Local artist an inspiration

While our weather is usually pretty good at Easter time, this year was no exception with Good Friday (which is traditionally overcast) being a lovely sunny day.

So with glorious Easter weather and after family celebrations, Easter Sunday afternoon was an ideal time to go for a drive to Boyanup and visit Jalindia Orchard Gallery, where artist Kevan Collett was open for visitors. While Open Day was on Easter Saturday, the gallery was open throughout the Easter break and we enjoyed a stroll through the gallery and a glass of wine with Kevan.

In idyllic surroundings, Jalindia is an ideal place for an artist to live and work. Kevan had an array of paintings in watercolours, some acrylic and mixed media, as well as sculptures.


Also on display were some of the exotic art of Judi McGuigan, who is especially renowned for her nude creations – see below
