Neptune’s Grotto

A magical underwater world evoked by Ceramic sculpture and painting

 Meredith Plain, Lynne Foard and Lisa Hopper.

11 August to 26th September 2023

Clay Sculpture Demonstrations & Meet the Artist

2 to 4pm Sunday 13 August and 12 to 2pm Saturday 19 August


After enjoying their exhibition last year, Meredith, Lynne and Lisa decided to band together for another exhibition. So, planning started for Neptune’s Grotto, a topic which inspires us all. It  encompasses mythology; the many varied creatures and fantastical plants of the sea; the sense of freedom found in swimming through new worlds. We will be bringing in our interpretations of the watery world to create Neptune’s magical grotto in the Bolin Bolin Gallery – Neptune himself, mermaids, fish and other sea creatures ….

Lynne Foard (more about Lynne) & Meredith Plain (more about Meredith)  have been friends since Lynne introduced  Meredith to the joys of working with clay while she was giving classes at the Eltham Living and Learning Centre in the late 80s. Lynne is an accomplished ceramic artist, but has  focussed most of her creative energy on painting in the last few years. Lisa is Lynne’s daughter who paints and runs her individual shop in Far North Queensland.
