Drew Holland will create an installation of 12 portraits. He invitesviewers to bring along photographs of friends and relatives to paint.
Shelagh Lummis will produce a series of small to medium sized paintings with a focus on compositions that suggest elements of landscape, colour mixing and technique. She will encourage gallery visitors to try their
hand at colour mixing.
Jessica McLeod-Yu will be drawing and working on her novel called The Wish Bringer.
Aislin MacDonald is a Canadian student on placement at UoN. Her drawings are a reflection on comparisons between Australia and Canada.
