Ferry Park Gallery – Artist of the Month

Artist of the Month is shared by two exceptionally talented embroiderers this month, highlighting traditional forms of stitch craft.

Marlene Sheehan has been a member of the Lower Clarence Arts & Crafts Association and Maclean Patchwork & Quilters Group for several years.

Marlene has specialised in candle wicking and stumpwork embroidery for over 30 years. She finds hand applique and any form of patchwork enjoyable.

Marlene has acquired an Advanced Certificate in Commercial Needlework at TAFE.

Pam Le Couteur is a long-term member of the Lower Clarence Arts & Crafts Association.

Pam has specialised in silk ribbon and stumpwork embroidery for many years. She also dyes her own silk ribbons and cotton threads.

Pam has sashiko (traditional embroidery from Japan) cushions, hand dyed silk scarves, silk ribbon cards and pin cushions on display at the Ferry Park Gallery.

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.

Ferry Park Gallery has a COVID Safety Plan and is open seven days from 9am – 3pm.
