The Shop7 art gallery will stage its annual “Harbour” exhibition at the Fishermen’s Wharf on the Bermagui harbour from Thursday, July 20 until August 9.
This is an exhibition open to all South Coast artists using any medium. This year’s entries include collaged wall pieces, paintings, sculptures, pottery and woodcraft.
The criteria for entrants is wide and includes any topic that presents the artists attitude to any meaning of the word “harbour”. The captivating views over Bermagui harbour with its boats of all kinds and its backdrop of Gulaga Mountain make it difficult to imagine other connotations of the word however.
Shop7 is Bermagui’s community gallery and most shop keepers in town offer sponsorship to an exhibiting artist of their choice by means of a gift voucher.
The exhibition will be opened to the public on Thursday evening, July 20 at 5.30pm. Everyone is invited to join the artists for a drink and a viewing then.
Pictured at her easel finishing her entry is Lyndal Jenkins, one of the Far South Coast’s successful visual artists. Lyndal has been painting and drawing all of her life.
She has exhibited many times in Bermagui and also in Melbourne and Perth. She has a diploma of Fine Art and Design from Claremont School of Art, Perth and more recently a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art and Visual Culture from Curtin University in Perth.
Lyndal is a regular exhibitor at Shop7 with another show in December. She will exhibit at Ivy Hill Gallery, Wapengo during the 2017/18 season and is part of the Four Winds Bermagui Project exhibiting at the ANU gallery foyer in October.
