Reg Rowe – Artworks Bequest Exhibition

Who is Reginald Rowe?

Reg Rowe was born in 1918 and painted professionally from 1945 until his retirement in 2006.  On his retirement he donated his collection of paintings to the Wingecarribee Community Foundation now known as the Southern Highlands Foundation with the aim of creating the Reg Rowe Art Scholarship to assist young artists in their career. 

Proceeds of sale of these paintings will contribute towards the arts in our community.

Reg was an impressionist landscape painter and art author and Associate of the Royal Art society, Life Fellow of the Institute of British Artists, and member of The Berrima District Art Society. His work is represented in the UK, France, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Denmark, Canada, USA and Japan.

Reg built a home in Phillip Street, Burradoo in the 1970’s with his studio in the middle of the house. Here he produced his best works. His subjects came from many areas including Sydney Harbour and Kangaroo Valley, Jamberoo Valley, and Berrima. His Australian painting travels took him to outback Queensland, Western Australia, Tasmania and the Gold coast.

Past scholarship recipients include Hannah Bruce, Madelaine Cruise, Sarah Eddowes, Grace Jenkins and Zoe Young

Art Works are currently on show at Wingecarribee Shire Council – Atrium – Moss Vale
