Keepers of The Flame: The Legacy of Murch & Miksevicius

Every day until Sun 09 Jun 2019
10am-5pm Tuesday-Sunday
Free entry
Exhibition will be opened by eminent art critic Christopher Allen on Saturday 4 May, 2 - 4pm.

Manly Art Gallery & Museum is to host a joint exhibition featuring the works of two of the most important figures in Australian art over the last 100 years.

Arthur Murch (1902-1989) is among the most recognised Australian painters of the 20th Century and Jurgis Miksevicius (1923-2014) is an unsung hero of art who intentionally withdrew from the art world.

‘Keepers of The Flame: The Legacy of Murch & Miksevicius’ explores their art through the eyes of their daughters Michelle Murch and Carolyn Leigh, who manage their fathers’ archives and artworks.

Special Programs:

Living Art Legacies panel discussion

Sunday 19 May, 2 – 3.30pm

Michelle and Carolyn will be joined by other ‘Keepers of the Flame’, Cassi Plate (Carl Plate) and Meg Stewart (Margaret Coen), in conversation with Katrina Strickland, author of Affairs of the Art and editor of Good Weekend, about living with artists’ legacies.

Exhibition Talk

Sunday 2 June, 3 - 4pm

Michelle Murch and Carolyn Leigh share the stories of Arthur Murch and Jurgis Miksevicius as told through the artworks in the exhibition and archives.
