Current Exhibition

Fine pencil drawings of Sydney, the UK and Europe by Maurice Larkin

Drawing of Dawes Point and The Rocks by Maurice Larkin
Looking out to Dawes Point by Maurice Larkin

Maurice Larkin has been drawing from his early childhood in Liverpool, England.  He is self-taught and has been drawing and painting places that have inspired him on his extensive travels.  With his love of history and a good eye for a picture, Maurice is able to capture a moment in time in his drawings and paintings. This attention to detail is something that all lovers of fine art can appreciate.

Maurice likes to work from his sketchbook as well as his photos, and in doing so emphasises the fine details in his paintings and drawing.

Maurice will donate ten percent of the sale proceeds to the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Women’s Shelter.

The exhibition is on display from Monday 30 September to Thursday 31 October

The Natural World is an exhibition of vitreous enamel artwork by the Enamellers Association, a group that has been promoting vitreous enamelling expertise and appreciation for nearly 30 years. By applying intense heat to granulated glass, members create miniature works of art, thus preserving an ancient tradition that dates back nearly 3,000 years.

This exhibition explores members' responses to the natural world and highlights the diversity of enamelling techniques and artistic interpretation.

The Natural World is on display from Friday 1 November to Saturday 30 November
