Wendy’s one-woman show coming up on mountain
PRESENTING a one person art exhibition is a lot of work, but for local Mt Buller and Mansfield artist Wendy Jagger her one-woman art exhibition is exciting.
‘Snowline’ will be presented from Saturday, August 8 to August 31 in the reception area of Alpine Central, Summit Road.
An official opening of the exhibition, which includes a variety of mediums and works, will be held from 5.30pm to 7.30pm on August 8.
Wendy said recently that putting together her exhibition she had to keep in mind what works in the snow and what doesn’t.
She loves working in oils but when painting in an alpine lodge the odours can become too strong so she works in glass paint and acrylics for many of her snow paintings.
However, it will possibly be her ceramics that will steal the show.
Wendy is renowned for her ‘fine ceramics’ that are translucent and beautifully etched with forest and mountain scenes.
Her studio in Mansfield is dotted with ceramic pieces in various stages of completion but all have distinct alpine themes – much the same as her paintings.
“I manage a lodge on Mt Buller over winter and can often be seen sitting on my ‘beach’ chair in the snow sketching and painting – I find it relaxing and inspiring,” she said.
Snowline exhibition is being supported by the Mt Buller Summer School, Mt Buller Mt Stirling Arts Council and the Arts Council of Mansfield.
All works are for sale.
