The Gallery Mogo presents: Judy Lawler

Creative Arts Batemans Bay (CABBI) after recovering from the fires, storm damage and the

coronavirus shutdown, have renovated the Gallery Mogo ready for the Exhibition opening at 5.00pm on Friday the 19 June 2020 at The Gallery 2/52 Stanley Street Mogo.

The Gallery Mogo is a CABBI venture, that is open to local and regional visual art and craft


All CABBI sponsors, members and the general public are invited to join us in a celebration of our local visual artists, with an exhibition that features Judy Lawler, a 3D artist and painter.

Judy Lawler a long term member of CABBI said "I am a painter of light filled land and seascapes but I do not use a brush to create my pictures. Rather I deftly wield my palette knife to blend undiluted oil paint, while retaining the richness of colour and feel of this medium.

"I have a unique style of smoothing the paint, so it is sometimes hard to distinguish it from

the use of a brush.I find that moving the paint around the canvas with a palette knife is such a joy."

The Gallery Mogo exhibition will be open for 8 weeks, for visitors to experience, first hand,

the joy, which Judy brings to in her recently completed paintings, titled Family day at the beach.

The exhibition ranges from some her earlier works, Beach of Fun at Berrara, which glows

with light and colours, in a happy beach scene of families enjoying the day at a favourite old


Other works include scenes of many of Judy’s favourite Batemans Bay scenes, which depict the boats moored on the Clyde River, rolling hills and trees on the way to Araluen, a view of historic Braidwood, a semi-abstract acrylic and a small pastel of a day out at the cricket.

The Gallery Mogo supports community groups by running fund raising events to raise

money for specific events, including the people affected by the fires. Judy has been involved over the years with a number of charitable events, which continues to this day.

Judy said "My philosophy is you use what you do to help others. The Gallery Mogo has a

range of products based on my artwork and created as part of a mentorship program for

workers with special needs and with the proceeds going to the Brunswick Sheltered
