Artists mix it up

FOUR Albany artists have set up camp at a local tourist attraction to display their latest collection of watercolour and acrylic paintings.

Collective Mix features the work of Zoe Butler, Ros Jenke, Margaret Dowdell and Julie Fletcher and ranges from still life to flora and fauna and landscapes.

Fletcher and Butler said the exhibition, installed at Albany’s Historic Whaling Station ahead of a Saturday afternoon opening, included all of the artists’ favourites.

“We’ve been learning about how important friends are to the creative process,” Butler said.

“We all help each other, support each other and learn from each other.

“It’s been really good.”

Fletcher said the exhibition predominantly had small-sized artworks for sale, so as to be more convenient to tourists, taking up less room in their luggage.

It’s free to enter the exhibition once it opens at 2pm on January 11 and it will remain open daily from 9am to 5pm until it closes on February 9.
