Southern Highlander Elizabeth Young to showcase latest artwork in Goulburn


Nature’s Palette, an exhibition of recent works by Elizabeth Young, will be on display at South Hill Gallery in Goulburn, 11-26 October 2014. The exhibition will officially be opened by Jane Cush, Director of the Goulburn Regional Gallery on Saturday, 11 October 2014 at 2pm – please join the artist for drinks.

Southern Highlands-based Young is an award winning Australian artist with a career spanning over thirty years. Experimenting with different mediums, tones, colours, styles and textures has led to her versatile range of artistic skills and passions. More details on Young’s career can be found on her

Following the success of her joint exhibition Through Different Eyes at Depot II Gallery in Sydney in 2012; her solo exhibition Expressions of Inner Feelings at the Light Horse Gallery in the Southern Highlands in 2011; as well as many group exhibitions throughout NSW, Young is heading to the heart of Goulburn’s art scene to showcase her latest works. The series of landscape paintings in this exhibition represent her emotional expressions and responses to her surroundings and the affect they have on her senses. The result is shown in a variety of different styles from impressionistic, abstract or linear, through to some works that are more realistic. She has used watercolour, gouache, oils, mixed media and acrylics to create each piece of work. According to Young, the process involved in developing each work involved three basic stages – see, feel and create.

“Nature provides us with continual variation of colour – an ever changing palette,” said Young. “The vibrant colours of autumn, the misty greys of winter, the kaleidoscope of colour in spring and the sultry warm colours of summer, all help create strong emotional responses affecting the way I see and how I feel, which in turn motivates me to create.”

Some of the works have also been inspired by different vistas experienced in the Southern Highlands, as well as through travels to Tumut, the upper Murray/Murrumbidgee Basins and the scenic alpine regions of NSW and VIC.
