The Gallery Mogo is a CABBI venture, that is open to local and regional visual art practitioners. From Carleta Delac’s studio, the Old Tin Shed in Moruya, she has produced a series of paintings inspired by Haiku poems Carleta says "At present I am exploring Art through Haiku poetry written by a friend. I am using much larger canvasses and enjoying this immensely. I love colour and like to inject an element of fun into my paintings. I still get excited by using new techniques. Japanese Haiku are word picture poems in 3 lines, in this instance the subjects cover black silhouettes, sunflowers, moon glow and a black cockatoo. Carleta covers a number of painting techniques including oils, water colour, acrylic and mixed mediums, often using credit cards to apply the medium. This credit card technique has been used extensively on a series of original prints for commissioned portraits on paper or canvas.
