Who We Are

Bringing diversity in the arts to the Southern Highlands and beyond

We are the Artists of the Round Yard Inc. (ARY), a group of painters, sculptors, printmakers, photographers, and jewellery makers, based at Retford Park. Previously the Southern Highlands home of James Fairfax AC, Retford Park is now part of the National Trust of Australia (NSW). We started the Artists of the Round Yard to bring diversity in medium and style to Retford Park. Here we are… in the Round Yard!
