Exhibiting from 20 September to 01 November 2015

Mutual admiration for one another's work with the medium of pastel propelled Murrurundi artist Jean Davies and Newcastle’s Rod Bathgate to begin The Journey, working to produce a body of works that capture the picturesque landscape of the Upper Hunter Region.

Rod’s fine detailed work exclusively in pastel on illustration board play with light bounced off clouds and reflected in the water, giving his works a very luminous and present feel. Jean on the other hand has produced a combination of works in ink, watercolour and pastel, challenging herself by approaching her work with less familiar processes and materials that reveal her intuitive artistic ability.

Exhibiting from 20 September to 1 November 2015. Opening night 6pm Saturday, 19 September 2015 with refreshments courtesy of Stone Hill Vineyard - Merriwa, Fordwich Estate, Artiste Espresso Bar, Hunter Belle Cheese and Pukara Estate.
