Modern Masterpieces at Newcastle Art Gallery

I’m a fan of art that has an edge, some bite, maybe some blinding colour, or just blows my mind when looking at it for the first time. Therefore, my trip to check out Newcastle Art Gallery’s Modern Masterpieces exhibition was with some trepidation – would I like the ‘old’ stuff? Some hour and a half later, I came away deeply impressed by the range and quality of work. In particular, the works of William Dobell, a local to the area, were visually stunning. Accordingly, the portrait of Margaret Olley by Dobell (Archibald Prize winner in 1948) is probably the most important piece; vibrant, stunning and magnificent. The exhibition runs until March 4 – so be quick!
