22 June – Special event at MCH with National Portrait Gallery

We are thrilled to be collaborating with the National Portrait Gallery and host a special afternoon at the home of Manning and Dymphna Clark. Discover where the portrait painting Manning Clark at Wapengo NSW, 1972 by Arthur Boyd (featuring Tuppence the dog), was originally displayed and explore the home’s many books.

Bas Clark will give a short talk about the portrait and guides will be available at various points around the House to discuss aspects of the Robin Boyd building.

Devonshire tea will be provided, served on the Clarks’ beautiful blue and white crockery, and guests are encouraged to meander through the grounds.

Bookings are essential. Tickets $15/$12 for MCH members and Circle of Friends.
