Held on October 11-12, the exhibition will showcase three of his works, including his door prize A boy and his sister, a painting of a young boy and girl standing in the shallow water at Hillarys Boat Harbour.

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

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

‘Exhibitors at the Trigg Art Club exhibitions are varied with oil, pastel, water colour, acrylic and mixed medium works, so there is something for everyone.’

The Trigg club was established more than 40 years ago to raise funds to buy much-needed equipment for the Trigg Surf Life Saving 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 7.30pm on October 10 at the Trigg Surf Life Saving Club.
