Murray Art Museum Albury is hosting a field trip to the beautiful Lake Moodemere, the landscape that inspired 19th Century artist Tommy McCrae.
Pack your breakfast picnic for a morning walk along the Tommy McRae Track. Participants will make their own way to the meetup point in Wahgunyah, Victoria before walking as a group along the Tommy McCrae Track.
The natural billabong setting is where artist Tommy McRae worked, walked, and lived with his family during the 1800s. A number of his artworks have been drawn together for our current exhibition ‘on the bank, on the brink’.
The exhibition curator, Bethany Thornber, as well as artist Phil Murray, will lead the walk along the Murray River through river red gum forest, grassy woodland and wetlands before reaching the Lake destination.
This field trip is an opportunity to visit the area where McRae made his drawings and to experience the natural setting that informed his work.
BYO breakfast snacks, picnic rug, sketchbook and bathers.
Free event, bookings are required for planning.
Trail details will be emailed to participants the week of the walk.
Participants will need to organise their own transport to and from the site.
