Impressions of Spring

9 September – 25 October 2020

Spring has always been seen as the promise of new life and regeneration after the dormancy of Winter.  This year it seems more timely than ever to celebrate the start of Spring because of the devastating Black Summer bushfires and the economic environment associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. This selection of works by award-winning artists from the Downton Collection invites you to reflect on the change Spring brings, and the hope it offers, as 2020 draws to an end.
