Organisation is well under way for this year's 10th annual romantics Art exhibition, invitations are printed and awaiting posting to our loyal followers who we thank for their continued support. This years exhibition runs from Friday night the 6th September until close on Sunday 8th at 4.oo pm. We look forward to welcoming new lovers of art this year to view and appreciate the art of 5 of Australia's leading and internationally recognised traditional artists.

Ramon Ward-Thompson has just returned from Paris and France and we look forward to seeing his new works from that trip. He spent time in Paris sketching all his favourite places and then some time down in the beautiful Languedoc region of southern France travelling along the Canal du Midi. The light in that area is remarkable, soft misty mornings leading to days of gentle sunshine, just perfect for his painting style!

Werner recently travelled together with fellow artist Jim Hough on the western slopes of the Great Divide in the New England area experiencing very cold weather conditions. Werner collected some amazing photographs of winter colour, misty mornings and warm afternoon light setting between the mountains and ridges, all to be transformed onto canvas in the near future. As usual always a few good stories to relate from these trips

Ian has been busy completing commissions, the most recent being from the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race. At the end of September 2018 Ian won the 9th international award at Mystic Seaport Museum in America, Ian continues to impress the American judges with his marine paintings.

Max has been kept busy paintings for exhibitions he has been involved over the past year, all having been very successful. Max's paintings of life in the outback and his bush humour are based on his many typical experiences as a youngster working in the bush, they capture the real essence of being part of the great Aussie tradition, also bringing back so many memories to people that have been lucky enough to experience life "in the bush"

Jim has just completed the year 2020 Australian Geographic Wildlife Art calendar which will be launched and for sale at this year's Romantics show. It showcases 13 of Jims original works, a mix of Australian wildlife and birds. On their recent trip Jim was able to collect many references for his wildlife art whilst Werner concentrated on the surrounding landscape both realising the vastness of this beautiful big country of ours.
