Eighteen artists showing ninety-nine works make this a big exhibition of small works. Some of Canberra’s best known and loved artists have works in this exhibition with subject matter so varied there is sure to be something for every taste.
There are still life studies, flowers and fruit along with tiny detailed landscapes and seascapes. There are boats, birds and other animals, bonsai trees, cityscapes and festival scenes. Armchair travelers will find scenes from around the world.
With the constraint of making an image 10x10cms or no larger than 100 square centimetres, the artists in this exhibition prove that it is possible to do a great deal with very little space.
The artists are: Sharon Buckland,
Margaret Bice, Margaret Carr, Lyn Cottingham, Kylie Fogarty, Jocelyn Godber,
Eva Henry, Cheryl Hodges, Janet Hicks, Sandra House, Val Johnson, Michaela
Laurie, Stuart Marshall, Isla Patterson, Neil Renfree, Camelia Smith, Jan
Vincent and Arlene Williams.

What’s WOW and why were we there? Canberrans will know that Wellington, like Nara and Beijing, is one of our sister cities. Canberra’s population is about 390,000; Wellington’s is about 413,000. Both are the capital cities of our nations.
Our experiences of Wellington over many years confirm that it is a city which does well in the arts and culture stakes as well as being very live-able and pleasant to visit as a tourist.
