You’ll find the Nexus Gallery nestled in the historical Old Butter Factory complex. It is run solely by volunteers and is an important exhibition and gathering place for local artists and friends.
The Nexus Community Gallery hosts four members’ group shows each year, one of which is the Members’ Art Prize. The remainder of the year the gallery features month-long exhibitions by solo artists or groups of artists.
There are two exhibition spaces: The Main Gallery and The Studio.

Robyn and Scott Jackson
Escaping from Sydney 39 years ago, Scott and Robyin live on a bush block at Crescent head and share a passion for art, painting and the bold use of colour.
Robyn is a multi-award winning artist, who has been involved in seven solo art exhibitions as well as group exhibitions. Her work features painting on silk with a brilliant colour palette and strong design lines created with a gutta resist outline, followed by watercolour-like dyes in an Expressionist style. “I have been fascinated by the luminosity of silk and dye and it’s sometimes unexpected results. I am inspired by beautiful shapes and rich colours in the landscape. I am a colourist and enjoy using complementary colours to create a vivid contrast in my landscapes. I like to start with an image and let the colours create the story or mood.”
Scott has been creating artworks, including paintings drawings and wall hangings, for over 45 years and has exhibited in 19 solo exhibitions and many group exhibitions. “I am essentially a self-taught artist and work mainly in oils and acrylics and ink. I also like ink drawing, sketching the landscape and life drawing, as well as collage and mixed media work.”
Scott likes working with painting knives, which allows the work to develop a very textured look and when using inks alongside thick structured paint, a fluidity can be achieved. Scott also uses “sgraffito” or scratching back style as a way of incorporating detail into thick painted textures with layers of colour.
