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.
