Gallery: Anne Roberts' solo exhibition

A life member of the Echuca Moama Artists group, Roberts, along with other members, was encouraged to host a solo exhibition.

‘‘I got to the point where I feel I need to move some of my paintings,’’ she said.

Roberts, who paints using mostly three mediums — watercolour, oil and acrylic — said her journey as an artist began to flourish when she retired.

‘‘It was not until I left my teaching career that I had some time to pursue my artistic talents, and to enjoy the company of many fellow artists,’’ Roberts said.

Roberts was introduced to watercolour and ‘plein air painting’ — painting on location — by a tutor at the former Paramount Arts Activity Centre, now OPT nightclub, when it was was used for film, dance, ballet and art activities.

Roberts said she was enthralled with watercolour and progressed on to botanical art.

Many of her artworks feature scenes from around Echuca, including the Echuca wharf, Murray River, Murray Esplanade and the Aquatic Reserve.

All the artworks on display are for sale.
