Ferry Park Artist of Month June

Ferry Park ‘Artist of the Month’ for June is Maxwell Lloyd.

Max is a lifelong resident of the Clarence Valley. His family had a sawmill at Pillar Valley where he spent a lot of time cutting timber logs, poles, fence posts and sleepers.

Max trained as a boilermaker/welder and went on to work with horses and cattle mustering and camp drafting. This is when he started to look at alternative uses for horseshoes.

By combining his knowledge of native timbers and wood and metal working skills he creates useful and sculptural household items. He also makes timber pens and clocks, all on display at Ferry Park Gallery Maclean.

Lower Clarence Arts and Crafts Association Inc (LCACA) is a not-for-profit community organisation promoting and showcasing artisans of the Clarence Valley. LCACA opened Ferry Park Gallery in 1993 for members to display and sell their work.  LCACA welcome new members to join us as an exhibitor or volunteer to work in our gallery. Ferry Park Gallery is on Big River Way, and easily accessed from the Maclean Interchange on the Pacific Motorway. The Gallery has a COVID Safety Plan and is open 7 days from 9am – 4pm.
