Father, son display their talents in gallery show

Eltham's Village Gallery is holding its final exhibition for the year.

Under the Christmas Tree features work especially created by gallery members.

Of note this month is work by Graeme Hotter and his son Adrian.

Graeme is known for his cartoons and maps, but has produced several large landscapes of the countryside around Eltham.

These are Eltham from Burkes Hill, native bush at the Stratford Mountain House, waterfalls on the Eltham walkway, and a commissioned work of an Eltham farmhouse with the mountain in the background.

By contrast, Adrian has a gift for painting animals and has submitted three works. These are Zebra, Golden Spaniel and African Elephant.

As well as the paintings, Graeme has a new selection of cards and posters for sale. He has also produced a photographic book of his artworks.

Jean Franklin, a new member, has several large and dramatic paintings on display, while Jennifer Gooding's watercolour is a softer and reflective work.

This exhibition at The Village Gallery closes on December 15.
