Exhibition Opening Night – Anjee du Terreau

Pandora Gallery hosted a wonderful opening night for the brilliantly hued landscapes of Anjee du Terreau of Mudgee. The Gallery is a colour palette from the deep blues of rivers and seas to the burnt oranges and brilliant highlights of the outback.

More than fifty people enjoyed the rich and diverse landscapes on show and chatted with friends from near and far, many Dunedoo folk and Coonabarabran and Mudgee visitors.

Anjee is a delightful “Pocket Rocket”, originally from the UK but happily now in OZ with its kaleidoscope of brilliant colours. Trained as a photographer, then working as a ceramicist, Anjee has now found her real love in the palette of colours around Mudgee with its hills and vineyards, trees and rivers.

Anjee told us that not all paintings are conceived effortlessly – some are completed with blood, sweat and tears and others just magically appear on the canvas when her muse, the inspiration of all creative processes, helps you out.

It is interesting that Anjee is her own critic and if she feels disconnected from the work, if she doesn’t feel its energy, then it will be painted over. If a painting is worth a thousand words, then there are thousands of words hanging on these walls.

Anjee’s brilliant creations will be in Pandora Gallery until the end of April so pop in and be uplifted in the colours of Nature that surround us but sometimes we need to see them through others’ eyes to really appreciate them.

Exhibition Opening Night – Photography Competition

Pandora Gallery held an opening night event, for the gallery’s inaugural photography competition / exhibition, on Friday 7th October. It was attended by over fifty people and all were wowed by the calibre of the photographs. Coolah History, Art and Tourism Sub-Committee (CHATS), Chairperson, Janelle Esdaile, opened the event by thanking everyone for attending and commended the community on their support of the competition.

“The committee and I were absolutely overwhelmed by the response to the call out to local photographers, with over 150 photos being entered”, Janelle said.

Janelle went on to explain that the competition is broken into five categories, these being; Landscape, Sun & Light, Water, People and Animals. The competition will run until mid-November, at which point the votes will be counted and the winners in each category will be announced. The photos will remain on show until late November.
