Local? artists take over Lake Russell

Merryl Neylon with Golden Hills, one of her new landscapes that go on show at Lake Russell Gallery today in Four Directions, an exhibition of the work of four very different painters with long-standing connections to the Coffs Coast. A shy and retiring painter, Merryl Neylon has lived on her family farm in the Coramba hills for 30 years, but her intuitive, colourful portraits and landscapes have won prizes from Bundaberg to Bellingen, and her work is hung in collections in the UK and New Zealand as well as Australia. Merryl, who is making a return to painting in oils, says she has been 'captured by light and colour' in pigments as well as in the landscape and is enjoying the new direction of her work. She has joined fellow Coffs Coast artists Ros Robertson, Narelle Telford, and Hunter Valley painter Lorna Wall in the exhibition, which will remain on show until April 15.
