Art Collector Thomas Murrell with some of his works from The Fairview Art Collection, a nationally significant collection of women artists from South Australia and Western Australia, Thomas Murrell.

Author and Art Talk With Thomas Murrell

A whole generation of talented women artists have been forgotten and overlooked. Too late for the art boom of the 1890s and too early for the #knowmyname movement, they remain hidden and unknown.

Social norms and a male dominated industry have meant they have gone missing from our private art collections, our galleries and our art history books. This was an era of immense creativity, economic prosperity and social change. 

So, who are these women? Art Collector, author and broadcaster, Thomas Murrell will talk about Hidden Talent: Untold Stories of the Fairview Art Collection, at the Walkerville Town Hall.
One of his favourites is Gilberton artist Mary Millicent Wigg (1904 – 2001 – Australian Oil Painter).
