Gabrielle Collins, Viola Dominello, Ashley Frost, Michelle Hungerford, Angus Nivison, Elouise Roberts, Hadyn Wilson and Ana Young.

These respected artists each spent time in Mosman in 2016-17, researching and creating new works at special and historic sites around Sydney Harbour including Mosman's Bay, Musgrave Street Wharf, the Curlew Camp site, Little Bay Sirius Cove, Whiting Beach, and Sirius Cove Park. Many followed in the path set by the Australian Impressionists of painting and drawing en plein air (in the open, out of the studio).

The resulting exhibition, 'Bush to Bay - Hinton and the Artist Camps', celebrates Mosman’s unique role in Australian art history and offers insight to the world of the Australian Impressionist Movement. We can explore their legacy and traditions with contemporary artists today as the original camp site terrain remains largely untouched. 120 years on we recognise the importance of this special place, its dedicated social and cultural history and interpreted local now iconic scenes.

The exhibition also provides the opportunity to revisit the bequest of important art collectors such as Howard Hinton. Indeed if not for his vision and generosity we can only wonder what may have been lost to Australia, its people and culture.
