Marie Lund

Born in Prague, Czech Republic, she completed studies in art education with a Doctorate in Pedagogy. She was a full-time art and photography teacher for more than twenty years in Australia, Europe and Asia and has a long history of wider involvement in arts – as a photographer, painter and mixed media artist.

She has participated in many group exhibitions, some in Australia and some overseas, and has held fourteen solo exhibitions. These have included painting, printing and photography. Articles about her work have appeared in The Canberra Times (latest review 9.3.2018), Sunraysia Daily, Australian Collector and Batemans Bay Post.

Most of her work is in Mixed Media, Pastel and Photography. She has a special interest in old photographic processes as an art form. Her work can be viewed at Nava Gallery, PhotoAccess Gallery, Hive Gallery, Shoalhaven City Arts Centre and The Art Vault Gallery websites.

She has been a member of professional and community associations including NAVA, PhotoAccess, Eurobodalla Photographic Club, South Coast Pastel Society, Creative Art Batemans Bay.

Marie currently lives between the pristine bushland of The Murramarang National park and The South Sea. The close proximity to the beauty and occasional harshness of nature inspires her imagination and uplifts her spirits. In her words: ”From my childhood, Nature became my best friend. It offers me not only desired freedom, but also everlasting inspiration and retreat. The wonderful world around me full of little sensations always removes me from ordinary.”

Easter Competition and Exhibition

The South Coast Pastel Society 2021 Exhibition and Competition is the society’s premier event for the year with artists entering works in four categories: Landscape; Seascape; Flora/Fauna and Still life/Interior. This year’s judge was highly regarded Narooma artist Janet Jones. The winners and runners up in each category will be awarded cash prizes generously provided by the society’s loyal sponsors who have continued to support the society throughout these difficult times.  61 entries were received across the four categories with standards set very high. Judging took place on Thursday 1 April, prior to the exhibition opening the following day.  This year’s “Best in Show” award was won by Margaret Moran for her wonderfully rendered painting “Nature’s Recycling – Nuttley Creek”. The exhibition continues until Sunday 11 April.

The South Coast Pastel Society is a vibrant group of local and regional artists working mainly in pastel – a pure pigment media with centuries of tradition that is just as fresh and relevant today.  The SCPS has been organising quality exhibitions and activities since the 1980’s and offers regular, world class workshops with renowned local, national and international pastel artists.
