Portrait artist Rose Wilson returns to her home town to exhibit her latest series of works, The Disappearing Farmer. This is your opportunity to meet Rose and preview the works for sale.
In this series, Wilson pays homage to the local farming families, the operators of traditional ‘small family farms’ that are experiencing increasing pressure to survive. Her style and technique captures the rugged lifestyle of these farmers, and all in the family that contribute to the farm’s operation.
Wilson, who was born and raised in Albury, is renowned for her portraits, with regular appearances in the Archibald and Black Swan portrait prizes. After years of travelling and living in remote Australia, Wilson has resettled in the Victorian Highlands near Trentham.
