People's Choice winner

The People's Choice winner "Sunset Over The Vineyard" by Robert Keen, executed superbly in his signature pastels media, has been photographed. But please forgive me as it is framed under glass I did my best to photograph it then I did my best to get rid of reflections but it is nowhere near as beautiful in my photo as it is in real life.
So do take the time to come to the Barracks and feast your eyes on the sumptuous colour, fabulous composition and the mastery of pastel that Robert has.

Winner of People's Choice 'Terroir' landscape exhibition announced

The winner of our People's Choice for the 'Terroir' landscape exhibition was announced and awarded a certificate and a cheque for $100 at our last social meeting.
My apologies for not writing sooner but life intervened....

Robert Keen was the artist our visitors loved the most and it is easy to see why. He did a beautiful landscape for the exhibition in the Gore gallery. A gorgeous sky..... sorry.... I don't have a photo to show off....I'll take one tomorrow and post it asap.
It was delightful to see our Robert so happy!

We counted over 300 votes and he pipped us all, but it also shows how many people come and see our art. Possibly over that number as not everyone voted and some did not quite understand that they had to put the number 1 only once ☝  maybe they just loved too many 👍

Water for Life International Art Exhibition 2018


My name is Joy Engelman and I am one of the CCC artists with a studio at the Barracks in Orange NSW.

Here is an introduction to the "Water for Life" Exhibition in which I will be representing Australia next year.

My work will feature the dryness of our landscape, the great outback areas.... Oz is the driest island/continent on earth and our underwater aquifers are very very precious! I hope my work helps raise the consciousness of people and helps to make fresh water an important issue all around the world.
