Summer in the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden, Mount Tomah will be well complimented by the fine art of Rachel Newling in her ‘Birdland’ exhibition on the themes of birds and landscapes, on from 29 October until 13 December.
Rachel is known for her vibrant and detailed hand coloured linocuts and has more recently added engraving as a medium as well as new pastel drawings. The exhibition will be opened by Gregg Borschmann, ABC Radio National Environment Editor who will be hosting a conversation with Rachel about her art, her life and the essence of Australia.
There are 24 works on display, intricate landscapes and portraits of keenly observed birds that visit Rachel at her Sydney home, or birds she has encountered on trips to Kakadu and far North Queensland.

In a ‘Floor Talk’ with Rachel on Saturday 12 November, you can join the artist as she provides a talk about the works in her exhibition and demonstrates linocut making and hand printing. Rachel will also lead a discussion of some of the other mediums she uses including digital prints and drawing.
