7 – 29 OCTOBER, 2017

Amanda Hyatt has achieved much acclaim for the innovation and excellence of her watercolours over the last 35 years. She has won many major Art Awards including Camberwell, the Kenneth Jack, the Bale and Artist of the Year at the Victorian Artists Society to name a few.

Amanda is an “alla prima” artist, painting “at first go”. She creates an impressionistic and expressive effect immediately and spontaneously. Her work portrays a sense of light and energy with a play of tones and contrasts, lights and darks and an omission of unnecessary detail.

Don’t miss this wonderful exhibition of inspirational watercolours.

Janet Matthews Exhibition

Janet Matthews is co-exhibiting at the Town and Country Gallery, Yarragon, Victoria from October 8 through October 29, 2017.

Drawing on her recent trips to the Galapagos Islands and South America, the birds and animals she observed in those locations inspired Janet’s pencil drawings in this exhibition. It is obvious from looking at these drawings that patience is a major factor in capturing the essence of these beautiful creatures in their natural habitats.

Janet’s work has been described as “weaving magic” with a pencil. 

Janet shares the spotlight with Darren Gilbert who is also passionate about and captivated by creatures and the environment in this world.
