Forbes Art Society hosted another successful Art Exhibition in the Forbes Town Hall on Friday 23 October.
‘From Somewhere Down The Lachlan’ was an exhibition of works from two well-known local artists – Rosie Johnston and Jac Clark.
Rosie is an artist and award winning graphic designer who began painting seriously in her mid-30’s. She originally began working with water colours and smaller paintings before moving onto to much larger impressionist style pieces in bold strong acrylic colours for which she is now associated with.
Jac Clark is the owner of Morabon Print and Design in Parkes has been painting professionally since 2006. Her artworks are bold, vibrant portraits of animals and people. Jac had the privilege of painting Australian of the Year, Rosie Batty, and this painting was accepted into the Portia Geach Exhibition, Australia’s most prestigious art prize for portraiture by female artists.
Jac was also asked to paint popular local singer, Celia Pavey and received many accolades for her 2015 Archibald entry ‘Dr Karl, pose 5’. Both artists displayed more than twenty pieces each and organisers were pleased with the response to the exhibition launch on Friday evening. The exhibition is open for public viewing until Sunday 1st November.
