"Slice of Life"
Cassie Swanson, and Trish Arden, two accomplished artists from Augathella and Tambo, are combining to present “A Slice of Life” at the Roma on Bungil Gallery, from Friday 8th May to Sunday 21st June. The opening night is 5.30 pm Friday 8th May, and everyone is invited.
Cassie Swanson is inspired by the softer visions she sees in her country, and portrays these beautifully with watercolour. Rainclouds and storms, children and flowers all capture her imagination. Recently she has embarked on a dance with acrylics, which has led her down a joyful path.Cassie paints with a gentleness and empathy, that belies the often harsh environment she lives in. She imbues her paintings with her own upbeat, positive personality.
Trish Arden is larger than life, and so are her paintings. Trish paints with gusto and verve. She handles acrylics, oils, and pastels with masterful aplomb. Her large floral paintings are her signature pieces, and are as colourful and full of life as the artist herself. Her life on the land has led her to escape into her art, where her passion for expressing herself in paint is the bonus for all of us.
With thanks to Santos GLNG and Maranoa Regional Council.
