Our artists are a wonderful and talented group!

PAINTINGS - Kerri Redding - opened Friday 6th November 2009 at the Atherton Foyer Gallery, Mabel Street, Atherton. Opened by Ludij Peden, with a weekend of art that locals and out-of-towners alike could join in. This very “arty” weekend included a group painting session on Saturday 9.30 am at Halloran’s Hill overlooking Atherton.

DAB DUETS

FOR THE LOVE OF IT: Dany Alford and Inger Rowe - September 2009- pottery, ceramic sculptures and painting. These two ladies have been loyal students for some time now, and have progressed from beginner to advanced artists in pottery and painting. Both have developed a wide range of artworks over time, and their enthusiasm and willingness to explore new approaches in their art making have resulted in stunning results.

PERSONAL INSPIRATIONS: Ruth Ross and Glenda Gordon - April 2010 - stunning paintings, drawings and photography by two lovely ladies with an eye for local colour.

PERFECTION: Lisa Staunton and Mim Hayward - November 2009- paintings large and small. From small steps large ones emerge. Both Mim and Lisa have become staunch supporters of DAB. They have developed individual styles and subject matter, and both have a passion for beautifully planned and executed paintings that record their world in stunning detail.

OUT OF THE BLUE: Michaela Bohm and Terry Delaney - August 2010 - a selection of stunning textural works by two artists with a very creative flair.
