Frogs: A Disappearing Chorus Exhibition
27 January - 23 February
Art creates a powerful, visual message that resonates with people’s hearts.
Continuing the message that frogs in the Hunter continue to be under threat, is the aim of local artists Joyce Clulow, Angela Cowan, Annie Petrie, and Kate Eden to highlight the importance of frog conservation. Awareness of the disappearing frogs is embedded in their respective works, being shown in a group exhibition at the Hunter Wetlands art space. More than 25 artworks, in the current exhibition, help to promote this awareness through mixed mediums that include, acrylic, watercolour, charcoal and drawings.
Following the adage ‘you are never too old to paint’- this group of artists and long-time friends, represent a range of age groups.
Joyce 95 is a committed professional artist with decades of exhibitions to her name.
Annie’s in her 84 had a long career teaching art at university. Her love of line drawing continues today.
Angela 74 was a university lecturer who enjoyed printmaking as a lifelong leisure passion.
Kate 62 has spent time enjoying a love of mosaic and more recently painting with watercolour.
Although this group of friends have very different styles of painting and drawing, they are all equally passionate about their art.
