During this period of temporary closure, we have invited members of the CAM community to write brief reflections on aspects of CAM art and museum collections, which we will share on a regular basis.

Reflections is part of an experiment, indeed a commitment from the Castlemaine Art Museum, to make this magnificent resource relevant and uplifting, even when our doors are closed. We thank all who have contributed their knowledge, experience, and passion for the Castlemaine Art Museum and Collections.

We acknowledge Christine Bell for her generous assistance, enabling CAM to share stories and reflections during social isolation.

Tribute to John Nixon (1949–2020)
