6th June – Renee Kamaretsos

Having lived in France and Greece for several years and travelled extensively throughout Europe, Renee acquires inspiration from her ever changing surroundings to create beautiful contemporary art.
Now back home in Australia, Renee has formalised her studies by completing a four year Advanced Diploma in Fine Arts.
Renee has a great energy and enthusiasm for painting in a variety of different genres and mediums. The freedom of watercolour, the unlimited expanse in landscape and the curves of the human figure are all fundamental elements in the creation of her desirable artworks.
Looking to the natural beauty of her surrounding worlds, Renee captures the mood, harmony and rich palette of colours that effortlessly present themselves.

Renee will demonstrate how to paint these texture lillies.

This process involves the use of acrylic paint applied as you would a water colour background then texture paste applied with a palette knife to form the flowers, with highlights added to finish.

4th July Holly Eva Gay

Holly is a modern expressionist painter from Wollongong.

” I paint as if I’m seeing things for the first time. I lose myself in my imagination and escape to a place where I feel free. On goes the paint, rich in colour, twisting and turning in all directions, wiping, pressing, stamping, layering, drawing, writing words and smudging them out.”



Open House at the Coach House – 27th June:

A most productive day was had by all who came to our first open day. Kerry Suttonberg’s printing group were most enthusiastic. Thank you Kerry for coming to this open day.

27th June will be our next day and we look forward to the printers returning and anyone who would enjoy a quiet day painting and catching up on uncompleted work or launching into your entry for the annual exhibition.
