This will become a place members can come to use Priscilla, our printing press, do a bit of peaceful Plein Air sketching, gather for workshops and more.

  • Inverell Art Prize 2021

    Member Liz Powell scoops 2nd at the Inverell Art Prize 2021

    Member Liz Powell won 2nd Prize in the Open Section of Inverell Art Prize run by Inverell Regional Art Gallery, for November 2021, with ‘Falling Down 1’ – drypoint etching, mono print and collage 50cm x 30cm

    Liz says ”
    The image is based on photographs I took on a field trip to Tenterfield Station organized by fellow Borderliner Louise Jenkins. It was an excellent opportunity to investigate the surrounds of the old homestead. I have garnered several works from my initial dry point etchings of the slab construction shed out the back.”

    AND! “I nearly didn’t put an entry into the exhibition!”

    CONGRATULATIONS LIZ!
