Two local artists are sharing the Old Kirk exhibition space at Yamba Museum from October 4 to 22.

From Sea to Sky Here & There Art Exhibitions

Jan Hudson is presenting work entitled From Sea to Sky realism in watercolours. Her passion is to paint all things she sees in nature and delight the viewer in the same way. This work is centred on Yamba experiences.

Jan has been an artist for the last 18 years working in watercolour and pastel. “My journey started a lot like everyone else whose creative juices were bubbling just below the surface. In my case painting was my choice and I must admit my first attempt at watercolour was a disaster, water went everywhere and so did the paint. But I like a challenge and I am determined to never give up and meet each painting with enthusiasm.”

Marg Morgan shares her work Here & There, a collection from experiences that inspired, moved and delighted her. “Much of my inspiration comes from my travels here in Australia and in China, Japan, Indonesia, Singapore, Canada, Alaska, New Zealand and the Cook Islands. These experiences have led to my appreciation of the preservation of cultural and natural beauty. I also draw on my background in Early Childhood Education for a sense of play which feeds my experimentation and my years of work in Child and Family Protection underpin work that moves me to depict protection or injustice.” Marg’s exhibit includes some background stories, source photos and items from her travel collections.
