Ferry Park Gallery

‘Artist of the Month’ Ferry Park Gallery’s featured Artist of the Month for January is Karin Brear, who first started painting in 1993, after a lesson in decorative art and hasn’t stopped painting since. Karin further describes her art journey. “I love painting in pastel, acrylic, oil, watercolour and mixed media and enjoy painting seascapes, sunrises, sunsets, landscapes, waves, birds, florals and abstracts just to name a few. My inspiration comes from the world around us. Being an artist, you certainly take more notice of our wonderful landscape and flora and fauna. There is always a subject that will take my interest. I also love photography, so I have many reference photos to choose from as inspiration for my artwork. Since moving to the Clarence Valley from Brisbane, the inspiration never stops. I just need more hours in a day to fit everything in. I am exhibiting all original works in different mediums; paintings – large and small, unframed matted paintings, 2021 diary with a reusable painted cover and blank cards with my artwork featured. I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoy creating it for you.” 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 – 5pm. Di Nixon
