Russell Danby has been a practicing artist since the late 1970s.
He studied Fine Art – Painting at Caulfield Institute (Monash) and went on to have many exhibitions in the inner city of Melbourne in the 1970s and 80s. In 1986 he lived in London, UK and exhibited in an Islington Gallery. In 1988, Russell lived in Penang, Malaysia and exhibited at the Dewan Sri (Town Hall) in Georgetown.
On return to Australia, Russell worked for 10 years in Community Services at Vision Australia. During Leave, he established his own artistic business – muralmaker.com.au. This venture demonstrated Russell’s skill in painting large community and private murals. He worked solo in this area for the next 10 years.
More recently, Russell has travelled to numerous countries, taking his sketch pad and recording everyday life. He now paints watercolours of the scenery he observes. This exhibition reflects the scenery and locations that have been near to him over the past three years. Covid Lockdown became an issue but he continued to paint scenery that was readily available.
Oils exhibition until 1 April. Watercolours exhibition 31 May – 4 July.

Judy Watson was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1966. She grew up surrounded by animals, in a home attached to her father’s veterinary clinic, spending many weeks each year on a family farm. From a young age she walked to the nearby public library and devoured books, and her grandmother, a painter encouraged her to create large paintings for display on the veterinary waiting room wall.
Judy’s love of reading, drawing and the visual arts led her to a degree in Fine Arts at Melbourne University. Animals, particularly dogs, continued to be an integral part of her personal life. She lived in London in the late 1980s, working in the box office of the Aldwych Theatre in London’s West End. In her time there she painted the people she met and developed a love of theatre culture which later fed into her visual language.
Returning to Australia, she began work at Greening Australia Victoria, promoting sustainable farming techniques through the illustration and design of educational materials. Her time there re-opened her eyes to Australia’s natural beauty, and shortly after this she moved naturally into children’s book illustration which combined her interests in the visual arts, animals, nature, people, stage and costume, and books. Her art practice and book illustration have travelled along side by side, feeding into one another since then.
Judy has been published by Penguin, HarperCollins, Walker Books, and Allen and Unwin. Her book Goodnight, Mice! (author, Frances Watts) won a Prime Minister’s Literary Award in 2012. Searching for Cicadas (auth. Lesley Gibbes) was shortlisted for the CBCA Eve Pownall Award in 2020. Leonard Doesn’t Dance (auth. Frances Watts) was selected by the International Youth Library for inclusion in the prestigious White Ravens Catalogue 2020. Her latest book with Sofie Laguna is When You’re Older. Illustrations from the book were shortlisted for the Bologna Children’s Book Fair Illustrator Exhibition 2022.
Judy lives and works in Frankston South, on a property backing onto a wildlife reserve and the Sweetwater Creek. She is married to a plant nerd and has two teenage children, a three-legged dog, several chickens and an ever-changing array of foster cats.

This exhibition features the work of a small group of year 9 students who have responded to the theme ‘Emotions’. Collectively the students share a love of art and many meet regularly during their lunchtimes to create and further their passions.
While the works are connected by the theme of ‘Emotions’ they are diverse in medium, subject matter and approach. Each student provides their personal interpretation and a unique perspective to this broad theme.
‘Emotions’ runs until May 29.
