Bob Pelchen - On Walkabout with my Watercolours

Members Room Exhibition

No Opening

Artist Statement - Bob Pelchen

On Walkabout with my Watercolours

The exhibition will emphasise the vast contrasts I experience between the green rural landscape of my local Gippsland area and bustling Melbourne with the vast expanse, colours and structures of our beautiful outback Australia.

Some of the paintings are the result of a recent trip to Central Australia and a yearly 'walkabout' in North Queensland, while others are of a more local nature.

This body of work has been created by a group of artists under the tuition of Gwendoline Krumins at her Strathmore studio.
