Drawn – Waterfall Way Gallery Dorrigo
December 15, 2018 @ 10:00 am - December 31, 2018 @ 4:00 pmdonation
‘Drawn’ is an exhibition of works by Dorrigo artist Peter Mortimore is now on display at Waterfall Way Gallery, Dorrigo. The exhibition features monochromes in two media: oils on canvas and graphite on paper. Mortimore has a passion for equine art, landscape, and the Australian Bush, and ‘Drawn’ features portraits of horses, cattle, and game fowl. The ‘chooks’ are part of a commission to draw over 230 different breeds of fowl for a book publication. As anyone who has backyard hens knows, chooks have their own personalities, and these extraordinarily detailed drawings evoke both the characters of these feathered individuals and their fine plumage. Peter’s work is included in private and public collections internationally, and more of his work can be viewed next door at 59 Hickory Street, in The Peter Mortimore Gallery. Peter’s mother grew up in Dorrigo, and Peter and his wife Carolyn have recently returned to the Plateau. Carolyn runs the gallery and while, naturally, it features Peter’s works, it also includes an eclectic array of quality giftware, including silverware, clothing, jewellery, and leatherware.
