Meryl Miller of the Port Stephens Community Arts Centre told News Of The Area, “Art has always been one of Robyn’s passions.”

Robyn started her artistic career with a scholarship to East Sydney Technical College where she studied Commercial Art and Commercial Illustration.

Robyn has also worked in art related roles in both Sydney and Muswellbrook spanning an incredible 30 years.

Robyn retired to Anna Bay in 1997 and joined the Port Stephens Community Arts Centre, The Newcastle Society of Artists and Maitland Regional Society of Artists.

“Robyn has won multiple awards in art competitions and her work is represented in many private collections as well as, The Newcastle Permanent Collection, The Max Watters Collection and featured in Australian Artist magazine,” Meryl said.

Robyn’s current painting direction presently lies in developing “Plein Air” skills and Portraiture and after a long association with life drawing groups she continues to enjoy the opportunity to enhance her drawing skills.

Alongside Robyn’s work the gallery has another exhibition running from 9 June – 27 July, in which visitors can experience “What’s On Your Plate?”

There is also a feature of pastels on display.

Known for their brilliant colors and its delicate, velvety texture, pastel is one of the most versatile and beautiful materials in the history of art.

“Our pastels artists will have a variety of works demonstrating the beauty of pastel medium,” she said.

Admission to the Gallery is free and the gallery is open 10am – 4 pm daily and closes at 1pm on Sundays.

The Garden café is open on Saturdays from 10 – 2pm and you can redeem your Dine and Discover Vouchers within the Café.

You can also redeem your Discover vouchers which are accepted as part payment within the Gallery.
