Pim Sarti and Marijke Greenway, two artists painting en plein air side-by-side every week for the past 10 years, are presenting their new exhibition SHOWOFFS 2012 in the Pearl Beach Community Hall this October long weekend.

This year the contrast between the artists' subject matter could not be greater. Marijke Greenway travelled over the outback for three months last year - dwarfed by the grand scale of the infinite and red Australian landscape she completed 40 paintings on-site. These works have been internalised back in the safe haven of the artist's studio to emphasise the magnitude that she remembers, capturing the sublime soul of the outback in paint.

Moving from the outback to the homestead, Pim Sarti has contemplated the intimate obsessions of her private sanctuary with a series of small still lives, precisely arranged and then seductively painted with an unrivalled richness of colour. Her large en plein air paintings of the boats, beaches and blooms of the Central Coast show the confidence of a mature artist.

Opening: 6pm Friday 28 September 2012
