The third exhibition in a special series of collaborations between three Sydney public galleries, Manly Art Gallery & Museum, Mosman Art Gallery and the National Trust’s S. H. Ervin Gallery.

Like its preceding exhibitions, it showcases artworks responding to the theme of Sydney as a place of creative endeavours, with a strong focus on the work of major Australian women artists, all connected by their concern for landscape and the environment.

Destination Sydney: The natural world presents the work of a select group of key Australian artists whose art practice has become synonymous with the natural world: Joan Ross, Fiona Lowry, Merran Esson (Manly Art Gallery & Museum), Janet Laurence, Caroline Rothwell, Robyn Stacey (Mosman Art Gallery), and Bronwyn Oliver, Juz Kitson and Jennifer Keeler-Milne (S.H. Ervin Gallery).

The accompanying exhibition catalogue is generously sponsored by the Gordon Darling Foundation.
