You are invited to a floor talk by Cheryl Davison & Annie McCarron at Gallery Bodalla SUNDAY 2 APRIL AT 12 NOON
Annie McCarron lives and has her studio at Kangaroo Valley. She began her professional study of art and art therapy 10 years ago. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from National Art School as well as studying at TAFE and in the UK, Mexico and Japan.
While Annie explores all mediums, she relishes working with watercolour paints.
“It’s immediate and exciting to watch the paint run across the paper and allows a freedom that, for me, cannot be matched when I am steadily working with oils and encaustics.
My work endeavours to capture the ambiance and impression that accompanies each creature, animal, tree or person, that quality or atmosphere each one of us has yet we can never know of ourselves,” Annie said.
She is joined in this show by local Aboriginal artist Cheryl Davison. Working in acrylic and gouache Cheryl’s paintings are distinctly Aboriginal with a strong modern influence. Drawing on stories told to her by family Cheryl paints about the lands of her ancestors – the South Coast and Monero country.
Cheryl has exhibited widely, with works acquired by the Australian National Gallery, Art Gallery of NSW, Wollongong City Gallery and Westpac Banking Corporation, New York. She has been a practicing artist for over 20 years.
The show runs through to 17 April. Gallery Bodalla is located in the heritage Post Office,
66a Princes Hwy, Bodalla open Thursday to Sunday 10.30am to 4pm or by appointment by phoning Valerie 0421 238 174.
