TUESDAY, 1st AUGUST: HOLLY  EVA  GAY – DEMONSTRATION Come and join Holly at the Coach House for an afternoon of inspiration. 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.”     Demonstration begins at 1.00pm so please be seated before then and stay  for afternoon tea and a chat at the conclusion of the demonstration.

She now has a passion for exploring experimental techniques in both composition, layering, texture and imagery to create dynamic and unique works of art. The freedom of fluid acrylics, collage, stenciling and stamping gives her the freedom to play with unlimited possibilities. Faith has exhibited and hung in the Wollongong City Gallery, Project Contemporary Artspace, Juanits Gallery in Austinmer. She has also been selected and hung in the Fishers Ghost Festival, Thirroul Seaside Arts Festival, Waverly Art Prize to name a few.
