The diverse and colourful works of a highly-acclaimed South West artist will be the first to be exhibited in a newly appointed space at the Lighthouse Beach Resort.
Joyce Hatchett will exhibit a collection of some of her best works – and some fresh off the easel – for a two-week show from Friday night.
Mrs Hatchett said the exhibition would include a diverse range of art which did not conform to one style.
“It will go from traditional through to contemporary right through to abstract,” she said.
“There’s a nude called Tastefully Confronting – some will be able to handle it, some won’t.”
The exhibition will include some Gallipoli-themed pieces, her Kiss Cow Moosic Mania work and a portrait of her mother, who died two years ago.
A portrait of a mystery prominent Bunbury figure will also be unveiled at the show’s opening.
Mrs Hatchett said she hoped people would be inspired by her work.
“Because my work is so diverse, people aren’t going to like everything but I guarantee they will like at least one,” she said.
“If they’re budding artists I hope it inspires them to go further with their work.”
The exhibition is the first to be held in the renovated Carnegie Room at the Lighthouse Beach Resort.
The exhibition opens on Friday from 6.30pm. RSVP by calling Laurelle at the Lighthouse Beach Resort on 9781 2700.
It will be open 10am to 3pm daily until December 14.Entry is free.
