// MERVYN BISHOP
Mervyn Bishop, an exhibition celebrating the prolific and longstanding career of a photographer whose records of culture, politics and people have contributed greatly to an understanding of Australia’s history. Alongside the works from the Gallery’s collection, material from the artist’s personal photographic archive is on display via a curated slideshow.
Selected from an archive of over 8000 images, the majority of which have never before been seen in public, the slideshow features images taken over the past 60 years affording a fascinating insight into Bishop’s life and work through photographs.
Photographs by Bishop of defining moments in Australia’s political and social history, personal images of family and friends, and intimate portraits of members of the Aboriginal community all feature in Mervyn Bishop.

// WAS WORKS
The Willyama Art Society is delighted to present their 57th exhibition at the Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery, and immensely proud to appear in this remarkable local institution.
The Society was formed in 1961 to help and encourage local hobbyists and professional artists to share their passions and expertise across diverse mediums. Members work, or have worked, in many different areas of the community, pursuing a great variety of themes and interests, which has resulted in an impressive array of styles, talents and art forms.
While there is no specific theme, WAS Works highlights a full palette of materials from oils and watercolours to acrylics, inks and pastels, all of which inspired the members to produce portraits, landscapes, abstract or still life works.
The aim of the society is to surprise and beguile those wishing to share their love of the arts.

Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery is located at 404 - 408 Argent Street, Broken Hill. Broken Hill is the largest regional outback centre in Western New South Wales, positioned close to the South Australian border and midway between the Queensland and Victorian borders. Broken Hill is a culturally rich and diverse environment. Famous for its mining industries, silver and mineral deposits, and unionism, the city today is also identified by the strength of its arts community, and number of artists and galleries in the region. The town is also the home of The Brushmen of the Bush, a celebrated group of Australian artists including Pro Hart, Jack Absalom, Hugh Schulz, Eric Minchin and John Pickup, who took paintings of outback Australia to the world.
