Jacqui has two large canvasses on display which she uses as a backdrop to her photographs. These canvasses are done in the colonial style - indeed one is a blow up of a colonial age painting of Mount Wellington. Her photographs are recreations of possible situations both past and present - all seem to relate to historic local myths. The Kelly Family and their relatives are both either on display or referred to. Particular reference is made in a general sense to the role of women in these widely held local myths.
The exhibition as a whole is quite thought provoking. Bravo Jacqui.
In the Simpson Gallery there is an exhibition of Pastel works by Jennifer Paul. These are drawings of a high standard and well worth a viewing.
Jennifer will be giving a talk on Saturday 26th November about her work on display and I would recommend attendance.
