She said it has been an interesting and rewarding journey, full of challenges and fulfilment.

Marlene tackles all subjects but loves most of all painting Nambucca scenes.

There will be a morning tea in the Stringer Gallery to launch Marlene’s ‘Creative Moments, Art for Refugees’ exhibition on Tuesday 2 May from 10.00am.

All the proceeds from the sales of Marlene’s art works in the exhibition will be donated to the Asylum Seekers Centre (ASC) in Newtown.

The ASC supports asylum seekers in the Sydney area by providing meals, food parcels, help with school equipment, legal advice and more.

The Gallery is also opening its Themed Exhibition, open to all artists, titled ‘Comedy in Art’.

The Gallery, now part of the new Learning and Cultural precinct in Nambucca Heads, is open from Monday to Friday from 10.00 am until 3.00 pm, and on Saturday from 9.30 am until 12.00 noon.
