The Disappearing Farmer: Rose Wilson

When: Thursday 6 April - Sunday 28 May

Where: Maurice Chick Family & MacLeod-Miller Adamshurst Gallery, MAMA.

Price: FREE

This new series from portrait artist Rose Wilson pays homage to the working farmers of the Victorian Highlands around her Trentham home.

Wilson depicts a generation of agricultural families that are disappearing as small farms are swallowed up by larger farms, the urban fringe creeps outwards, and rural young people migrate to regional and metropolitan areas.

In this series of oil paintings, Wilson captures the faces of farming couples, working farm dogs, and a way of life that is becoming increasingly rare. All works are for sale.
