ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
RIC ABEL: A finalist in the Blake Art Prize and the Archibald’s Salon des Refusés, Ric Abel travels through landscapes, skulls and quasi-cubist subjects. His art is introspective and exploratory, humorous and dark.

LILY CUMMINS: Lily Cummins is a tactile artist whose practice explores both her-self, her memories and the emotive bonds and attachments people develop to place. Cummins graduated from the National Art School in 2017 with a Masters of Fine Arts, and has exhibited in Australia and overseas.
CAT DOYLE: British-Australian artist Cat Doyle explores themes of loneliness and belonging with a particular interest in counterculture and literary circles. A Gateshead lass from North-east England, she now lives and works in the Southern Highlands NSW.
MARIA GORTON: Maria is a painter living and working on Gundungurra Land in the village of Robertson. Through her mediation practice and intuitive approach, she is attempting to create a response to the mysterious beauty of the eternal unseen. Maria has obtained a Bachelor of Fine Art, National Art School; a Master of Visual Arts and a Master of Studio Arts (Honours) at The University of Sydney.
LUCINDA MCDONALD: England Born Artist Lucinda McDonald's abstract, experimental paintings and sculptures continually strive to create balanced compositions, through the systematic, playful approach she takes with colour, line and shape.
