About

Special opening event 5.30pm Friday 23 April 2021. All welcome, free event. The Gallery is open Saturday to Monday 10am-2pm for the duration of this exhibition For those people who have followed Linden’s artistic journey over the years, this exhibition will highlight a completely new direction in her art. Many of the works vary in style as they are landscapes, a theme, until now, which has not been a part of Linden’s style.' Linden says, “I was interested in using a variety of media and experimenting in ways I hadn't before. Many of these pieces are the first of those.” Since retiring in 2013, Linden and her husband and art manager, Peter Millard, have started to discover Australia. In 2016 they drove through the centre of Australia to Broome and then Darwin and Kakadu. In 2019 they drove along the coast from Geelong to Exmouth in Western Australia, then back via the Pilbara. Linden was awed by the landscape. She said, “It's not only the colours in the environment but the patterns, shapes, textures, lines, history, culture and vastness as well that caused me to want to do this work. But it is the colours that grab you first!”
