EXHIBITION – BURRAGORANG THE LOST VALLEY – Opening Sat. March 24th 2018
BURRAGORANG THE LOST VALLEY will be my next exhibition at Lost Bear Gallery – Lurline St. Katoomba – opening on Sat. March 24th 2018 and running until April 26th 2018. Renowned historian and author Jim Smith will officially perform the opening at 3,30pm. Few know more on the history of Burragorang than Jim. The exhibition will also coincide with the official BOOK LAUNCH of the book of the same name BURRAGORANG THE LOST VALLEY – a book filled with rare paintings of mine both recent and from my former visits along with other works. Bob Brown has kindly written the Foreword with an interesting introduction by Jim Smith.
Burragorang is the picturesque valley that was flooded in the 1950s to make way for a permanent water supply for the growing city of Sydney. What was once a thriving valley of guest houses, farms and other industries no longer exists and is now called Lake Burragorang. I have been fortunate enough to have had a very long history with this beautiful valley – a history I thought I had left behind 30 years ago. The story of my former involvement and how recent trips with Water NSW came about, is told in this book. Predominantly it is an Art book featuring exhibition images of my paintings and some from earlier times, along with other works of mine towards the back.
It has been a journey I never thought I would ever make again.
As the time draws a little nearer I will be adding more to this site,
