National Art – Part One is an exhibition and celebration of artworks by fifty practising Australian artists who have studied at the National Art School and have generously donated work from their personal collections to the School. This is one of the most significant moments in the history of the National Art School’s Collection, affirming our optimism for the bright future of the School.
National Art – Part One presents an expansive approach to art today, encompassing the broad stylistic diversity that the National Art School promotes. The earliest work is from 1947 and the most recent is from 2018, spanning seven decades, across many generations, art movements and media.
