New era for Local Images


LOCAL Images Penola has entered a new era with artist Kathy Mabon taking over before Easter as the new artist in residence.

Kathy said she was looking forward to the upcoming Penola Coonawarra Arts Festival, and will launch the "new-look" gallery and festival exhibition at 2.30pm this Sunday, with nibbles and local wines.

"I plan to continue the tradition of showcasing artists from around the region and Australia at the gallery," Kathy said.

"Our Penola Coonawarra Festival artists this year are Vida Pearson with her extraordinary hand-painted lino prints, Jill Eckerman sharing her passion with watercolours and Julieanne and Peter Woodruff from Moorak pottery with an exciting array of creative pieces."
