Ms McQuillan is an established artist from the Leeton area and has exhibited widely across the region. She is the founder of the Fivebough Studio, which became a meeting place of a core group of artists that became the genesis for the Leeton Art Society. Along with artists Penny Paniz, Jacqui Herrmann, Dee Cameron and Kylie McGuire, are known as the ‘Fivebough Friends.’
Griffith Regional Gallery Coordinator, Raymond Wholohan said Lynne’s arts practice is broad and she is adept in the traditions of landscape, figuration and still-life.
“Technically, Lynne is fluent with the application of acrylic paint, and mixed media, but her real strength is pastel work - anyone with an interest in landscape, figuration or still-life will find her work a visual luxury,” said Mr Wholohan.
“Lynne’s travels around Australia have increased her love of this country and its unique environments and feels compelled to express this love in her art.”
“The colours of our Country will always amaze and inspire me to try and capture its beauty and strength, light and vastness,” said Ms McQuillan. “This is what I’m wishing to capture in this exhibition.”
Mr Wholohan said it is a pleasure to bring Lynne’s artwork into ArtSpace this year and we wish her every success in her future artistic pursuits both locally and beyond.
“I urge anybody who is interested in painting and drawing to make time to view this visually rich exhibition,” he added.
The exhibition will be launched with an opening function on Friday 20 November at 6:30pm at Griffith Regional Theatre and all are welcome.
