Charmaine captures local artists at work

AWARD-winning and published local photographer Charmaine Lyons will see her first solo exhibition come to life at Gympie Regional Gallery, officially opening on Saturday, November 21 at 6pm.

Her latest exhibition Artists of the Atelier has seen her travel around the Gympie region to photograph some of Gympie's artists.

Entering the studios of more than 20 artists she has used visual documentation to capture portraits of a diverse selection of some of Gympie's artists, at work and immersed in their chosen medium.

Charmaine said it had been a great privilege to be welcomed into the private worlds of these artists, to document their process and to capture the inner workings of the studios.

"An opportunity only a few will ever experience," she said.

So come and celebrate local talent at the Gympie Regional Gallery from 10 am-4pm Tuesday to Saturday. The exhibition will be on view until Saturday, January 2.
