A combination of pastel and photography works will be on display at Gin Gin Courthouse Gallery as part of the upcoming Drawing From Life exhibition.
Opening on Saturday, 5 February, the exhibition curated by local artist and President and Gallery Manager Suzanne Mahy Robinson will showcase a range of pieces that are both photographs and pastel works.
Suzanne said the exhibition had been inspired by the local area, encouraging residents to visit Gin Gin and take a look for themselves.
“A lot of the pieces in the exhibition are inspired by the local area, and showcase the beauty of our own backyard,” Suzanne said.
“The pieces are all inspired by things that I enjoy and love in life, shown through photographic and pastel art pieces.
“There is quite a mixture of works as I have taken the time to take a lot more photos in life and have worked on finishing off a few of the pastel pieces that I have had on the go for a little while.”
All of the pieces on display in the Drawing from Life exhibition will be for sale.
Suzanne’s work has taken her from outback Cobar, where she was born, to education in Forbes and Sydney, and around many Australian centres to work and visit.
She has spent many years in outback areas developing her own style and choices, while raising a family.
The Drawing from Life exhibition will be open to public from Saturday, 5 February until Wednesday, 2 March 2022.
Normal Gallery hours are Tuesday to Friday from 9am to 4pm.
Admission to the gallery is Free. Disabled Access to the Gallery and amenities are available.
The Gin Gin Courthouse Gallery is located at 80a Mulgrave Street, Gin Gin (next to Police Station).
