The current exhibition at Gallery 294 Corowa is 'From Soldier to Artist' by artist Sharon McKenzie who after being in the Regular Army for over twenty years, has retired and is now developing and honing her art skills.
She loves doing her Art and it is proving beneficial to her overall wellbeing, and she has found it a key ingredient in the healing of her own personal situation.
Her art has many influences and should appeal to a very wide audience.

Gallery 294 is currently showcasing the works of Karen Balderson under the banner of "Journeys" This will be from the 6th right through till the 30th of June. Here is a snippet of what Karen has to say on the works.
Some of my mandalas depict a day’s journey, others a number of weeks or some, several seasons in a year. While the majority of my photographic collages relate to my own journeys, I also experiment with ways of creating mandalas which reflect some of my ancestor’s journeys.
