On display at Carrick Hill House, Springfield
Samuel Thomas “S.T.” Gill was one of the first professional artists to work in South Australia and worked prolifically here in the 1840s. Many of his vivid depictions have now become iconic images of colonial South Australia. This exhibition, created for Carrick Hill House, Springfield, draws on the Gallery’s extensive collection of Gill watercolours, to present a showcase of views of the South Australian landscape.
