Festival of Two Palettes
Morpeth Gallery
Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th March 2017
10am till 5pm
5 Green Street, Morpeth NSW 2321

It’s that time of the year when a dozen of Australia’s best landscape and wildlife artists will travel from around the country to descend on Morpeth Gallery for the Festival of Two Palettes.

Morpeth Gallery has been home to the world famous, Australian landscape artist John McCartin for 12 years, and is the only gallery in Australia where you can see his stunning works.  However if you are travelling overseas you can see his originals in Gallery France, in France, and the Trailside Gallery in USA.

John is one of world’s finest artists. He has won multiple awards internationally and throughout Australia as a full time professional painter.

Last year he was named ‘Master Painter of the World’ and took home 10 prizes in the 2016 American Art Awards bringing his total number of International Awards to 52 in the last three years.

John’s work including landscapes and still life paintings attract an increasing amount of attention, and demand continues to grow for his work as it becomes more expensive as the pressure for his work outstrips supply.

Among the artists who will be spending the weekend at the gallery are John Vander, Werner Filipich, Ramon Ward-Thompson, John McCartin, John Bradley, Natalie Jane-Parker, James Hough, Garry Fleming and Ann Morton will all be at the gallery, paintbrush in hand, both Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th March and entry is free.

The newest addition to our gallery, seascape artist Robyn Collier will be at the gallery on Sunday along with botanical artist Heidi Willis.

You will have the chance to meet these incredible artists and see how they create their works in our relaxed and informal gallery.

Australian wildlife artist extraordinaire Stephen Jesic has won First Place in the 2016 12th International ARC (Art Renewal Centre) Salon Competition in the animal category for his stunning painting ‘Jewel of the Amazon’.

Sold earlier this year at Morpeth Gallery, Stephen’s ‘Jewel of the Amazon’ painting was one of 3,196 entries in the competition, which represented 63 countries and 1300 artists. The Animal Category alone represents 106 entries out of the 282 works entered into this category.

“This category includes all animal art; any paintings, sculptures or drawings where an animal or animals are the central focus of the work. Animal art is an important way for the general public to stop and appreciate animal life in a way that they may not do in their everyday lives. It draws attention to the importance of animal rights and it draws interest to the other living creatures that share or have shared our world in both reality and myth, demonstrating that animals are every bit as worthy of being subjects of fine art,“ ARC.

To make this great news even better, Stephen has also been selected as a winning artist in the Arcadia Contemporary Award. Arcadia Contemporary in coordination with the ARC, choose the selected artists who will also have the opportunity to have an exhibition and sale of a new series of their work in 2017, or early 2018.

Stephen’s works are represented in Morpeth Gallery, and all the way to New York. He is internationally acclaimed, having won numerous awards such as the 2014 International Artist Magazine’s Grand Prize Winner for Challenge #83 Wildlife for his painting ‘Tender Tips’, he has been featured in many Australian Artist Magazines, and been commissioned for work with the likes of Matisse and Australia Post.
