If you would like to keep up to date with what's on at Yindela, we have our Blog!
Had loads of fun setting up our new exhibition at Yindela yesterday!
WOW... it's bustling in the Cafe! Testament to Glen's amazing coffee, service and style.
Love the big lounges he has put in, think I might be taking the laptop up there to study this week.
Our new artist is a local who dropped in for a coffee one day! That's what the Art Space at Yindela is all about, an opportunity for locals to share what they do.
Michele Roach paints straight from the heart, love that! Her 'Rock' series are my favourites. The nestled rocks and earth beneath us in rich colours and such interesting patterns are intriguing and beautiful. I don't think I could ever get tired of them.
Michele has also included landscapes including Vienna (which proved very popular during our installation day!) and local dreamy seascapes.
We have cheekily extended around the corner of the Art Space and hung two of Michele's very vibrant, fun works of dancers.
13th May - 3rd June 2011
My name is Michele Roach and I am a mother and grandmother.
I have spent most of my life as a Health Care Professional, helping
others and watching life happen to “other people”. I particularly
loved working in Palliative Care, and would like to think I made this
journey less painful for a lot of patients and their families.
All this changed for me 18 months ago, with a devastating diagnosis
of Parkinson ’s Disease.
Work outside the home became impossible after a while, and I
decided to reacquaint myself with my old hobby of painting.
This quickly became my therapy and my total escape.
Soon I was back taking Art lessons and trying to learn more about
what had now become my passion.
I would like to share some of my journey with you through the
paintings here today. I hope the message you take away is
“living in the moment” and “when one door closes, another opens”.
You just have to keep knocking!
