From Kalamunda to the Kimberley

Posted: 9th April 2015

An intimate relationship with the Kimberley wilderness is the backdrop for the stunning upcoming exhibition at the Zig Zag Gallery. ‘Kalamunda to the Kimberley' is by prolific Broome artist Suzy French and officially opens on Saturday 11 April 2015 at 6:30pm.

Raised in the Kalamunda hills amongst the red gums and granite boulders, Suzy moved to the Kimberley as a young nurse to work throughout the region and has called the Kimberley her home for over 20 years.

Having lived in the remote Fitzroy Crossing and Derby for many years, Suzy now resides in Broome where she works as an Art Lecturer at the Kimberley Training Institute. Suzy has also opened the Broome School of Art, sharing her passion with others whilst continuing to paint and develop her skills.

Shire President Sue Bilich said, "The Shire is delighted to showcase Suzy's art in her childhood home town, where her family have lived for over fifty years."

‘Kalamunda to the Kimberley' introduces Suzy's beautiful and often ethereal work to a wider audience, giving others the chance to experience her intimate love of the ancient Kimberley landscape."

Suzy French said, "I have travelled the Kimberley extensively by air, land and sea, and my work is a testimony to the fortunate life I have lived in this magnificent country."

"As I travel back home to be with my family as often as possible, I continue to have a strong connection with the Kalamunda hills. I am honoured to be holding my first exhibition at the Zig Zag Gallery."

"Kalamunda to the Kimberley" continues until Sunday 3 May 2015.

The Zig Zag Gallery is located at 50 Railway Road in Kalamunda. For more information contact the Zig Zag Cultural Centre on 9257 9998 email zzcc@kalamunda.wa.gov.au
