Rikki Fisher, wildlife artist and photographer, is co-ordinating Blue Knob Hall Gallerys current exhibition Fur, Feathers and Flora, which runs till June 1.

She has brought together 20 wildlife artists, some who have come from as far afield as Victoria and South Australia, to exhibit in this annual show.

Vida Pearsons lino cuts create crisp strong images. Janet Matthews coloured pencil drawings are painstakingly executed. Donna Sharams oils on canvas are big and bold abstracts of fish while Perri and Alan Wains macro-photos bring flora and fauna up close and personal.

Tess Cole, a young emerging artist from Adelaide, is showing for the first time her detailed ink on paper drawings.

There are too many artists to mention, but each artist in Fur, Feathers and Flora contributes in their distinctive way to this fascinating look at the other lives that share our world.

The gallery is open from 10am to 4pm, Wednesday to Sundays.

For more info phone Rikki on 6689 0001 or Blue Knob Hall Gallery on 6689 7449.
