50 Years, 50 Artists

‘50 Years, 50 Artists’ is a major exhibition to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Latrobe Regional Gallery. The show will feature works from our collection by artists who have made a significant contribution to the development of art in Gippsland. The exhibition will also include artworks borrowed from artists who are living or working in Gippsland. The final group of artists will be four artists commissioned to create new work for inclusion in the exhibition and with an option to become a part of the collection. The exhibition is forward-looking with an eye to the future and with an emphasis on contemporary art.
