August 2018- Art gallery

Published: Monday, 13 August 2018

This month's artist is Rebecca Fullerton. The charcoal drawings of African animals and children were made as card designs to sell and support the 40 hour famine. A branch from World Vision, this mission strives to provide education, especially agriculturally, to families struggling to provide for themselves in developing countries.
The canvasses, Children of Light (acrylic), were created as part of my unit 3/4 studio art project. Looking heavenward and knowing Christ's redemption and salvation, this work intends to give hope to the weary, be it to children depicted as trafficed into slavery (a carrier, a soldier, a prostitute) or missionaries in third world countries striving to share the wonderful news of Jesus love.
May you find hope in Jesus Christ, the kingdom of heaven is near.

June Art Gallery - Andrew Suggett

ag 1We are privileged to display some of the artwork from local artist Andrew Suggett. Here's a little about him.

"I had enjoyed drawing in the distant past, (very intricate pen and ink drawings) but employment and other commitments took up most of my time.
Art took a backwards step! In 2001, I was diagnosed with Parkinsons Disease, and for many years I completely lost confidence in my ability to draw and paint.

About five years ago, my younger daughter Kathryn gave me a Christmas present of a wood burning kit.( A little like an electric soldering iron) Some time later I plugged the tool in and drew some small scenes and objects into three ply scraps of timber.

 I found that I was able to alter my style of drawing and painting to partly accommodate the effects of the Parkinson’s in my hands, and I continue to experiment with pen and wash and water colours.
I think that the style of my paintings is very much more casual than I was able to do earlier, and I am enjoying challenge.Painting and carving to me is purely a hobby, pastime I enjoy and I hope that I can continue painting for many years to come."
