In 1993 Australian artist Arthur Boyd and his wife Yvonne gifted their property on the Shoalhaven River in New South Wales to the Australian people, giving artists the opportunity to draw inspiration from its distinctive and beautiful landscape.
Its 1100 hectares now provide inspiration for artists, students and the public with more than 20,000 people visiting the property in 2016-17.
This year, in celebration of its quarter century milestone, Bundanon Trust will host a series of events highlighting the importance of the heritage site and the value of Australia’s landscape.
These include a collaboration with Firesticks which explores Aboriginal burning practises, and several public performances from Australian artists including Deborah Conway, Claire Edwards and Saskwatch.
Bundanon will also mark the milestone through a national touring exhibition which will showcase the major works of the Trust’s original benefactor, Arthur Boyd.
The Australian Government has supported Bundanon Trust since its inception and is proud to provide ongoing funding to foster artists and promote research and education.
