Creative Arts Batemans Bay Inc. Our contribution.

Faced with ongoing COVID restrictions across NSW and the ACT, the River Of Art Festival couldn’t proceed with live events. The safety of our artists, community, visitors and supporters is paramount. Instead, we will showcase the Eurobodalla’s vibrant arts community online, taking artists and festival goers on a virtual journey.

Please call in to The Gallery and view the artwork created by CABBI artist’s.

A stunning place in the Budawang National park. I love the composition, describing the stillness of the water and the thirsty bushland as it hems the water. Milton Valley. Oil on canvas 122x91cms.

Trees through Time from a series of 5 acrylic paintings ( 900x600mm on board) that feature some tree species of our continent that have survived millions of years. The paintings are stylised to show leaves, trunks, fruit and flowers. Ancient Pines shows the Wollemi pine and the Celery Top pine, both are from early Gondwana around 110 mya.  Angophora and Eucalypts represents the flowering trees of Gondwana around 40-30 mya.
Sid Palazzi. After a decade of regular trips to the desert, I now find myself marooned by the seaside! Fish washed up on the sand bring to my mind saltpans and a long lost inland sea.

Nina Poulton.
Swaying In The Breeze Acrylic on rice paper. I liked the texture of the paper and it was more an experimental work to see how much paint the paper would take.  It started out as nothing in particular other than slapping paint on the surface, after which I looked at what shapes were in this work so I could enhance any objects or patterns which I invariably found as lily shapes  I started this at the end of June and only recently completed it.

Ian Camp. Woodcraft.
Audrey Warren
Ksana Gamaly. This beautiful lilac was blossoming every spring in the front yard of my house in Canberra. Unfortunately this lovely plant loves cold winter and I can’t grow it here. Sentimental memory- I was much younger back then.
This painting was created as a sum of different images which I wanted to work on: a spotted gum tree, a hill, a reflection. Finally I put them all together. Not sure that I can find such a place somewhere around, at least in a walking distance.
Laurie Phillips. Fractured acrylic on canvas 40x40cm Lockdown acrylic on canvas 1000x78cm Watching watercolour/gouache35x53 unframed

My inspiration comes from my surroundings and at the moment that’s in lockdown apart from my daily walk with my dog to Lilli Pilli beach.
Suzanne Shelley. Mixed media sculpture and Photopolymer etching.

Irene Harmsworth. “Going Home” which is a typical beach scene, although this painting I have attempted to capture the wind lifting up towels and it has the impression of the end of a day before going home.  oil painting on linen canvas.60cm x 76.
Robyn Green. Dare to Dream or Covid Vacation. Sunny Day, South Coast NSW.
Alarna Simms. Somewhere Bay and Still Life. Oil on board.
Judith Wilkins. Gums – was inspired by the gum trees growing in our back garden, and the view of the ocean and hills towards Moruya.
The second piece is Sam – He visits me nearly every afternoon to be hand fed or just to say hello. He’s a handsome boy; large with very bold plumage and an attitude to match.
Derek Lark. Woodcraft. A wide range of items come from his workshop including decorative boxes and serving boards and trays.  He continues to explore the options that nice timber presents and is always seeking out ideas for new projects.
