“Words Worthy”   by Zane Stuart

A survey of Zane’s work and its themes over the last twenty five years reveals a large proportion of paintings, sketches and screen prints etc. containing words or phrases that have an impact on our daily lives. This in some cases has been unplanned or could be described as subliminal reactions to events both pleasing and in some cases traumatic. Zane has found it interesting to study the resilience of people and how they cope with pleasure and pain, often amounting in the utterance of a short phrase, like a long phrase might seem pretentious or maybe a waste of time. It's a large subject, so instead of getting bogged down in heavy analysis, Zane has produced, deliberately this time, a series of singular words or short phrases to make easier our understanding of what a normal day is for many of us.

He Gave Us Eyes To See Them”   by Helen Blythman 

Nature and its beauty is the inspiration of Helen’s art.  Helen is motivated by her belief in a great and good creator of the universe who gives us eyes to see and appreciate His wonderful creation. Helen’s other motivation is to give whatever money she receives from her art work to the Developing Foundation in the name of her Grandson, Dylan Geary (16 years old) who has special needs. He is an amazing young man.

This exhibition includes a variety of media: oil, acrylic, pastel, pen and ink and aquarelle. The subject matter is varied, ranging from the awesome mountains of the Flinders ranges to the Variegated Fairy Wren Family; from the portrait of Young Harry (our grandson), to the Uniting Church family, Kingaroy; and the montage of my father-in-law who was gassed in the WWI to the portrait of my mother ( a 1933 bride).
