Edmund Capon, who has died at the age of 78, served for 33 years as director of the Art Gallery of New South Wales (AGNSW), an institution with which his name remains indelibly linked.
Skye Jamieson and Kendall Manz describe the link between their art practices as a feeling of “abundance within sparseness.”
After traversing England, Scotland, Germany, Canada, Shanghai, the Philippines and an array of Australian towns, modernist painter Ian Fairweather eventually settled on Queensland’s Bribie Island in 1953.
Sydney Ball was a guiding hand and mentor for the gallery and its younger artists, says Strumpf. “We loved him; he was part of our family. He was always there for counsel, and he forged some beautiful friendships with some of our artists.”
