Plinth Show: Diane Donohue

Mon 1 July - Wed 31 July

Daily throughout July 2024, Grenfell. Three paintings by Diane Donohue, an emerging artist from Grenfell. Arts OutWest’s Plinth Show will highlight a different artist, with their work displayed on portable plinths, at a different visitor information centre around the Central West each month for 12 months. Forbes is the first exhibition. Diane Donohue is a Grenfell local who has discovered painting later in life. “Back when raising my own family, I was keen to ensure the children had access to all kinds of arts materials and musical instruments. I gave them lots of encouragement and it worked out well,” Diane said. “These days, in a freer stage of life, there was an opportunity to join a recently formed group of locals who come together weekly to try out various art techniques together, guided by more experienced artists such as Di Franks.” It didn’t take long before Diane was collecting art materials for herself and feeling “the bliss of being in the flow” as she experimented. Three of her creations will be on show. “These three little works are a whimsical attempt of in mixed media. These received lots of positive comments, and thus they are exhibited again with the support of Arts OutWest,” Diane said.
