June 7 to July 27, 2012, opening hours 9am to 5pm daily.

Amanda Taylor (née Begg), Rosie Begg and Torie Begg (note that the initials of their first names spell ‘art’, funnily enough) present Begg Girls Get Framed, a collection of new works by the ladies of the Begg family, exhibiting together for the first time.

After years of exhibiting alone, Torie suggested a family exhibition, and this is the result. This family exhibition by a mother and her two daughters has a variety of works of acrylic on canvas and linen, and fine pen and wash on paper. The exhibition is bright, bold, heavily textured and decorative.

Each has their own unique style and design. Amanda Taylor enjoys working with fine pen and wash on paper, producing works based around shoes, bird cages, and fruit trees, whereas Rosie Begg paints acrylic on canvas and linen and has a love for fruit, horse racing scenes (polo), and figure work (nudes), while Torie Begg is well known for her heavily textured, contemporary, decorative artwork on canvas using acrylic paints, and she enjoys abstract, floral works, nudes, fruit, and sea scenes.

The exhibition is contemporary and highly detailed and the eclectic mix of styles will delight and cater for many different tastes. Although some of the subjects are similar, their own unique styles create a totally different look.

Don’t miss this great opportunity to see the works of these three family members finally exhibiting together.
