Tuesday 1 September, was the opening night for LIQUID LIFE, a joint exhibition with my cousin and Central Coast artist, Tracey Scheitel at the Shorethyme Restaurant & Gallery at Norah Head on the NSW Central Coast. The evening was a great success with a big crowd attending for the opening drinks and following dinner.
Tracey and I have very contrasting styles so having my artwork displayed altogether in one room of the restaurant and all of Tracey’s in the adjoining room worked out to be a really good way of displaying all our work.
Despite our artwork looking quite different, to tie everything together this exhibition has been inspired by the theme of water – Liquid Life – in our daily lives and all around us and includes watercolours, acrylics, pencil drawings, linocuts and mixed media.
The exhibition will be showing from 1 – 13 September 2015 at Shorethyme Restaurant & Gallery at 9 Mitchell Street, Norah Head on the NSW Central Coast, 4396 4507. Gallery hours: Tuesday to Saturday from 2pm (till restaurant closes in the evening), 9 – 4pm on Sundays.
Here is a photo taken of myself and Tracey (in red) on opening night, looking very happy that after all our hard work over the last few months the exhibition has finally opened!
