Burragorang The Lost Valley 2018

Exhibitions

Burragorang the Lost Valley is a past sell out exhibition that was held at Lost Bear Gallery – Lurline St. Katoomba. It opened on Saturday March 24th 2018 and ran until April 29th 2018. The exhibition coincided with the official book launch of ‘Paintings from Burragorang the Lost Valley’ – a book filled with rare paintings of mine both recent and from my former visits, along with other works. Bob Brown has written the foreword with an interesting introduction by Jim Smith.

The Burragorang Valley

The Burragorang Valley put is the picturesque valley that was flooded in the 1950s to make way for a permanent  water supply for the growing city of Sydney.

What was once a thriving valley of guest houses, farms and other small industries no longer exists. Residents were forced to leave their precious valley, livelihoods were lost, people dispossessed with only a small  compensation. 

11 CLEARING STORM OVER UPPER BURRAGORANG Enhanced

The homes and buildings were demolished the land stripped of vegetation. That Valley  is now called Lake Burragorang. I have been fortunate enough to have had a very long history with what is left of  this beautiful area  – a history I thought I had left behind 30 years ago. The story of my  involvement and how recent trips with Water NSW came about, is told in this book. Predominantly, though, it is a book of my art featuring exhibition images of my paintings  and some  from earlier times, along with other works of mine towards the back. 

It has been a journey I never thought I would ever make again

and yet, here it is, the result of 4 years of planning and and dedicated painting. This will be my final exhibition of the Burragorang Valley.
