'COASTLAND' a solo exhibition by local artist, Mark Cairns
7 January - 20 February 2022
Artist in Residence at Lon Retreat, Point Lonsdale
Award-winning artist Mark Cairns will show his most recent collection of masterly paintings at his long-awaited solo exhibition 'Coastland'.
Coastland - which in the acclaimed style of Mark Cairns paints a distinctive and atmospheric picture of the Bellarine Peninsula's iconic seascapes - will run for a six-week window as part of Lon Retreat's artist in residence series.
Exhibition open for public viewing & sales and works available to view & purchase online at The Little Shop of Lon from Friday 7 Jan 2022.
Mark Cairns, who has painted the coastal vistas of his local Bellarine region and the Surfcoast for more than three decades, and who has exhibited his artistic works nationally and in collections internationally, says 'Coastland' speaks to the seaside environment that many, like him, have found recent relief in.
"For so many, the elements of nature and the ocean have offered so much solace in lockdown. They are never-ending sources of inspiration for my work".
