Meeting History in Miniature by Marilyn Murray

Meeting History in Miniature by Childers based artist, Marilyn Murray, follows on from her successful exhibition Memories in Miniature at Gatakers Arts Space. With no work larger than 8.9cm x 6.4cm, this display of 100 framed paintings takes the viewer on a visual tour of South East Queensland.

In her delightful style, Murray depicts meeting places she has come across in her travels around regional Australia in her caravan. Since Covid-19, these travels have become more localised, but that has not stopped Murray in finding inspiration in the landscapes she encounters. Country churches, community halls, pubs, old picture theatres have all been immortalised in these beautifully executed miniatures.
