Congratulations to Tasmanian artist Maggie Jeffries, who has been awarded the Glover Country Residency. Glover Country covers a 4000ha area and listed by Heritage Tasmania as both a built and natural cultural site. The property includes Glover’s house and barn at Patterdale, as well as the house which Pitcairn built and named Nile Farm. With its picturesque views and rolling hills this unique landscape inspire many of Glover’s most famous paintings. Jeffries will be undertaking a month long residency at the Patterdale homestead with the aim of further exploring how this unique environment intersects with memory, and an enduring yet evolving connection to sites of personal and natural growth. Jeffries will be following in Glover’s footsteps, developing a series of landscape and flora paintings based on the gardens that influenced his most famous artworks. This new series of paintings will be part of Jeffries upcoming solo exhibition opening 20 September 2023. This highly anticipated solo exhibition will also feature a new suite of paintings created during a recent residency at the Rosamond McCulloch Studio in Paris, paying homage to Claude Monet and his famous garden.
