Sometimes magic happens!
Julie Chambers director of The Art Vault in Mildura rang recently to invite me to spend some time in the river area of the Darling. I spent some time chatting with Julie and Pam organising the trip with them. Pam is a local interested in my work and how I would interpret and respond to the river gums on her property on the Darling River. Must say I’m curious too in how to capture the unique feel, colour and environment of that area. And then to compare this area to the area I live in the Blue Mountains.
I am looking forward to the journey there, meeting up with good friends at The Art Vault, meeting Pam and spending time out bush. We intend
to devote time being in the environment and I’ll be doing plenty of sketching and plein air work. And I anticipate some of these works will be in the exhibition ‘Out of the Blue’ at The Art Vault in June/July.
Check The Art Vault for more information on what they do and my coming exhibition.

The Art Vault is a privately owned art gallery in Mildura that has developed into a vital art hub in Mildura and thew Mallee area. The Art Vault offers art residencies and exhibitions. Ruth has been associated with The Art Vault since 2010 and has had a number of exhibitions and art residencies with them. This is a wonderful opportunity for Ruth to return to the area and be inspired. She is already looking forward to it!
