The artist Angharad Dean came to Canberra in 1990 for 2 years and is still here: she adopted Canberra as her country and now, in celebration of Canberra’s centenary is exhibiting paintings that speak of her country, our country. The theme of the exhibition, and it’s title, is based loosely on the iconic poem My Country, by Dorothea McKellar. The poem, and the paintings that Angharad will exhibit show the beauty of this wide brown land, with Canberra as the heart of the nation featured in the works – from sweeping plains to ragged mountain ranges Canberra epitomises the wide brown land of the poem. Emerging from the long drought with pitiless blue sky, Canberra has seen flood and fire and famine and now 100 years on join the artist at the M16 Gallery on Australia Day to celebrate 100 years of this country, my country, our country through images of country as iconic as the poem.
