BURRA REGIONAL ART GALLERY

December 2014

Showing a marvellous mix of 2D image-making techniques, this is a stimulating exhibition and fundraiser for the gallery. When it comes to the point, “the books must balance”. However, this intriguing display of artworks is the best surprise of all.

Watercolours by Janet Eason – note the amazing “Misty Morning, Batad” hanging next to the entry (on the other side of the wall two of three oils by Len Bence), Haley O’Shea’s country life impressions much appreciated by viewers for the splashy technique, carefully observed detail and touch of humour, Maxine Donald’s impressive “Across the Torrens” and jewel-like “Cyclamen”, Heather Parker’s “Windfarm, Hallett”, “NE Pastoral” and “Panarmittee Creek”, and Burra’s own Nan Annell’s “Autumn Leaves” and “Calla Lilies”.
