Exhibition – Kirstie McCauley

Pandora Gallery will be hosting a new exhibition in June and July by emerging artist, Kirstie McCauley.

Kirstie began her art journey only a few years ago from the point of believing she couldn’t even draw a stick figure.   In her first painting she decided one of the trees needed to be magenta pink … this sparked her love for colour and the realisation of the freedom that art could provide – there are no rules!   In a short space of time, Kirstie tried acrylic, watercolour, pastels, mixed media, collage and gouache as she continued to learn and test out her newly found skills.


Her exhibition at Pandora Gallery will showcase colourful original paintings, in a mostly smaller format, all framed and for sale at very reasonable prices.

The exhibition will be available to view throughout June and July.

The opening night will be on Friday 3 June at 6.30pm.  Refreshments will be served.   A gold coin donation would be appreciated.

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.
