Two long-time friends have teamed up for an ex­hi­bi­tion at Atwell Gallery.

TWO long-time friends have teamed up for an ex­hi­bi­tion at Atwell Gallery dur­ing Novem­ber.

Ardross res­i­dent Bev John­son and South Lake res­i­dent Pam Lock­wood have been in­volved in mul­ti­ple arts so­ci­eties to­gether for more than 15 years.

Cap­tur­ing the Light is their first ex­hi­bi­tion as a duo and it fea­tures Aus­tralian-themed wa­ter­colours and acrylics.

Mrs Lock­wood said the idea of work­ing to­gether came as their styles com­ple­mented each other.

“There are lots of flow­ers and WA land­scapes,” she said.

Mrs John­son said the ex­hi­bi­tion recog­nised the beauty of the state.

“Water­colour paint­ings are al­ways a chal­lenge be­cause you don’t know what re­sults you are go­ing to get,” she said.

The duo will present a talk and demon­stra­tion on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 7, from noon to 2pm.

Mrs John­son won first prize for wa­ter­colours at the Al­fred Cove Art So­ci­ety’s An­nual Awards of Ex­cel­lence Ex­hi­bi­tion, which ran ear­lier this year.

Atwell Gallery is open daily from 10am to 5pm.
