Tinkahill s debut exhibit
Tinkahill's debut exhibit

Two artists have returned to Dunsborough after a 12-year absence to exhibit their work and teach community art classes at Tinkahill, their new studio-gallery.

This weekend the Stuck on Red exhibition features the work of husband and wife duo, Su Berghuis-Garde in paint, charcoal and pencil with themes of transition, rites of passage and the interplay of nature and nurture. John Garde’s paintings include traditional oil landscapes which capture the beauty of light in the South West natural environment and a colourful series of romantic-style fish.

Garde said it was the first time the pair had moved back to a place after they had grown, as well as the town.

They said the time had just felt right.

“Dunsborough has cultural capital, people are well travelled, have seen art and have an awareness which they can expand upon when they visit the gallery or join a class,” he said.

The Tinkahill Studio on Clarke Street also offers life drawing sessions and quick portrait studies.
