A big year for Craig Waddell

Following Craig’s successful exhibition Headlands with Edwina Corlette Gallery, he is a finalist for three Australian artist awards for recent paintings. Craig’s work Persimmon Grove was selected as a finalist for the annual Gosford Art Prize at Gosford Regional Gallery. The beautifully rendered You Lie Deep Within was nominated for the Eutick Memorial Still Life Award (EMSLA) at Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery. And Where the Wild Things Grow has been selected for the annual Fisher’s Ghost Art Award, Campbelltown Art Centre. Our fingers are crossed!

Belle Magazine’s November 2015 issue features a beautiful editorial on our Artist Dinner with Michael Reid at Bucci restaurant. Tanya Buchanan writes, ‘the sumptuously layered oil artworks [Craig] creates come from an appreciation of beauty and a place of great physicality… Working with layers and layers of oil paint in the manner that he does takes a lot of perseverance and energy…” (pg. 203 – 205)
