Narooma Gallery presents: Frida & Feathers

Perpetua (Petti) McInnes and Donna Goulding exhibit new work together for the first time at the Narooma Gallery. Diverse works, both artists explore character, belonging, and personal strength. Thursday, January 12, 2023 10:00 AM until Sunday, January 29, 2023 4:00 PM

  • Narooma School of Art & Soldier's War Memorial Hall Inc92 Campbell Street, Narooma

Goulding’s works are an interpretation of Frida Khalo’s life. Khalo is a muse, model and leader for many women and a source of inspiration for countless artists. Goulding states:

I am interested in the life of Frida Kahlo as she is a strong woman like me, and she inspires me to create and be honest. Frida Kahlo’s strong political, intellectual and deeply patriotic views always sought to be a strong voice for oppressed women. Self-taught, her painting allowed Frida to overcome and alleviate severe physical and psychological pain caused by a debilitating accident.

After a 30 year career in Festival and Event management, McInnes has recommitted to her continued love of creating and painting. The works for this exhibition are an exploration of colour movement. They express McInnes’ fascination with birds, which on observation are like humans, each bird has their own clans and personalities.

All are welcome to come along and listen to the artists talk about their work and stay for drinks and a sausage sizzle immediately after.
