HABITAT – an exhibition featuring the work of local artist Katrina Daly

A delightful exhibition opened on Friday night, 8 September, at the t.arts GALLERY in Bathurst featuring the work of four artists, including local artist Katrina Daly. Katrina’s works in oils and watercolours record her “very fortunate life at Napoleon Reef, everyday items, the fruit, flowers and herbs we grow and the animals and birds we share our garden with.” She also designed a tea towel which wonderfully captures the animals that share our nights. A great gift idea!

Also on exhibition are delightful prints by Judy Thatcher, the pastel landscapes of Greg Cross and the quirky ceramics of Emily Laszuk.

The exhibition continues until Friday 22 September.

Don’t miss it!
