Artwork will be on display from Friday February 23 to  March 21.

Opens Friday 23 Feb 6.30 pm

Cath Meharry - Unframed

Cath Meharry, one of the Drill Hall Studio’s resident artists spent 4 decades teaching art to high school students.  Over that time she has not only taught almost every young woman who studied at St Margaret Mary’s College, she also taught their mums, and some of their teachers!  

Cath’s signature use of mixed media, incorporating watercolour, drawing, printing and collage captures the little details of the natural world around us.  She seeks inspiration and beauty from the coast to the rainforest, from delicate shells to leaves and seed pods.  

This extensive body of work is presented unframed, and so very affordable.

Opens Friday 23 March
