The Clayton Utz Art Partnership brings together a unique collaboration between two outstanding Australian artists and our firm.

Each exhibition presents an opportunity to showcase the work of two contemporary artists in the offices of Clayton Utz. Our exhibition space offers a unique visual art experience for clients to get up-close and personal with an amazing array of artwork.

Following the success of our first Melbourne exhibition we are excited to launch our second exhibition featuring artwork by two Victorian based artists, Rhys Lee and Heidi Yardley. The uniquely curated program allows both artists to explore and display their work in one of Australia’s leading corporate environments. Guests visiting the exhibition will have an opportunity to explore the artwork in an intimate and innovative environment. The Clayton Utz Art Partnership is a truly exciting initiative and demonstrates our pride as an Australian firm committed to the cultural sector, and the broader creative communities in which we live and work.

A Fine Romance is an exhibition about beauty and deceit. Featuring hyper-real paintings and sculptures by eleven leading contemporary artists, it is as seductive as it is awe-inspiring.

Dog Days

Jan Murphy Gallery

Feb 25 to March 25 2017

486 Brunswick Street

Fortitude Valley


The humble studio dog has played confidante, silent critic and muse to the artist for centuries. Many of these dogs sit quietly on studio floors while their owners paint, sculpt and produce work.

Dog Days is a simple ode to these special friends. It is an opportunity for their owners to honour their companions, to thank them for their tireless devotion and late nights burning the midnight oil before exhibition deadlines. Some have ‘borrowed’ their subjects but all have portrayed them with the respect they deserve.

EXHIBITING ARTISTS: Jason Benjamin, Lucy Culliton, Jason Fitzgerald, James Guppy, Claudia Greathead, Linde Ivimey, Rhys Lee, Adam Lester, William Mackinnon, Robert Malherbe, Guy Maestri, Leith Maguire, Ben Quilty, Monica Rohan, Martin Smith, Marina Strocchi, Deborah Williams and Heidi Yardley.
