Since 2017, Wangaratta Art Gallery has been bestowed a number of generous donations of works by Judy Cassab from the Cassab Family. As a result, Wangaratta Art Gallery has within its holdings a significant number of works by this Australian female artist consisting of portraits, interiors and landscapes. Assisted by the Australian Government Cultural Gifts Program, the exhibition showcases these significant donations and celebrates Cassab’s important contribution to Australian Art. Cassab was the first woman to win the Archibald Portrait Prize twice and painted many high profile portraits in her lifetime.
