Tenterfield’s Artists’ Collective Studio will host works from painter Graeme Schreiber and potter Albert Verschuuren.

The pair follows on from successful exhibits from Lu Potter, Keith Barnett, Sheryl Wright and Michelle Cockburn in recent months.

Albert Verschuuren and Graeme Schreiber will begin their artist residency this Friday night at the Artists’ Collective Studio.

“Graeme is now a full-time artist after working in the engineering field for over 20 years. His paintings are done in both contemporary and realistic styles, with wildlife and landscapes being major themes,” gallery organiser Anni Washington said.

Mr Verschuuren brings his renowned works to Tenterfield following successful exhibits over the border.

“Albert’s unique work results from the combination of skilful wheel-throwing, use of local clays and glaze materials and wood-firing his kiln. Born in the Netherlands and trained in Canada, Albert has called the Granite Belt home since 1978.

“He is recognised as one of Australia’s master potters,” Ms Washington said.

“We invite all to join us in celebrating the work of these two well-known artists from the Granite Belt.”

The exhibit opens on Friday, March 6 from 5.30-8pm at the Artists’ Collective Studio on Rouse St.

The works will remain in the gallery until April 19.
