David Lane

David Lane is best known for his vibrant and colourful seascapes, however his ability to capture colour and light in his subjects is also reflected in his delightful landscapes and still lifes. 

David holds an exhibition of new work and a studio sale at his studio gallery in Tintenbar each year in December. His annual exhibition has become a local icon, and organisers say that this year’s show won’t disappoint. The exhibition offers visitors an opportunity to enjoy his vibrant and colourful paintings in his garden setting and to chat to David about his work. 

If you visit David’s exhibition this year you are in for a special treat with his exhibition including a range of stunning reflections from his recent travels in the Northern Territory and East Kimberlys. His love of our local beaches does, however, continue to dominate his work with some spectacular ocean views, including his signature work Surfers’ Track.   

While David will have a full range of new paintings for sale, he also has several pieces available in his studio sale. All visitors are welcome to enjoy his work and to enjoy his much-loved garden. 

David’s studio gallery is at 31 Fernleigh Road, Tintenbar in northern New South Wales. The gallery is easy to find, just off the motorway, 10 minutes’ North of Ballina and 20 minutes’ from Byron Bay. 

The event opens Saturday and Sunday, 3–4 December at David’s Studio Gallery then daily from Thursday 8 December until Sunday 11 December. Opening hours are 11am–5pm.

For more information and to view a selection of his work please visit David’s website www.davidlane.com.au.
