Artist Talk with Jo Besley, Jonathan Crowther & Jane Wilson

Primary tabs

Saturday, 19 August 2017 - 10:30am to 11:30am

Join Coffs Harbour Regional Museum and Gallery Curator, Jo Besley, and exhibiting artists, Jonathan Crowther and Jane Wilson for an informal talk and Q&A panel session.

Hear about the history of the Gallery’s collection of artworks, which pre-dates the Gallery itself, as Jo Besley highlights the importance of collections for regional art galleries.

Enjoy a lively discussion about the processes and techniques of Jonathan Crowther and Jane Wilson. Jonathan is a contemporary still life realist painter and winner of the Gallery’s 2015 Still Life Award. His current works investigate the relationship between the digital image and painting, exploring how we relate to objects around us through the intermediary of the screen. Jane Wilson explores the figurative subject using texture and layers of tone and colour. How our experiences of joy, confusion and loss are often written in our faces remains a preoccupation.

Bring your questions for this relaxed, informative session, chaired by Museum and Gallery Co-ordinator, Cath Fogarty.

This is a FREE event. Bookings essential.
