Featured Artist: Sue Gasser

Sue has been a professional artist for over 30 years and works with pastels. She lives in the Blue Mountains where her subjects are in abundance. Art has always been a passion and a natural talent as she has had no formal tutoring. Sue delights in celebrating the beauty of creation and her photo realistic artworks invite the viewer to come close and check that it is indeed a painting and not a photograph. Her love for animals is evident in Sue`s attention to the finely detailed drawing of feathers and fur.
Sue has won many art awards with at least half being the Viewers choice award, which tells her what the public like. Sue's work hangs both locally and abroad including in the Council chambers of Sanda Japan as a gift to the Mayor from the Blue Mountains City Council.

How to Get There

The Art Show takes place in the Main Hall of Springwood High School, Grose Road, Faulconbridge. Grose Road is accessed off the Great Western Highway, and the School is about 1.4km down the road on the right.

If you are travelling from Sydney, you'll find Grose Road on the RIGHT at the lights of the intersection at Faulconbridge shops and Faulconbridge Public School. Also look out for the signs for the Norman Lindsay Gallery.

If you are travelling from Lithgow, you'll pass the Ugg Boots store just before you reach the intersection and you will be turning LEFT, past Faulconbridge Public School, onto Grose Road.

Continue straight down Grose Rd (mind the speed bumps). At the roundabout, go straight ahead and you are at Springwood High School. The Hall is well sign-posted and the closest building to the road.
