Student Watercolour Creations
Student works from workshop – rural theme

Nine people attended each with varying degrees of experience, Jenny was very patient teaching everyone how to do simple but effective foliage, being aware of perspective, foreground, backgrounds and shadows.  One of the exercises was to paint a whole picture with only two colours.

Each participant finished almost 3 paintings each –  a great achievement!   All reported back a fun and enlightening weekend.

Coolah Historical Exhibition


After quite a lot of work by members of Pandora Gallery and Coolah & District Historical Society, the Coolah Historical Exhibition is now open!

Come in and see artefacts loaned from Coolah residents dating back to the late 1800s and up to the 1950s  along with some historical photos.   We don’t have a museum in town, so this is as close as we get – but only for a few weeks.

There are 5 main sections in the display – Home Life, Agriculture, Social Life, Coolah Photographs and a special section on Chad Martin, a local WWII pilot and Commanding Officer of 460 RAAF Squadron, part of Bomber Command in England during the war, where the famous G for George Lancaster bomber originated.

The exhibition is at Pandora Gallery
Coolah Shire Hall Building, Binnia Street, Coolah

The building is open the following hours:

Monday: 10:00 am – 5:30 pm (Closed from 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm)
Tuesday: 10:00 am – 5:30 pm
Wednesday: 1:00 pm – 5:30 pm
