The Leviny sisters had a great interest in following the growth of Australian Art in the early 20thCentury. They supported both male and female artists, the rise of printmaking and were instrumental in the formation of the Castlemaine Art Gallery and Museum.

In this special tour, Christine Lloyd will bring to life the story of the remarkable Leviny family and their relationship with the Arts and Crafts movement and Buda’s Australian Arts collection.
