A Niland Art Exhibition

I've been busy the last couple of months sorting, painting and framing many of my works to be exhibited alongside my sister Kilmeny's fabulous array of her own paintings from her art collection.

This exhibition is presented as a tribute to Kilmeny's lifelong interest in art and will be held at the Artarmon Galleries in Sydney from the 6th to the 23rd October, 2012.

There will be a wide variety of artwork on show and for sale: original illustrations from books, oil paintings, watercolours, ink, humorous paintings, serious paintings, enigmatic paintings, portraits of people and portraits of fruit. There will be a scattering of hippos, monkeys and cows, dogs and cats, but no pigs.
You'll see big paintings and tiny paintings.

Come and visit the gallery if you are interested in book illustration and painting. Kilmeny has left a beautiful legacy.

Some more paintings on show from the exhibition.

How great it would be to see your showing and your tribute to your sister. A wonderful thing for you to do. So many emotions for you and many cherished memories.

You are right in that it is an emotional experience. On the one hand, it is a delight to see so many of her works in one place, and on the other hand, realising there will be no more of her paintings produced to look forward to.

But...in every viewing, I'm sure you see something new. :)
