Biographical Info

CABBI is a ‘not for profit group’ formed over 32 years ago by a small group of local artists so they could come together to meet and exhibit their work. We are very proud that now, in 2018, that group has grown to over 120 members who produce a high standard of work in painting, craft and sculpture.
One of the main advantages of being a member is to be among like minded people. They feel strongly about their craft and are usually more than willing to share ideas and ‘talk art’. To this end we hold a general meeting once a month. After each meeting a newsletter is produced and you will be sent a copy to keep you up to date with all the ‘art happenings’ with the group and in the area.
CABBI also holds several exhibitions throughout the year with a judged competition in the first 2 weeks of January each year. These exhibitions give members a chance to not only sell their work but be rewarded for the standard that they produce.
Also there are varied and interesting workshops for members to attend to hone their skills throughout the year. These are held by experienced presenters in various painting mediums and also sculpture. Dates for workshops will be posted in the newsletter.
We have a ‘plein air’ group who meet once a week at various locations to paint together and new members are always welcome.
The Gallery in Mogo is available for members to exhibit their work. There is also a lending library of informative art books and magazines at the gallery for members to borrow.
Our members are given 10% discount at the following art stores:
•       Frame Fast Art Haven, North St, Batemans Bay….. Art Supplies and Framing 4472 4174
•       Amanda’s of Mogo, Princess Highway, Mogo ……..Art Supplies 4474 3453

Biographical Info

TRACEY CREIGHTON – The Artist

From an early age I knew I wanted to be an artist. I was blessed to have grown up within a family who loved to paint, draw and design. My grandmother was a wonderful water-colourist and oil painter, following in the style of the Australian Impressionists, my father was a builder who designed and drew intricate house plans, and my mother created and produced colourful fashion garments. Their positive and creative influence enabled me to see the beauty in life and nature through a spectrum of light, line, colour, pattern and texture.

My art career commenced in my teens when I studied and worked as a graphic designer. Composition, colour, balance and harmony were paramount in every design project and twenty years later when I moved into fine art, I found all those intrinsic elements were vital to all work regardless of the style or period of art.

When painting I draw on my own experiences whether they be spiritual, emotional or physical. I don’t intentionally set out to produce art about any subject or thing in particular but rather allow the painting to lead me. Sometimes my loose initial marks gives me a sense of how the work might develop but I resist the urge to force the painting in any one direction in case the painting becomes contrived and overworked, losing it’s energy and playfulness.

I allow the artwork to direct me as I rejoice in each brush stroke, remaining conscious of the juxtaposition of every element, resulting in a finished painting which evolved naturally. It is only when the painting has clear direction that I intrude on the space and inject my own thoughts and ideas.

My art is infused with strong design, soft linear elements, layers of thin washes or sometimes bold, textural paint, manifesting in a kaleidoscope of colour. Each painting offers me an opportunity to reach into a sacred place within myself, tap into an intangible feeling, then capture and express it in a painterly manner. Each project is a new adventure, each work fashioned to reflect a mood or topic dear to me, whether it be a specific theme, statement of cultural issues or simply a representation of the magnificence of nature.

The past twenty years as a visual artist has seen me develop works which in turn leads to the next body of work. There is a constant and ever flowing dynamism of ideas and techniques which evolve perpetually, allowing me to explore what seems to be the ‘endless possibilities’ of art, and giving the viewer an opportunity to make a connection with my art and discover their own fundamentally curious nature.

Commissioned works are happily undertaken.

 

TRACEY CREIGHTON – The Tutor

I have been teaching art for nearly 35 years since establishing Queensland’s first private graphic art college (CATC) in Brisbane in 1982. I taught design, typography and finished art to my students who were preparing for a career in the advertising industry.

I ventured into fine art in 1996 after training in America with a young contemporary artist and so began my love of paint and colour. I teach private art lessons and small group workshops here in Merimbula and also interstate.

You can view the painting demonstration video from my episode of ‘Colour in Your Life’ on Youtube or my website.

Lessons and workshops are conducted at intervals right through the year. See my website for more details.

Notes

I mainly work in watercolours with occasional forays into collage and inks. Most of my images are closer to graphic design in their use of space and simplicity. I love birds so they often feature, frequently magpies but also dead birds and other miracles with wings.
