Gary is a Sydney artist and has been a finalist in numerous Art Awards such as the Adelaide Perry Drawing Prize, Dobell Drawing Prize, Kedumba Acquisitive Drawing Award, Doug Moran Portrait Prize and the Archibald Drawing Prize. He has a Batchelor of Visual Arts and an Associate Diploma of Fine Art. His work relates to landscape, not in the usual sense of copying nature, but the landscape our society creates. Memories too play a large part, as he attempts to evoke a sense of place in his work. The subject ranges from redundant mining areas, such as the old shale mine at Glenn Davis in the Capertee Valley, or the gold fields of Hill End, to the weathered terrace houses in the inner Sydney suburbs such as Balmain, with their layers of over-painting that suggest a nostalgia for a time gone, but not forgotten.
This is the last meeting for 2018 - please bring a plate of goodies for our Christmas festivities. There will also be a lucky chair prize.
