IAVA ARTISTS' TALKS AT THE GALLERY
Tony Hull and Kim Shannon
Saturday 14 November at 2.00pm
Tony Hull has had eight solo exhibitions, won numerous awards and prizes and his work is held in many private and corporate/ public collections. He has been an artist and teacher for nearly 40 years and received a Doctorate of Creative Arts from UOW in 1997. The major part of his practice is painting with watercolours and oils and his subject matter includes portraiture, studies of the human form, still life, and landscape which are often completed en plein air.
Kim Shannon lives and works in the Southern Highlands. She has exhibited widely in Australia and overseas, had 16 solo exhibitions and won several awards. Kim taught at TAFE and currently teaches at the Bowral and District Art Society and takes workshops in regional NSW. Still-life is her preferred genre and she enjoys finding beauty and meaning in the everyday through the medium of oil paint which has the potential to create such tactile and visceral surfaces.
