The members of the Lennox Arts Collective are proud to host Kaleidescope of Colour an exhibition by three emerging local artists – Robyn Day, Trish Tait and Michaela Murphy.

All three artists share a passion for life and a love of the Northern Rivers. They are inspired by its natural beauty and serenity, bringing diverse perspectives from living in this amazing part of the world.  These inspirations and interpretations, as well as their unique passion for colour is highlighted in this collection of works.

Every artist perceives the world through their own lens, and

Michaela sees the beauty of the world through colour.  Her work strives to be a celebration of life.

Having been inspired by the artist Henri Matisse, Michaela uses colour to convey different emotions and snapshots of life.  Michaela’s vivacious character is reflected in her work, with her carefree fun-loving pieces, and using acrylics as her medium.

‘I choose subject matter that I feel convey a story, I want the viewer to feel something when they see my work. My art gives me great joy and is integral to my life,’ she said.

Trish considers herself to be one of the lucky people who has discovered a passion for art… even if it came a little later in life.  Having lived in Western Queensland for over 40 years, it wasn’t until moving to the Northern Rivers that she discovered her new favourite hobby.  She has a keen interest in watercolours and enjoys creating vibrant colourful pieces, in particular detailed flowers.

Robyn resides in Lennox Head and has enjoyed painting for many years. She paints in her studio looking out at the ocean – tucked away in her “happy place”.

Inspired by a Cubism Art Course at the Brisbane Institute of Art she gradually found a style that spoke to her, and she continues to develop her passion for bright colours and intricate detail.

‘Kaleidescope of Colour’ opens Friday 10th November from 5:30pm, and continues until the 23rd November 2017 at the Lennox Arts Collective gallery, 2/72 Ballina Street, Lennox Head.
