A City Seen presented a warmly nostalgic, but diverse collection of artists-eye-views of Brisbane.

A City Seen

From early artworks that gaze upon pastoral landscapes through to more contemporary scenes of our busy river city, this visual arts exhibition documented the growth and evolution of Brisbane since it’s European settlement. The ‘workers cottage’ lined streets of Spring Hill, iconic buildings and landmarks and views of the Brisbane River were revealed in a range of media including painting, printmaking and photography.

The works displayed in A City Seen were drawn from the City of Brisbane Collection, featuring more than 40 artists including Kenneth Jack, Vida Lahey, Robert Moore and Lloyd Rees.
