• Kathrin Longhurst, The Artist as a Young Girl, 2020, oil on canvas, 120 x 120cm (Image detail)




Friday, 7 August 2020 - 10:00am to Sunday, 29 November 2020 - 3:00pm

In celebration of Manly Art Gallery & Museum’s 90th anniversary, two special exhibitions focussed on 'portraiture' as a powerful expression of contemporary artists connected with Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

A series of twenty commissioned portraits by celebrated Australian photographer Greg Weight takes us into the private worlds of key creative contemporary practitioners living and working on the Northern Beaches.

And fifteen self-portrait paintings and drawings by acclaimed Sydney artists who have turned the mirror on themselves, in their distinctive styles, to mark their self-image at this unique point in time.
