The very first Featured Artist and Artisan in the new TAG Gallery is Jenny Crozier.
Jenny is an outstanding local artist who has won over 100 awards.
She was instrumental in setting up the Tilligerry Arts Group many years ago, and is also the brainchild behind the Jenny Crozier Fantastic Fakes Exhibition, which will take place over the June Long Weekend in 2018.
Jenny’s artistic talent was evident at a very early age; she was always drawing and painting.
Recognising her potential, her parents enrolled her with the Parramatta Art Society where she studied tone and composition.
Her first exhibited work was shown at the age of twelve.
As an adult, Jenny worked as a ticket writer and illustrator in her chosen career.
Later Jenny moved to Noosa, where she continued her artistic skills and won her first award.
Wishing to pass on her knowledge and passion for art, Jenny began classes for children and adults.
Over the ensuing years Jenny’s work has won a total of 100 awards, 58 of which were achieved in the Newcastle area.
Most recently, her works were awarded in four categories at the Tilligerry Art Festival and 1st prize Major Award in the Raymond Terrace Art Show.
Not surprisingly, Jenny’s work is much in demand and is displayed in many private and corporate collections in Australia and overseas.
Jenny’s philosophy towards art is “Always paint with a sense of fun.”
Di Stubbs from TAG told News Of The Area, “We are so pleased to be able to present this exhibition for the public to enjoy.”
“Jenny’s artistic talent is certainly something that needs to be shared, and enjoyed by all.”
The exhibition of her work will continue until Sunday 4 February 2018.
Head over to the brand new TAG Gallery, if you can, and enjoy her talent!
