American Impressionism

You've got plenty of time to view the Queensland Art Gallery's latest show, American Impressionism & Realism which will be at the Gallery until 20 September, but don't hold back. It's an exhibition filled with light and love, paintings that shine and capture the moment with amazing clarity, images that take you there in a moment.

There are many big American names like Sargent and Whister, and many of the much loved Australian impressionists, including McCubbin, Bunny, Condor and Roberts. There's even one of my all time favourites by Vida Lahey,"Monday Morning".

Although I enjoyed just wandering through the exhibition - I'd love to go to The Met Up Late (Friday nights from 5.30 -9.30 pm) which includes a DJ spinning American jazz on vinyl. Book tickets for this through qtix. Full program details at
