Australia Felix is the title for the suite of ten etchings by Jeff Makin, inspired by the Australian landscape. Jeff and Elizabeth Makin generously donated an edition of this suite of etchings to Central Goldfields Art Gallery in 2019 through the Australian Government's Cultural Gifts Programme, and they will be presented for the first time at the gallery in this exhibition. In 2019, Jeff Makin explored the local landscape and was drawn to the Grand Duke Mine in Timor. His subsequent painting has been acquired by Central Goldfields Art Gallery and will also be on public display for the first time as part of this exhibition.
