A love of land and life

Over the past 50 years well known Castlemaine artist Brian Nunan has travelled the Australian outback on and off for months at a time.
The humour and the pathos, the bland and the grand that he sees along the way – all are rich material beneath the brush of this local artist whose love of his country and its people resonates through in his work.
This evening Nunan launches his new retrospective exhibition at his imposing Campbell Street gallery.
“All up there’s probably a couple of 100 works,” says the artist who together with his wife Pat bought the former St Gabriel’s Convent School in Castlemaine converting a significant portion of it into a studio and gallery that would be the envy of many a practising artist.
