I was delighted to chat to local Broken Hill artist Karrie Lannstrom earlier in the week on my recent visit to Broken Hill.
Karrie is a member of Gaara Arts Inc (Gaara). She is a hobbyist artist and has never been a professional artist although from the work I’ve seen so far, she certainly could be.
Karrie is also a committee member of the Broken Hill Art Advisory Committee. Her work has been exhibited in the annual Lifeline exhibition in Broken Hill for a number of years.
Karrie has held a solo show of 22 pieces at the Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery in October 2010. The title of that exhibition was “Dust to Rust – Impressions of the Hill”. There is a piece of her work (from that exhibition) available for purchase at the Regional Art Gallery right now ‘. It’s a lovely piece and is titled ‘Sturt Peas Dancing Late @ Night in the Hill’.
If I had a gallery, which I might one day, I would love to represent Karrie’s beautiful rich textured works.
