Heritage House in Bangalow has created an exciting new exhibition space that combines historic displays with local artwork using exhibitions hung on sponsored wooden panels.
The easter exhibition features the works of two well known local artists Karena Wynn-Moylan and Simon Harriot.
The exhibition will be open Tuesday to Sunday, 10 am-4 pm with a percentage of the profits going towards the Museum.
Both artists are presenting works that relate to Bangalow – Simon is displaying his colour field landscapes while Karena Wynn-Moylan has a collection of small to medium-sized works inspired by Bangalow ranging from fruit and vegetables, flowers and even cakes!
Simon Harriot uses colour and abstract expressionism to document the landscape of the northern rivers. The common thread that connects all his paintings is a strong and intense colour palette used to analyse and gain an alternative appreciation of the natural beauty of the landscape. His work is connected through colour using harmonious or discordant palettes into layers or blocks of colour and transposes the elements of the environment onto canvas, with vitality and rhythm.
Karena Wynn-Moylan is an award-winning artist of a range of media and a wide variety of subjects. Equally adept at watercolour, oils or acrylics her beautiful draughtsmanship shines through all her subjects of food, flowers and Farmer’s Markets which can be seen at this exhibition.
