It’s that time of year again, time for the Southern Art & Craft Trail, featuring exhibitions across the Great Southern region of Western Australia.

This year I am participating in a group exhibition at Manyat Peak Gallery at the foot of the Porongurup Range.

This will be the first public showing of the still life paintings I’ve featured here over recent months. A few of the artists will be in attendance at various times during the exhibition which is open Wednesdays to Sundays, with a small opening get together at 5pm on Sunday 28 September.

I have also entered two paintings in the Plantagenet Art Prize, which opens next Friday evening and each day throughout the Trail.

If you’re in the region between September 26 and October 12, grab a copy of the directory from a visitor centre or gallery, or check details on the Trail website (download PDF brochure here), and take a look at the variety of work on offer.
