Sights Unseen: Recent Acquisitions from the Moreland Art Collection

We are delighted that our artists’ book, Salvaged Relatives, edition III will be on display.

In recent years the Moreland Art Collection has experienced significant gains through purchases, commissions and a marked increase in the receipt of philanthropic donations.

Sights Unseen: Recent Acquisitions from the Moreland Art Collection draws together artworks held by the municipality not previously exhibited at the Counihan Gallery In Brunswick.

Comprising photography, painting, drawing, prints, collage, artists books and mixed media the artworks reflect a diverse range of contemporary practice as well as some fascinating historical offerings — a trove of cultural heritage for the City of Moreland.

The gentlest of owls. the Laughing owl (Sceloglaux albifacies). Last recorded sighting July, 1914. "It could always be brought from its lurking place in the rocks, after dusk, by the strains of an accordion....the bird would silently flit over the face of the performer and finally take up its station in the vicinity, and remain within easy hearing till [the music] had ceased." —Sir Walter Buller, New Zealand ornithologist
