Heritage House Bangalow Easter Art Exhibition
Bangalow Heritage House has daringly intermingled contemporary paintings of local relevance with its history collection. The costumes and tools of Bangalow’s settlers are displayed mixed together with paintings of the environment, fruit and vegetables, flowers and even cakes.
The artworks are by two well-known local artists Karena Wynn-Moylan and Simon Harriot. Both artists are presenting works that are of Bangalow – Simon Harriot will be displaying colour field landscapes while Karena Wynn-Moylan shows a collection of small to medium sized works inspired by Bangalow’s produce and scenes.
This colourful exhibition will be open Tuesday to Sunday until May 4th. 10am-4pm with a percentage of the profits going towards the Museum.
Simon Harriot uses colour and abstract expressionism to document the landscape of the
northern rivers. The common thread that connects all his paintings is a strong and intense colour
palette used to analyse and gain an alternative appreciation of the natural beauty of the landscape.
His work is connected through colour using harmonious or discordant palettes into layers or blocks of colour and transposes the elements of the environment onto canvas, with vitality and rhythm.
Karena Wynn-Moylan is an award winning artist whose career has spanned a range of media and a
wide variety of subjects. Each week she produces and presents the popular Arts Canvass show on
Bay FM 99.9 and is also a noted composer and songwriter. Equally adept at watercolour, oils or
acrylics her beautiful draughtsmanship shines through all her subjects. She is currently preparing
her 14th solo show for the future, but in the meantime has been busy on a range of side projects to
do with food, flowers and Farmer’s Markets which can be seen at this exhibition.
This colourful show will open at 4pm on Saturday April 4 th at the Heritage Museum and will run for 4 weeks. Naturally there will be lots of lovely food and drinks available at the opening !
The exhibition will be open Tuesday to Sunday , 10am-4pm with a percentage of the profits going
