Artists to paint the streets of Glenlyon

The Glenlyon community will revive its art show with the Paint Glenlyon event this March.

The event will show off artists’ impressions of the landscape in and around Glenlyon.

Glenlyon Progress Assosciation will award one artwork with the Dee Waterhouse Memorial Art Prize. 

The award, in the name of the Glenlyon resident and artist, is a tribute to Ms Waterhouse’s work in bringing past art shows to Glenlyon.

Artist Frances Greenwood  is just one of the artists who will be taking part in Paint Glenlyon. 

She has lived in Wheatsheaf since 1998 and draws much of her artistic inspiration from nature and the profound experience of living in the forest. 

Ms Greenwood’s entry, a landscape of Glenlyon, took her a couple of months of adding layers until she completed it.

Paint Glenlyon will open on March 30, where prize winners will be announced.

Entries will be available for public viewing from March 31 to April 8.
