We are also lucky to have a number of places where these artists can showcase their works.

In the lead up to the Easter look weekend, a group of artists has been given the opportunity to display their works at the Tea Gardens Hotel.

Janette Coppock from the Myall Art and and Craft group said, “This is the first of what is hoped to be a regular event, adding to the many and varied opportunities for locals and visitors alike to view, appreciate and purchase art works by local artists.”

The exhibition will comprise the works of four artists.

Rudy Jacobs is the artist and organiser of the event and he’ll be joined by Jennifer Street, Joan Richards and Clare Yates.

Jennifer Street is well known locally for her beautiful works in watercolour.

“Since moving to Tea Gardens in 2014 to be closer to her parents, Jennifer’s love of art and nature has inspired her and her passion for watercolour shows in her technique and the intricate detail of her work,” Janette said.

“Joan Richards is another well known local artist, who enjoys working with oil and has developed her own distinctive style that is instantly recognisable.”

“Joan has been painting our beautiful beaches, river and bush scenes since moving here 20 years ago and is proud to now call herself a “local”.

Clare Yates works mostly in pencil and watercolour to create beautifully detailed work, drawing inspiration from her travels around Australia.

Clare has lived in Tea Gardens for 10 years and is enjoying being part of a very active and supportive local art group.

And finally, Rudy Jacobs is an oil painter who has been painting in earnest since retiring to Tea Gardens in 2017.

His early works include scenes from inland Australia, but now he has turned his attention to the beautiful Myall area with beach and river scenes.

The newest arrival to our local art community, Rudy is full of enthusiasm and is the driving force in this new exhibition.

The exhibition, with at least one of the artists in attendance, will run from Sunday 14 April to Friday 19 April, between the hours of 10am to 5pm.
