King Street Gallery on William

Amanda Penrose Hart

Brisbane born artist Amanda Penrose Hart is predominantly a landscape painter. Penrose Hart graduated from Queensland College of Art in 1983 with a Diploma of Fine Art, and then again from Griffith University in 1991, with a Bachelor of Visual Arts.

Penrose Hart has featured in numerous selective group exhibitions, more often than not following artist trip’s or artist-run projects such as Your Friend the Enemy, and Salient (both commemorative exhibitions of the Great War), and River on the Brink: Inside the Murray Darling Basin, which aimed to raise awareness for the impacts of drought and climate change in Australia.

Amanda recently won the Gallipoli Art Prize in 2017 and the Clayton Utz Award in 2019. Amanda has also been a finalist in the Tattersalls Landscape Prize, Kings School Art Prize, the Salon des Refusés and NSW Parliament en Plein air, as well as the Portia Geach Memorial Award, the Kedumba Drawing Award, Muswellbrook Art Prize, and the Kilgour Art Prize.

Amanda’s pieces feature in the collections of the Australian National Maritime Museum, the Australia Cub in both Sydney and Melbourne, both Sydney and the Australian national universities, Macquarie Bank, Parliament House, Canberra, the NSW Bar Association and numerous regional galleries across Australia.

King Street Gallery has represented Amanda since 2003. She lives and works between Sofala and Sydney.
