Haefligers Cottage

One of Australia’s leading contemporary artists, Garry Shead has been exhibiting in Australia for over thirty years, including thirteen Archibald Prize exhibitions. He won the Archibald in 1993. Married to Hungarian sculptor Judith Englert, the couple lives in the coastal town of Bundeena on the NSW South Coast – the inspiration for the Bundeena Paintings and his now famous DH Lawrence series.

Inspired by the great frescos of Italy and France, and his fascination with the rich heritage of Hill End, it is Shead’s dream to paint a large fresco in the old church building in the village.
