In the 1970s, painter Guy Warren and sculptor Bert Flugelman bought adjoining lots at Jamberoo, with the landscape providing a rich and constant source of inspiration for both artists. After Bert's death, Guy organised a residency for a group of artists on his former property, so they too could share the creative possibilities of the rainforest, the mists and the magic of that particular piece of lush country which clings to edge of the escarpment rising at the Western end of the Jamberoo Valley.
This exhibition presents the results of these artists' vision and reaction to the rainforest escarpment.
Guy Warren with: Suzanne Archer, Deborah Beck, Gillian Bennett, Ann Cape, Tom Carment, Kevin Connor, Lucy Culliton, Elisabeth Cummings, Jim Croke, David Fairbairn, Chris Gentle, Margaret Goodall, Chick Gordon, Colin Husband, Nola Jones, Michael Kempson, Peter Kingston, Garry Shead, Alun Leach-Jones, Chrissie Lloyd, Steve Lopes, Euan Macleod, Idris Murphy, Peter O’Doherty, Bernard Ollis, Daniel Pata, Amanda Penrose Hart, Luke Sciberras, Wendy Sharpe and Ann Thomson.
