Pomona artists get exposure at Railway Station Gallery
AUSTRALIA and Abroad, featuring the works of local artists Natalie Barlow and Jeff Fraser, will open at the Pomona Railway Station Gallery on January 10.
Natalie will be exhibiting paintings in oil and watercolours of the Australia landscape and wildlife, as well as inspirations from her travels in Africa and India.
Jeff is a woodturner and spoonmaker. His bowls and spoons are an example of recycling a piece of old wood into something of great use and beauty.
Natalie moved to the Sunshine Coast four years ago after a hectic life as a graphic designer in Sydney.
While the paintings she is exhibiting are mainly from other parts of Australia, Natalie finds living in the hinterland inspiring and peaceful, motivating her to continue to paint the bush and birds that surround her.
Natalie and Jeff are members of the Pomona Gallery Artists and Friends Group.
They both find the group to be very nurturing and supportive in their artistic development.
Jeff and his wife, Lorraine, both belong to the Cooroora Woodworkers Club in Mill Station Place, Cooroy.
AUSTRALIA and Abroad will be officially opened on Saturday, January 10, at 2pm and continue until February 10.
