Overview

As Aarwun Gallery enters it's 25th year in Canberra, they present this unique cultural event featuring Australian modern master landscape impressionist artist Ken Knight’s retrospective exhibition of 80 original paintings, representing a lifetime of artistic dedication. Ken Knight is a unique Australian painter - unique not by subject matter or by representation, but by standing alone after forty years developing a style that captures breathtakingly beautiful renditions of the equally unique Australian landscape, Venice and Antarctica.

Join Ken Knight at the opening night with Australian cello royalty David Pereira, his former student Rachel Scott and five more of his current students (ranging from ages 8-24). With each new work, an extra cello will be added, until there will be the sound of six! There will be musical moments that will get your toes tapping, others that will make you smile, and times where you’ll be filled with musical peace – there’ll be something for everyone.

This special event opening will include buffet style food and drinks.
