Art career has been 'a wonderful journey'

COASTAL Colours is the title of Jeffrey Baker's summer 2009 art exhibition, now on show.

The 11th annual local solo exhibition by this Coffs Harbour artist is the first to be held in his art studio and exhibition space at 72 Moonee Street.

Jeffrey said the space had been gutted and renovated to house the exhibition, which was held every summer for a decade at Nautilus Resort's now-demolished conference centre.

The artist said Coastal Colours was 'very water-orientated because those are the places we like to be and live'.

The exhibition includes original paintings, reproductions and limited-edition prints, offering affordable choices of his colourful, other-worldly images.

Coastal Colours runs until January 31 and is open every day from 10.30am to 5.30pm. Admission is free.

Jeffrey, who held his first exhibition at Coffs Harbour Jetty's Earth Family Workshop in 1977, said he could not visualise ever retiring from painting

Jeffrey Baker has mainly presented and marketed his art outside mainstream galleries, with the help of his wife Gayle.
