The artist’s garden, house and memories – Australian Galleries 60th Anniversary Exhibition
- William Robinson

“I am eighty and for a while now the subject matter of my painting has shifted from the landscape to my house and garden. My mind is never far from the farms and animals and they too are very close to where I live. I did a great deal of teaching in Colleges and now if I am asked what advice I would give to young artists, I would say make a life, create your art out of this life. I am indeed fortunate that I made this life with my wife and family and they provide the life-spring for my art.”

– William Robinson, April 2016

Australian Galleries is very privileged that William Robinson agreed to exhibit his recent works marking this significant milestone for the Purves family in Australian Galleries’ 60th Anniversary Exhibition. It is also to our great pleasure that Emeritus Professor Sasha Grishin AM will open the Melbourne exhibition and speak of the gallery.
