One of the Old Post Office Seymour art gallery's big events is on again.July 30, 2014 3:49am
The Old Post Office fine art gallery and restaurant in Seymour will host the official opening of one of its major events of the year on Sunday.
The August Occasion this year features oil painter Agnes Szetey, whose work is wide-ranging, including scenes from the Australian bush, heritage scenes, flowers, horses and people.
Yarra Valley-based Szetey is of Hungarian heritage and was born in Europe, migrating to Australia with her parents and sister.
She knew her future was in painting by the age of six and by 14 her life’s ambition was more apparent because she was devoting all her time and efforts to painting.
She is mainly self-taught, but also completed a course at Monash University in the Old Masters Techniques to further diversify and enhance her talent.
Over the years she expanded and broadened her knowledge in her chosen medium — oil.
Her oil paintings range in size from miniatures to mural size, but all are given the same depth and light.
Over the years Szetey has won several prestigious art prizes and numerous highly commended awards, which in turn has kept her dedicated and motivated to continue to create works of art.
With more than a dozen solo exhibitions, some complete sell outs, her paintings have been purchased by overseas and Australian investors and collectors while many prominent art critics have praised her work.
This will be her seventh solo exhibition at the Old Post Office Seymour.
Other artists on show include Antje Collins, Vivi Palegeorge, David Chen and Vida Pearson.
The exhibition opens on Sunday, from 11
Entry is free and opening hours are 11
