Collection Focus: William Yaxley

Gallery 2.1 | Free

Central Queensland artist William Yaxley paints and sculpts Mount Morgan and Capricornian landscapes in his signature mix of naivety and humour. Rockhampton Museum of Art has invited the artist to select artworks from the RMOA Collection, by friends and colleagues he admires, to display alongside pieces by Yaxley himself, to tell the story of his artistic life.
