Dates of Exhibition: 
Mon, 05/07/2018 - Thu, 05/24/2018

Exhibition Description

Head On has a broad approach to ‘landscape’ that encompasses ‘large vista’ images of the natural environment- land or sea, urban or industrial settings. It may include people, but they are ‘incidental’ rather than the main subject matter.

The works are anonymous through the judging process and as a result, the merit of the work is the focus, bringing together both newly unearthed and established Australian and international talent.

The judging panel changes each year resulting in exhibitions that are unpredictable and diverse from year to year.
