The work of Eurobodalla artist Shirley Goodhew is the next to adorn the walls of the new Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre in Moruya.
Deep Waters, an eclectic and contemporary exhibition, spans more than 20 years’ of work and opens at the Bas this Friday.
Eurobodalla Council’s creative arts coordinator Indi Carmichael said Goodhew’s practice was strongly influenced by her personal connection with nature.
“We’re excited to have Goodhew as the first local artist to kick off a jam-packed program of exhibitions at the Bas over the next 12 months,” Ms Carmichael said.

“Deep Waters showcases a combination of oil and acrylic paintings and 3D artworks that use a range of materials and explores the artist’s sense of place and her deep interest in the human experience.”
The exhibition opening is on Friday 22 March, 6-8pm, and it continues Tuesdays-Sundays, 10am-4pm, until Sunday 14 April at the Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre, at the corner of Campbell and Vulcan Streets, Moruya.
Goodhew will also be at the Bas for a one-day residency on Saturday 13 April.
“Visitors can observe Goodhew as she makes and creates within the art gallery, surrounded by her beautiful work.” Ms Carmichael said.
“She will also happily answer questions about the Deep Waters exhibition and her extensive art practice.”
