"Setting off unknown to face the unknown, against parental opposition, with no money, friends, or influence, ran it a close second. Clichés like 'blazing trails,' flying over 'shark-infected seas,' 'battling with monsoons,' and 'forced landings amongst savage tribes' became familiar diet for breakfast. Unknown names became household words, whilst others, those of the failures, were forgotten utterly except by kith and kin." - Amy John, First woman to fly from Britain to Australia alone
Two new works by Kate Smith are now exhibiting at Gallery Salamanca and they're fantastic. So, don't miss out.
New work has arrived from Tasmanian pastel artist, Kate Smith, entitled 'Flight of Fancy' and it's delightful.
"The queen, I say, is the mother bee; it is undoubtedly complimenting her to call her a queen and invest her with regal authority, yet she is a superb creature and looks every inch a queen." ~ John Burroughs ~
Sometimes we just pinch ourselves when we think of how fortunate we are to represent such amazing artists in Tasmania. And we seem to pinch ourselves a lot when it comes to representing pastel artist, Kate Smith.
