Artworks in the exhibition have been selected by Wendy Whiteley and the Brett Whiteley Studio, with a curatorial focus on the enduring connection Whiteley had with the region west of the Great Dividing Range.

Whiteley spent his formative years in Sydney and as a boarder at The Scots School, Bathurst. His artistic talent was noticed and nurtured by his teachers and he would spend weekends drawing, immersed in the countryside and the distinct seasons.

Whiteley returned to the central west of NSW years later after travelling extensively in Europe, America and Asia, and continued to draw inspiration from the region for the remainder of his life. He frequently travelled to Marulan, Lucknow, Oberon, Carcoar and Bathurst sketching and painting intimate landscapes.

The exhibition features drawings, paintings and sculptures from the Brett Whiteley Studio and the Art Gallery of New South Wales collections.
