Visitors are very welcome .

CURRENT EXHIBITION

25 February – 22 March

 

Main Studio

Essence of Place

Robyn Simon – This collection of work has centred around a love of painting the landscape.  Chasing a balance of tone, colour and light I am trying to convey what it is I love about the subject.

Kathryn Fenton – This current collection of plein air work reflects myexperiences driving through the expansive landscapes and big skies of Inverell,Bingara, Narrabri and back through Barraba, Bundara to the Coffs Coast in 2023.

Sally Hook – I have explored TREES for Essence Of Place. Trees are Nature’s sentinels, eternal spirits of Earth, protectors and producers of oxygen, water, stabilizers of soil, givers of shelter and shade.

Lynne Mak – I am inspired by the natural Australian landscape. I use loose lines and colours in ink, acrylic and oil to reproduce and capture the essence and memory of my surrounds and places visited.

George Partos – The journey began when I retired some years back and still continues. The power of the moment when in a creative zone is truly intoxicating and liberating and I whole heartedly embrace it.


Studio

Photography by Peter James

Peter James is a multi award-winning Australian cinematographer, filming all around the world for 55 years.  He’s also a passionate still photographer.

At the age of five, Peter and his brother Tony (seven) were sitting on the water’s edge with their mum at Bronte beach.   A big wave swept them out into the very fast rip! They were fortunately rescued by Lifesavers. His colourful documentary photos celebrate his heroes of the surf.

Peter wanted to do something theatrical and different in 4 x5 black & white to celebrate the beauty of creation and humanity. The images were carefully composed by placing a single Man in the Landscape.
