Maclean’s talented artist Pat Jenkins opened her latest exhibition “Now and Then” in The Old Kirk, at the Yamba Museum and Gallery, on Saturday afternoon.

The official opening was conducted by Director of Grafton Regional Gallery, Jude McBean.

This exhibition of Pat’s past and present works, features 32 prized art works, painted in several mediums; oils, acrylics, pastels, water colours and ink and wash.

Pat has included two of her favourite paintings Whirring and Purring and Winton Shearer in this exhibition; however, unlike the rest of the art works, these two aren’t for sale.

Pat’s exhibition is off to a flying start with the sale of two of her amazing paintings within the first 15 minutes of opening on Sunday.
