Reverie: Contemplative Paintings from the Collection

Introduction by Sian van Dyk, curator:

“This selection of works from the Dowse Collection gathers together artists who meditate on the world around them through their painting.  However, rather than making perfect copies of what they see, each artist accentuates a certain quality or feeling they associate with their subject…In showing their own personal vision through their contemplative painting, these artists reveal the beauty and emotion that can be drawn out of day to day living.”
