Knight’s close encounters

Share Canberra's trusted news:
Ken Knightley's "Evening Approaches".

YOU have until October 9 to get out to Bungendore Wood Works Gallery to view “Going Bush,” an exhibition of 38 land and seascapes by veteran impressionist artist Ken Knight.

Knight’s followers have been packing into the gallery to take in his representations of familiar scenes from around the NSW coast and country and comments on the detail and depth of his painting style, developed over the past 30 years.

Born in Sydney in 1956, Knight studied for a Bachelor of Arts Degree and Diploma of Education at Sydney University from 1975 to 1978.

Later as a secondary school geography teacher, Knight took advantage of opportunities to develop his work as a plein-air landscape artist. With the natural world at the centre of his career focus, painting became the perfect way of visually expressing his feelings for the landscape.

Ken Knight’s “Going Bush” is at Bungendore Wood Works Gallery,  18 Malbon Street, Bungendore until October 10, 9am – 5pm daily.
