Take in Outback Art at Absalom's Gallery

Broken Hill is a mecca of outback art, so why not start your journey into the city's thriving art scene by taking in the work of one of it's most famous residents? Jack Absalom was an artist, author and TV presenter who spent most of his live in Broken Hill, and all of it in the rugged Aussie outback. He had a strong passion for bushcraft and adventure, which translated into a number of books and TV programs educating people on survival skills when in the outback. His love of his homeland was not purely functional though, the harsh landscapes and deep-red earth inspired Jack to paint throughout his life, becoming a renowned artist who's work has adorned the walls of galleries from here to London, New York and Rome.

Absalom was part of the 'Brushmen of the Bush', a collective of five artists from Broken Hill whose distinct yet cohesive styles of painting brought the spirit of the outback to the wider world. Beginning in the early 1970's, the Brushmen of the Bush became an iconic part of Broken Hill's history and set the tone for the thriving arts scene in the city today. Take the opportunity to visit Absalom's gallery, and peruse the work of a man who had dedicated his life to appreciation of the outback.
