Join The Friends for an Exclusive Preview Night of AN INTERIOR LIFE | William Johnston and his Collection
Enjoy a visually enticing display of over 400 years of art history, and share in William Johnston’s lifetime passion for collecting beautiful things.
Over his lifetime Johnston assembled the most astonishing collection now comprising more than 1,400 objects of mostly 18th century English furniture, paintings, ceramics and objet d’art, now regarded as one of the best collections of its kind in Australasia.
Rare items will adorn each room of Fairhall exhibition-house as you immerse yourself in otherworldly treasures and luscious interiors, filled with stories of travel and tales of the past. Experience objects gathered by William Johnston unfettered by ropes or barriers.
AN INTERIOR LIFE offers a traditional interpretation of the Collection.
This exhibition is supported by The Friends of The Johnston Collection.
