Some Culture on the Long Weekend
Contemporary artist Jane Dacruz has travelled and lived across the globe, from the UK and USA, through the European beauty of Sweden, Holland, Portugal, Spain and Greece to the striking splendour of Nigeria, Uganda and South Africa and the exotic locales of South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Yet it was the natural beauty of the West Australian landscape, and its constantly changing moods that has attracted Jane, and over the Easter long weekend, the Joondalup gallery is presenting her debut solo exhibition: Strata.

Working from photographs she has taken while exploring the coastline of Western Australia, Jane is a painter in the contemporary realist style, and works across all mediums including acrylic, pastel and oil. Winner of the Ballina Waves and Waterways Art Prize (2013), Jane's use of rich colours bring to life the vivid beauty and depth of our unique landscape from the waters to the sky, and all that lies in between.

The exhibition will appeal to all lovers of Western Australia's stunning landscapes and familiar icons.

This is Jane's first solo exhibition, and there will be an opening night event on Easter Saturday from 6pm, with the exhibition running for a week until Friday April 1st.

The Joondalup Art Gallery is a venture between the City of Joondalup and the Joondalup Community Arts Association, supporting both local and national artists and providing classes for adults and children.
