Four On The Wall
Four artists of the Clarence Valley, Skye McKenny, Bruce Zietsch, Pam Fysh and Jude McBean are presenting paintings, drawings, and mixed media work in Four On The Wall, as part of the plunge festival at the Old Kirk, Yamba Museum.
Four On The Wall officially opens at 5.30pm Saturday 1 April. All members of the public are kindly invited to attend. Entry is free. Refreshments and nibbles are being served.
While all four artists are long term residents of the Clarence Valley this is the first time the artists have exhibited together, a unique event given their varied artistic lives.
Skye McKenny mostly paints from what she sees - her favourite being Australian native plants and local Clarence Valley scenes, with the occasional wander into the mountains of the New England.
Bruce Zietsch’s large acrylic paintings are highly detailed glimpses of thoughts and memories of his world. His studio based work draws on his experiences in the environment.
Jude McBean recently moved from the Orara River near Eatonsville to Yamba. Her work is now mapping out her new coastal environment
Pam takes inspiration and ideas from drawing from the human figure and the environment. In the studio she creates multilayered mixed media works that express a love of the human form, the Australian bush and its birds.
After the official opening the exhibition is open at the same time as the museum - 10am to 4.30pm Tuesday to Thursday and 2pm to 4.30pm Saturday and Sunday.
The artists are giving an Artists Talk at 10.30am Wednesday 19 April. Everyone is invited to enjoy meeting the artists and be introduced to their work in detail.
The Yamba Museum is located in River Street just east of the Yamba Golf Club. Entry is $5. The exhibition continues to 4.30pm Sunday 30 April.
