Jeetho inspires art
WITH a focus on local landscapes, Coal Creek’s latest art exhibition titled Jeetho: a living contrast was opened last Saturday.
Featuring a collection of paintings and ink artworks by artist Sarah Reark, the exhibition is a direct response to the constant impeding weather systems and their effect on the surrounding Jeetho landscape, particular during the winter months of last year.
The exhibition was opened by Korumburra and District Historical Society president Shirley Holland on behalf of Doug Boston, who unfortunately couldn’t attend the opening.
Ms Holland spoke of Jeetho’s history, giving the audience an interesting account on the former days of the region.
Reark’s rich oil on linen paintings and small brush and ink drawings speak of a landscape still in time, but rich in history.
Jeetho: a living contrast will remain on display at the Coal Creek Community Gallery, Korumburra, until the end of January.
