FEBRUARY 2020

“Country Scenes” by Kerry Herrod (First Gallery)
Kerry was born in Lismore, New South Wales. She studied Art for four years at Richmond River High School. She moved to North Queensland in the late 1990s and attended Art classes under Ray Rumbold from Melbourne. She has attended two summer schools at McGregor College and held two solo exhibitions in Charters Towers which were very successful, before moving to Caboolture where she hairdressed for 20 years. Now retired, Kerry is concentrating on her art again. She loves to capture the true country as she sees it and loves to watch it come alive on the canvas in front of her as she paints. She represents the true country scenes on canvas.

“A Walk In My Country” by Anthony “Boy” Turnbull (Second Gallery)
Anthony Turnbull is known by his nickname “Boy”. He attended school in Alpha, Central Queensland from 1972 to 1977, before his family moved to Chinchilla. It wasn’t until he landed a job in Toowoomba at the age of 16 years and learned the art of Aboriginal painting, making boomerangs, shadow boxes and bark painting that he really took an interest in it. Many of Boy’s stories in his artworks come from his Elders, from his collection of indigenous books and quite a few come from deep within his heart and soul when he places himself in his ancestors minds of what they would be doing, or what they would be painting as they sat around teaching their children and sharing their stories to the young.

“Memories In Black And White” by Jan Ferguson (Third Gallery)
Jan is a self taught artist and has been combining painting and care work for over thirty years. She prefers to work in acrylic for its texture and drying qualities. Jan was born and lived in Western Queensland and painted mainly landscape from memories of the land and farm living. She loves to work on recycled items like old saws, tubs, irons and anything else that she finds. With metal objects preparation is the important task before painting so that they last without further decay. Giving these items new life is like repurposing items for other use. This exhibition will be both canvas and recycled metal objects with the theme Life in the Bush

Pastel Society of Australia Members Exhibition (Whole Gallery)

The Pastel Society of Australia Inc is a not for profit art society devoted to the education of member artists and promotion of the use of soft pastels as a fine art medium. Soft pastels are pure pigment in a stick form. Members are predominantly based in South East Queensland but also have many country, interstate and international members. Many members are gaining worldwide recognition for their talent and the trend seems to be exponentially expanding. Soft pastels are gaining worldwide popularity even in China where it is an integral part of the art curriculum in education from preschool onwards.

The Wondai exhibition is open to all members to showcase the wide variety of subjects and styles that can be created using this medium. All styles may be represented and may include examples of photographic realism, impressionistic realism, representational realism to even abstract. It is hoped that the general public viewing these works will appreciate the versatility and luminosity of soft pastel as a medium and may even purchase a painting to enjoy forever.
