Australian bushlands

This is a big exhibition for us with some major artworks by established artists.

Australian bushlands is a curated exhibition of paintings and prints and is a tribute to our native bushlands, so much of which was burnt out by the summer bush fires.

Robin Howard has painted some beautiful little paintings, oil on paper, of bushlands in Collector and at East Lynne. No. 7. After the bush fires, Mt Agony Road, East Lynne and No. 12. Spotted gum after the bush fires.

Robbie is also a print maker and in this exhibition we have a large image 120x80cm, May’s Lane, Collector. And, a small oil painting on paper of May’s Lane, Collector.

Lynne Flemons is showing two large paintings from a residency in Cateract Gorge, near Launceston, Tasmania. Lynne completed a M. Philosophy (Arts and social sciences) at ANU in 2015.

A committee artists Lynne has undertaken artist residencies in Finland, Crete, Ireland, France, Italy, Cairns, QLD and Tasmania.

It is always a challenge hanging an exhibition. For this one I had the help of gallery assistant, Zara Bonet, who is quickly learning the system and is a whizz on the website. Her mother, Mary, took this photo. We got the job done in no time and I’m loving the result. Come and see for yourself.

Please join us for the opening

Sunday, March 15 at 2pm

The exhibition will be opened by Upper Lachlan Shire Council's General Manager,
