Well known local artist, Brian’s work is always on show at The Convent.
Acrylic on Canvas Paintings
“My name is Graeme Myrteza, proud family man, farmer and painter from the hills of Thorpdale, a small country town in Gippsland, Victoria. I have lived and worked here nearly all of my life.”
Barbara’s trademark style is painting with acrylics on printed fabric. The colourful fabric in the background is typically blended into the core subject, adding another an interesting element to the painting. This method of painting on the floor means that she can create a ‘studio’ anywhere in the world
Paris born artist & advertsing illustrator, now living in Melbourne.
His work is polished & classic, yet modern & sassy!
Burnished Black Bowl Series
“The beginning. Returning to the source. The simple black bowl. After my eight year journey around the world, during which time I worked and lived in many different cultures I returned filled with riches all of which, in one way or another, are to be found in the simple black bowl forms.”
Showing in the Cafe
Acrylic & watercolour paintings
Etchings and Bronze Sculptures.
Unsurpassed shorelines, meandering creeks, the iconic Cable Beach, rugged
pindan rocky cliffs, these elements all combine to set the stage for the main
feature, the Kimberley coast. It’s from the breathtaking coastal vistas that I
draw my artist inspiration and it’s an idyllic palette for my studio.
“My friends often joke that they would like to visit the inside of my head”.
Michael Portley has created a series of oil
paintings depicting the landscape found
around him in the Hepburn Shire, with a focus on capturing the light and colours.
