The Tatura Guardian - - People -

Reign­ing Cats and Dogs is the ti­tle for Tatura mixed me­dia artist, Lynne Hume’s up­com­ing ex­hi­bi­tion at Kyabram Town Hall Gallery.

The ex­hi­bi­tion dis­plays new works from Ms Hume and is made up of 30 minia­ture paint­ings of cats and dogs and 34 pa­per and plas­ter sculp­tures.

Ms Hume said af­ter the loss of her hus­band she lost her de­sire to paint.

‘‘I was a con­tem­po­rary artist and worked with big can­vas nor­mally ev­ery day of the week, but this ex­hi­bi­tion I have kept it small and went back to the ba­sics, start­ing with cats and dogs,’’ she said.

Her Papil­lon dog, Renoir, pro­vided the in­spi­ra­tion for the show.

‘‘I know her with my eyes closed, and ev­ery­one knows her as ‘Renoir, the Princess Royal, from Papil­lon Palace’,’’ Ms Hume said.

En­joy­ing get­ting back into paint­ing Ms Hume said her last solo ex­hi­bi­tion was three years ago.

‘‘Minia­ture paint­ings is a new ven­ture for me as I nor­mally work in a large con­tem­po­rary for­mat, but I have en­joyed work­ing small and tra­di­tional for a change,’’ she said.

Cam­paspe Shire Deputy Mayor Vicki Neele will of­fi­cially open the show on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 8 at 2 pm .

‘‘Ev­ery­one is wel­come to come along and par­take in nib­bles while they view the works,’’ Ms Hume said.
