Friday 2 June 5.00 pm
with Therese Shanley
Therese’s beautiful art works are recognisable in many exhibition display settings around the region.
Her works are predominately about people, places and objects that surround her and that are important to her for inspiration. She often draws on objects from her memory and on things that give her a feeling of nostalgia.
Therese enjoys the beauty and the simplicity in many day-to-day doings, and enjoys using patterns and nature in her works to convey these feelings.

Our talk with
A riveting talk delivered by H. Fish in March 2020 took us on a journey along the path of humankind’s artistic and social evolution. He reflected on the level of creativity and awareness expressed in works unearthed in recent times. We marvel at the findings, their being, their consciousness, their legacy. We are moved and inspired to our own creativity in present times.
