John Bokor, Ted Hillyer & Chris Hundt
Sawtell estuary by John Bokor
Works by three artists who are all at the very top of their game are the stars of the current exhibition at Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery, until Saturday 25 June 2016.
The fruits of the very first artist-in-residence funded entirely by the Friends of the Gallery will be the focus of artworks by Sydney-based, award-winning artist John Bokor.
Created over a four-week stay at Sawtell, locals and visitors alike will be enchanted with paintings and works on paper that capture the essence of the popular headland and estuaries.
Well-known regional artist Ted Hillyer is marking his 80th birthday with his new works on display at the Gallery.
He is considered a master painter and has mentored many of the region’s very best artists, who have gone on to forge important careers. Ted is represented by a Sydney commercial gallery and has work in many national and international collections.
Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery is just one of several that have seriously collected Ted’s work because of its beauty and because of his skilful rendition of ‘place’ in both a social and geographical sense.
Chris Hundt is the third artist exhibiting in this show. Chis has been painting her entire life and collectors of her work will not be disappointed with this show, curated to present facets of her work that have not been previously drawn together in one exhibition.
The show has been devised specifically to celebrate the rich diversity of her work and includes many new paintings.
