Joyful and Triumphant

24 June - 23 July 2016

Celebrating Christmas in July.


As you walk through East Gippsland Art Gallery, you will see that the contributors have spent many hours patiently and creatively preparing and completing their items carefully meeting 'the brief'. All the decorations are inspired by the Johnston Collection and must relate in some way to the history and life of William Johnston or an item or element in the Collection; the Christmas story and its celebration contained within the domestic setting of Fairhall. The works are installed in rooms replicating their location in Fairhall and this assists with the story-telling about the inspirations and source of ideas by artists and makers. This group of contributors chose Mona, Mr Johnston's cat as the single identity symbol for this exhibition. You will find Mona represented in at least one work in each room.
