About the Exhibition

Primavera is an annual exhibition of young Australian artists aged 35 years and under. Since 1992, the Primavera series has showcased the works of artists in the early stages of their career, many of whom have gone on to exhibit nationally and internationally. In 2014, Primavera celebrates its 23rd edition.

Primavera was initiated in 1992 by Dr Edward Jackson AM, Mrs Cynthia Jackson AM and their family in memory of their daughter and sister Belinda, a talented jeweller who died at the age of 29.

Guest Curator: Mikala Dwyer
