LAY-BY: Over the last 30 years we have run a no cost lay-by program which allows you to buy at today's prices as historically, the artist's works are rising every year. This facility we offer is very popular and accounts for many sales. Just ask us the details at the show.



DAVID BRAYSHAW has been chosen by the ‘Rainforest to Reef’ nationwide campaign with the Rainforest Rescue and Great Barrier Reef Legacy organisation. His incredible paintings of the Reef are helping to generate awareness throughout the world as well as fundraising for important research into saving our coral reef. He has won many awards and his works are now sold across the world


WERNER FILIPICH since Werner and Helen sold their business he is enjoying painting at a more relaxed pace and travelling to find new and exciting subjects to capture on canvas. This new found enthusiasm is definitely showing in his work and you will be amazed at the quality and variety of his works for this show. Werner is an important artist for collectors. My advice is buy one now


JOHN BRADLEY is painting extremely well and has experienced huge demand for his steam locomotive paintings. He has produced 2 of these wonderful and historical works for this show. He will have his prestige 2018 Calendar available. His work continues to be licensed overseas and a range of Jigsaws puzzles depicting his work has been released.


MAX MANNIX is working so well at the moment and he has produced some incredible paintings for this show. I believe he is one of the most collectable artists in Australia today with some of Max’s paintings achieving higher prices on auction sites, than we sell them for. These low prices won’t last! Come along and wish him Happy Birthday

RICHARD BOGUSZ has managed to paint a few paintings this year and they are fantastic. They won’t last long.


JOHN VANDER’S health hasn’t been that great this year and he is painting a lot slower which shows in the remarkable detail in his works for this show. He has a great selection of works I am sure you will enjoy, but you will need to be quick to own one.


IAN HANSEN Has done it again! Winning the ‘Award of Excellence’ for his painting of the Dreadnaught at the international Marine awards night in the USA (16 x 12 original study of the award winning painting will be available for sale at this show) Australia Post has also used a painting of Ian’s in its new set of Shipwreck stamps. 2 studies of the painting used will also be available at the show. Ian was presented with the presidents medal by at the Australian Society of Marine Artists only last week. no doubt he is the world’s top marine artist


JAMES HOUGH was invited to exhibit in the annual ‘International Artists magazine Wildlife art competition”. He was awarded 3rd place overall in the world for 2017. This painting was featured in the edition of ‘International Artist Magazine’ and an article on James artworks featured as well in American Art Collector magazine’. James is now recognised as one of the greats in the wildlife art world. Well Done!


PAUL MARGOCSY. Has been working steadily and Cheryl and I  would be proud to hang any of them! We can see why wildlife groups praise his work and give him critical acclaim and acknowledge him to be Australia’s best Birdlife artist


HELEN COTTEL We are really excited that Helen is exhibiting her works again this year. She is one of the most talented watercolourists in Australia today and has been showing regularly with us. Her new umbrella series for this show abound with life and colour and excitement along with a range of subjects and styles. She is a fresh and vibrant talent.


RAMON WARD-THOMPSON travelled specially to New York to paint and you will be amazed, as I was with his works of Central Park. He really is an talented artist and his romantic series of distant cities brings back wonderful holiday memories to Cheryl and I


OTTO KUSTER Has great work for this show! I congratulated Otto on the wide variety and undoubted quality of his new pieces, from the rocks to the bush and of course his acclaimed nudes. Otto, with his palette knife and paints shows us all ‘how it’s done’


FINALLY Cheryl and I extend our deep appreciation to you our clients and friends who have supported our shows. All of our artists are experiencing great sales and we are all excited at coming back to Carnarvon to have a few nibbles and drinks with you all. Remember you are all Invited. Kevin
