Steve and Chris have been travelling around Australia a fair bit recently

In mid-December we headed off across the Nullarbor travelling through the Southern Flinders ranges, Clare and Barossa Valleys and down the Coorong in South Australia and the Great Ocean Road in Victoria before taking our camper across Bass Strait on the Spirit of Tasmania.

We loved Tasmania! We were only there for 8 nights but saw a fair bit of the State and certainly hope to go back for a longer trip some time.

On the return journey we went up through Central Victoria and then along the Murray Valley before heading back West.

We arrived home in early January then headed off again for 5 days over the Australia Day long weekend - this time we based ourselves in Hopetoun on the stunning South East coast of WA. We had a relaxing few days exploring the Eastern end of the Fitzgerald River National Park as well as the coast to Esperance including Stokes Inlet National Park.

 We're working on our trip reports with photos .... watch this space

3-September-2012  Hidden Depths Exhibition

Chris Marshall is one of 6 artists involved in the Hidden Depths Exhibition curated by Margaret Coxall on display at Atwell Gallery from September 3 - 9, 2012.

“For an artwork to intrigue the viewer it must do more than represent the surface appearance of subject matter, but needs to delve deeper. This exhibition will explore the idea of depths and layers that artists use to create works that are meaningful.  Transparent veils, overlaying images, opaque passages all techniques that the artist can use to mystify and at the same time reveal.”

 Margaret Coxall, Guest Curator

We have been setting up the exhibition today and the gallery looks great. We are having a "Meet the Artists" event from 2 - 4 on Sunday, Sep 9 - see you there!

6-June-2012  Karijini

We are just back from a few days in and around Karijini National Park in the Pilbara region of WA.  Wow, what a place.  The scenery is quite difficult to capture photographically, as most of the gorges are deep and steep cracks in a generally flat landscape, so there can be enormous contrast between the well-lit parts and the parts in shade. Chris can feel some artworks coming on...

There is still a lot we have not seen, so we will definitely visit Karijini again.
