On show on October 11 and 12, the exhibition will display three of his works, including his door prize A Boy and his Sister, a painting of two young children at the ocean’s edge in Hillarys Boat Harbour.

‘I took up painting approximately 10 years ago after I retired, began lessons with an art teacher and then became a member of the Trigg Art Club,’ White said.

‘I paint with oils on board or canvas and my style is mainly impressionistic and realism.’

Formed more than 40 years ago, The Trigg Art Club was set up with the purpose of raising funds to purchase much- needed equipment for the Trigg Surf Club.

‘Opening night will provide the first opportunity to view and purchase your favourite piece, so come along and support the surf club at the same time,’ club spokeswoman Nira Roberts said.

‘The members of the art club would also like to pay tribute to the dedication, personal commitment and ever- friendly presence of their recent president Denis Herd, who passed away suddenly on July 3,’ she said.

Opening night will be on October 10 at Trigg Surf Lifesaving Club, at 7.30pm.
