“Ghost Tram sighted in Melbourne!”

To celebrate Melbourne author Robert Lastdrager’s  first children’s book, Ghost Tram, Fairfield Library is displaying some of the book’s beautiful illustrations.

Published in 2015, Ghost Tram is richly illustrated by Queensland artist Richard Cox, whose work in oils conjures evocative, brooding landscape.

Freedom – Manual Macheras
This artwork on display during March is by local artist Manuel Macheras.
Artist Statement
Most of my work includes scenery of my childhood years, consisting of ocean scenery, coupled with a country feel. They were painted in my home in a studio I have and to conclude, they have not been sited paintings. They are impressionistic in style and I have used water colours on paper as a medium. They are 170 x 235mm in size.

All materials have been supplied by Art Stretchers Co, 321 High Street
