‘Dig Deep for water, Tibooburra’, oil on canvas, by Betty Pearson
Betty Pearson is the immediate Past President of Gaara Arts Inc. (Gaara), the all women’s Broken Hill art group. Betty, who is now the Vice President of Gaara, does not have her own gallery but she is a keen artist nonetheless.
I met Betty in October 2012 at the time of the Gaara “Water, One Drop at a Time” exhibition which was held at the fabulous Town Hall Facade gallery space from 20 September to 21 October 2012.
The theme for the exhibition was inspired by national ‘Water Week’.
I really loved this painting by Betty.
‘From Eagles View’ intaglio etching and watercolour, by Deirdre Edwards
Deirdre Edwards is a prolific and talented former Broken Hill artist who had her own studio gallery until around 2015. She still visits Broken Hill regularly.
‘The art of Deirdre Edwards‘ website still running mid 2018.
Deirdre was a co-founder of the all women Broken Hill art group called ‘Gaara Arts Inc’ (Gaara). Gaara was established in 2008.
Deirdre also shares her artistic knowledge by holding art work-shops from time to time. I like her work, she is on my favourite Broken Hill artist’s list.
