Exhibition: "Aspects of Japan"

In this exhibition, we will be displaying the works of a Melbourne-based artist, Angela Abbott. On two of her five journeys to Japan, Angela worked on small, incidental studies in gouache and ink. She delighted in observing many facets of natural beauty and human interaction through livelihood, labour, and relaxation.

This exhibition is a collection of some of her works which were inspired by Japan. Works range from a set of gouache impressions in Lake Kawaguchi, to an oil painting which depicts the bond between Japan and Australia, with parallels to the unique sakura and iconic eucalyptus.

When: Monday 3 June – Wednesday 31 July 2019 (9:00am - 1:00pm, 2:00pm - 5:00pm)
Where: Entrance hall, Consulate-General of Japan in Melbourne (Level 25, 570 Bourke St)
Cost: Free
