Jeff Makin's fantastic exhibition "The Journey" features in today's issue of the Herald Sun (Wednesday 18th of August) in a Q&A with features writer Simon Plant. Pick up a copy for this intriguing discussion that ranges from the hazards of painting outdoors (ie battling the elements... and bands of bikies!) to establishing his new studio in a gold rush era dance hall in country Victoria.
Jeff will also be giving an Artist Talk here at the gallery on Saturday 28th of August, from 2.00pm - 4.00pm. Let us know if you'd like to attend and gain an insight into this senior artist's long career dedicated to capturing the vastness of Australia's terrain. It promises to be a fascinating event.
