Two outstanding exhibitions will begin the new year at the Pomona Railway Gallery in the Carriage Room and the Banana Shed.
Pam Taylor will be displaying ’A Walk in the Park’ in the Carriage Room, with paintings that are full of colour, reflecting her determination to heal.
“This exhibition is a visual story about my journey during and after knee surgery that I went through almost two years ago to replace both my knees,“ Pam said.
“The recovery was not a walk in the park, but I eventually did walk on the beautiful new boardwalk from Noosa Beach to Noosa National Park, almost, with determination, this was my aim and what I was working towards.
“This same walk I have since taken several times, but one evening at sunset, I was entranced by the colour reflections of the trees and shadows cast from the foliage and architectural structures of the timber and steel handrails.“
’A Walk In the Park’ runs from Friday 5 February to 4 March, with the Official opening on Saturday 6 February at 10 Station Street, Pomona.
In the Banana Shed, Julie Hempsell is exhibiting exquisite photographs of nature in her exhibition ’Getting Close to Nature’ from 29 January to 25 February.
“After my son bought me a camera a couple of years ago I became interested in taking nature photos,“ Julie said.
“Growing up in Cootharaba on the Sunshine Coast I was surrounded by nature and wildlife and that’s what I like to photograph.
“I want to share my photography with everyone and living at East Deep Creek now, I am taking a lot of bird photography and looking closer into the garden by taking macro photos as well.“
The Gallery is open seven days a week offering a large range of handmade works and original paintings. For more details visit www.pomonartgallery.com
