FLEETING MOMENTS & ESSENCE OF NATURE

Plein-Air-4
FLEETING MOMENTS  by Helen Anderson and Sally D'Orsogna

Watercolour paintings by Helen Anderson. "The garden is alive with fleeting moments. Drawing and painting makes me stop, look and wonder at the ebb and flow of life all around me."

Cyanotype photographic prints by Sally D'Orsogna. "The world of cyanotypes opened up to me over the Covid years. I found myself immersed more and more in my garden. The cameraless photographic process of Cyanotypes gave me a pathway into celebrating my domestic garden as a place of solace."

ESSENCE OF NATURE  by the West Gippsland Plein-Air Artist collective - Jenni Chandler, Lynnette Coade, Dee Ross, Helen Timbury and Janine Wallace

En Plein-Air art in its strictest sense is a practice of creating art in a painterly or an illustrative way drawn upon a natural setting. In this current exhibition, each artist has a different creative approach to the environment in which they find themselves.
