ARTS editor Helen Musa headed for the coast recently, assiduously avoiding the fiery King’s Highway, to view a joint exhibition by photographer Heide Smith and painter Wendy Macklin and returned with a swag of Smith’s ravishing pictures of the south coast.
Heide and her husband Brian relocated last year from Hobbs Point on the estuary behind Narooma, opting for a less taxing lifestyle in glorious Tuross Head, where they have set up a small gallery separate from their living space.
Famous for “shooting” famous Canberrans, Heide has taken to the photographic challenges of her new hometown like a duck to water as the pictures show, and says the south coast offers her a chance to photograph stunning landscapes.
Heide Smith welcomes visitors to her gallery throughout the holidays, by appointment at 0415 382905 or firstname.lastname@example.org
