Gunnedah Bicentennial Creative Arts Gallery will play host to ‘Paintbrushes and Pencils’ – an exhibition showcasing the collective works of Liverpool Plains’ artists.
The exhibition will explore the arts practices of 10 artists, including Robbie Duck, Robyn Marheine, Zoe Cartwright, Linda Cheyne, Sienna Cartwright, David Austin, Jean Phillips, Di McNeil, Leanne Fields and Brian Duck.
‘Paintbrushes and Pencils’ explores each artist’s journey of depicting realistic landscapes, elements of nature and the attributes of people and places, and transferring them to canvas, paper and board.
Each artist has enjoyed developing their practice and the qualities of their chosen mediums of oils, acrylic, watercolour, pastels, graphite, silverpoint and coloured pencils.
“I love painting in oil paints with the beautiful colours and textures that can be achieved. I paint mostly traditional country scenes from all over Australia, with the strong colours produced by the Australian sun, soil, water and other aspects of nature,” Quirindi artist Robbie Duck said.
Gunnedah Shire Council Cultural Precinct Team Leader Lauren Mackley said “this is an exhibition that those who appreciate the refined ability of realism will definitely enjoy”.
The exhibition will be open for public viewing from Friday, 19 April. The official opening will be at 1:00pm on 27 April, 2019 and will continue until Friday, 31 May 2019. Light refreshments will be available at the opening.
