Chris Ellis: Moments on the Murray

Chris Ellis: Moments on the Murray

Chris was born in Albury (1961) and spent most of his childhood growing up on a farm. He was given his first set of oil paints at age nine.

When Chris wasn’t helping on the farm he could be found in the farm workshop making model boats from scraps of wood, bow and arrows or some other weapon from steelĀ or out in the paddock painting the landscape.

Chris studied Fine Art in Melbourne as a young man, before making a career as a farmer in the Henty district. He maintained his arts practice throughout his working life, with a farm-based studio and many holiday-inspired works.

Since retirement, Chris has embraced art full time, and is now based in Albury. He has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in the region since 2010. In 2015, Chris presented his first MAMA solo exhibition, Aqua Luminous.

We’d love to see you at the opening of Moments on the Murray.
