A.W. Harding - An Exhibition of a Lifetime

Thursday 31 May - Tuesday 12 June 2018

Opening: Friday 1 June at 6pm

Galleries: Frater, Hammond and McCubbin




Bill Harding (1930 -2012) was a past President of the Victorian Artists' Society, stalwart member and prolific exhibitor at this distinguished institution.

He was an educator and mentor to many throughout his artistic career. His work is held in public and private collections throughout Australia.

As a painter his commitment to the principle of 'art for art's sake' had never wavered in spite of the pressures exerted to adopt an attitude and style acceptable to popular taste. His mastery of colour harmonies, composition and atmosphere captured while painting from life, evolved through his dedication and commitment to his craft.

This exhibition marks an opportunity for the family to uphold his tradition by holding a major show and sale of a legacy of work at the Victorian Artists' Society Galleries.
