Artist to hold ex­hi­bi­tion at place close to heart

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Food -

TRESILLIAN Arts Cen­tre in Ned­lands is a spe­cial place for artist Valerie Glover, and not just for its ex­hi­bi­tion space.

When Glover was a teenager, a doc­tor at the for­mer Tresillian hospi- tal di­ag­nosed her with ap­pen­dici­tis and rushed her in for an emer­gency op­er­a­tion.

So nat­u­rally, when Glover de­cided to hold ex­hi­bi­tion Lit­tleBitLongWay, she thought of Tresillian.

“It is an ideal place with very good mem­o­ries for me,” Glover said.

Lit­tle Bit Long Way show­cases 85 paint­ings in oils, acrylics and mixed me­dia.

Glover said she was pas­sion­ate about cre­at­ing art that evoked mem­o­ries of places and land­scapes she had seen.

“I en­joy the chal­lenge of com­bin­ing the­ory with the prac­tice of art,” she said.

“Be it the thrill of cap­tured light or the power of pri­mary and blended colours.” Lit­tleBitLongWay is show­ing at Tresillian Arts Cen­tre, 21 Tyrell Street, Ned­lands from Fri­day, Septem­ber 19 to Sun­day, Septem­ber 28.
