Talent, talent and more talent.... and did I mention TALENT. The art emerging from local Gippsland Artists is astounding. Their works are varied and unique. Some of these Artists and Galleries include:
Kerrie is a real dynamo and produces paintings, ceramic pieces and design items.She has work in exhibitions all around the world and Australia and she is a great force in the community as well as being a very positive dynamic artist.
"My aim as an Abstract Expressionist is to bypass self-censoring thought; this allows me to be influenced by layers deeper than the surface. I enter the studio without a preconceived idea and over time have learnt to trust in the process itself and be guided by instinct." Kerrie Warren
Gary Miles is one of Australia`s most respected new breed of artist. An extremely prolific artist, he has produces an astounding 1200 paintings over the past thirty years.If you drop in Gary will not only bend your ear in the most friendly manner but also offer you a tea, coffee or wine!
