“All Sorts” is an exhibition of recent oil paintings and ink drawings, showcasing the subjects I am drawn to and outlining my working practice from the past 12 months. As I am predominantly a plein air painter many of the works are of landscapes painted on site around Sydney harbour and beaches. When the weather isn’t favourable I work in the studio often on still life. Therefore, there is also a wide selection of floral works in the show, often of flowers that I have picked or collected on my way to the studio.
Exhibition Opens: 2pm-4pm, Saturday 24 February 2018. Exhibition Closes: 11 March 2018. Location: Fellia Melas Gallery, 2 Moncur Street, Woollahra NSW 2025. Website: www.fmelasgallery.com.au. Contact: 02 9363 5616. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
