Gregory R. Smith FVAS past President, Hon. Life Member, over 30 years teaching experience.
The constant challenge to gain a greater understanding of how and what we see has been a driving force behind my need to paint.
As an artist and teacher, developing greater visual knowledge allows my artwork to have a purpose, one of education. Accepting the limitations of paint to attempt to capture the truth before us is an important part of our growth. Every painting is a new lesson.
While painting always ‘direct from life’ the journey is endless, and forever fascinating and stimulating.
Over my artistic career I have held 43 solo exhibitions and have received some 200 art awards for still life, portraiture, landscape, floral and life work.
We would like to pay our respects to the traditional owners of the land on which our building stands, their leaders, past, present and emerging.
