Heartfelt: Modern Homage to an Ancient Landscape
On view 10 February – 18 March 2018
Four local artists Jill Cairns, Trish Clarke, Kim Madden and Jan Wilson spread their wings and travelled to Alice Springs to paint en plein air in the MacDonnell Ranges.
Exploring the region together they painted and sketched in stunning locations across the East and West MacDonnells and Finke Gorge National Park. In the evenings they discussed the day’s work and shared a meal. Each artist was inspired not only by the powerful and ancient desert landscape with its changing light, mesmerising colour and muscular physicality but somewhat to their surprise, the resonating spiritualty of a place which had existed since time began.
This exhibition is very much an illustration of artists exploring, painting and being inspired together but seeing and responding altogether differently.
