‘Nature Inspires’ by Margaret Fortey
Nature Inspires by Margaret Fortey
Opens 09 May 2015 at 2 pm, till 21 May.
Call in and have a drink with the artist. Margaret will be in the gallery on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday this week. She is also hosting an afternoon tea on Saturday (16th May) with a painting demo.
Margaret Fortey is a painter, printmaker and sculptor – three modes of creative practice that capture her love of natural beauty and quirkiness of spirit.
With a unique technique of painting on silk, Margaret has discovered a challenging, but very effective way of bringing to life the brilliant colours, deep reflections and subtleness of the Australian landscape. In a world often preoccupied with materialism, it is Margaret’s desire to reawaken in people an awareness of the simple beauty of our natural surroundings and the pleasures and rewards that come from nature.
