Rhondella Hyde is one of two featured artists at Ferry Park Gallery, Maclean during the month of January.
Works include acrylic painting, graphite pen and ink drawing and includes several new inspiring and colourful abstracts. Rhondella is the winner of many art awards throughout the Clarence Valley, including Grand Champion three times at the Jacaranda Art Exhibition.
The other featured artist is Karl Rubli, Karl has been interested in art all his life. Drawing and painting were hobbies in his young years. Then he had a passion for design…by profession and for pleasure. Later on, his very busy working life stopped him partly from drawing, sculpturing and carving.
A lifelong dream came true when he and his wife retired from Switzerland to Australia in 2005. He was attracted and fascinated by the Clarence region. At once he began to carve in Hebel and wood. It is great to do carving and sculpturing for pleasure, he says.
“There is something magical in timber. It’s about appreciation of wood. And if there are defects and irritation…well, they are of natural beauty and charm”.
This duel exhibition is well worth a visit to experience firsthand the beauty in the creations of Rhondella and Karl. Ferry Park Gallery is open seven days a week, 9 to 5. More information can found on the website: ferrypark.org
