Malcolm Carver, our President, is having a solo exhibition ‘Greek Islands’ – Watercolour Paintings and Sketchbook, 5th – 30th May 2015
Where: Art Atrium Gallery, 181 Old South Head Road, Bondi Junction NSW 2022
Following the success of his previous solo exhibitions, Malcolm Carver continues to capture the essence of his travels with captivating watercolour paintings and drawings. This exhibition includes over 60 works from a few trips which first began in 1975 to the more recent expedition to the Greek islands in April 2014. This latter trip was focused on the Dodecanese Islands, a group to the south east near Turkey, which are delightfully less busy than the well known islands such as Santorini and Mykonos. A sketchbook which includes all the works in this exhibition is also available.
