SIX Albany artists will display their interpretations of the Great Southern’s vast and varied landscapes in a two-week exhibition.

Zoe Butler, Jennifer Dul, Margaret Dowdell, Ros Jenke, Jennifer Hills and Julie Fletcher from Albany Outdoor Painters will exhibit at Albany’s Historic Whaling Station until October 11.

The group were drawn together through their love of outdoor painting and sketching, meeting weekly at different locations for inspiration.

Fletcher said the artists delight in discovering the natural beauty of the area and are always on the lookout for interesting and exciting places, historic buildings and undiscovered locations.

“All artists have exhibited a range of their extensive and varied works in Albany and throughout WA, are experienced and accomplished artists, and some have taught in their individual specialties,” she said.

The exhibited works will vary between watercolours, oil paintings, acrylic work and pastel creations.

The Albany Outdoor Painters Exhibition and Art Sale is open daily from 9am to 5pm during its exhibition time.
