The Friends Gallery

In early 2020, artists Euan Macleod and Ron McBurnie spent time in the Gallery’s Nancy Fairfax Artist in Residency Studio. During their residency, the artists worked en plein air both on the Gallery grounds and across the surrounding region. The aim of this residency was to develop a body of work for an exhibition in the Friends Gallery in March 2020.

Brunswick Sky - Cedar Jeffs
Friday 8 May 2020 to Sunday 5 July 2020
Macnaughton Focus Gallery and Kelly Wall

Cedar Jeffs is an emerging artist currently studying at the Byron School of Art, Mullumbimby. Her practice encompasses a range of mediums, with a focus on oil painting and drawing. Jeffs’ interest lies in exploring the traditional genres of portraiture and landscape within a contemporary context. Her prolonged act of painting allows her to extend these initial impulses into hours of quiet reflection, with the resulting painting a documentation of her experience.

In this series Brunswick Sky Jeffs has featured Brunswick Heads beach as her subject. Living in this coastal area she is constantly inspired by the subtlety of colour and changes in light.

An outcome of the Community Access Exhibitions Program.
