Kathleen Bentley Exhibition - Opening

Kathleen Bentley’s Exhibition – Tasmania Island of Dreams

Some excerpts from Alwyn Friedersdorff’s Official Opening of the Exhibition:
As a community group, ArtsCape has a huge commitment to the arts, in particular to our local artists, but we are also happy to make friends and influence people from all over our wonderful North west coast!

For that reason, we warmly welcome Kathleen Bentley with her appealing predominantly pastel works. As a pastel artist, Kathleen has studied under June Wilson, who on Friday evening was announced the winner of the Central Coast Council Award at the annual ArtEx and she has also studied with our friend and water colour artist, Evelyn Antonysen.

Kathleen has commented in her Artist Statement that changing light both fascinates and challenges her. You can be stunned by the evidence of this in her work.........

Through Kathleen’s other delight, her animal series, she has captured personality and character through their eyes. I am no cat lover but “Cindy” is instantly mystical, dominant and definitely here to stay!.....

So, congratulations on your first solo art exhibition!
It is a big deal and an important milestone as another step along the path of establishing your career and reputation as an artist............

Please try and pop in to ArsCape in our viewing times to have a look at this lovely exhibition.
