Fundraiser - Katie Clemson prints and linocuts of Pittwater Boatsheds

06 Sep 2015 11:19 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)


Pittwater we all know as a canvas for all life’s colours, with an eternal appeal to the artistic whether that be of talent or temperament. 

Katie Clemson was an outstandingly talented artist, renowned not only here in her native Australia but also internationally.   If you do a web search for Katie Clemson you’ll read of a life lived in glorious technicolour and an incredible list of her works, exhibitions and achievements.

‘Pittwater for me is heaven, my haven and inspiration’ wrote Katie in a prelude to an exhibition of her linocuts of Pittwater.   Katie‘s work really does reach into the canvas of Pittwater and captures the energy, the light and indeed the raw beauty of her, and our, haven.


Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of Katie’s husband Alex Allan and her friend Suzanne Akerman, we have a number of Katie’s works for sale with proceeds directed to the Scotland Island Rural Fire Brigade.  These include a few of the limited edition ‘Pittwater Boatshed’ linocuts and her truly superb print of Woody Point.  Additionally we have a few of the posters of ‘Pittwater Boatsheds’ which would be ideal gifts for anyone who has visited and enjoyed this special place.

These will all be available for viewing and sale at the September 12th Fire Shed Dinner and at the Fire Brigade Open Day on September 13th.  Or, you can contact myself or Penny Wise from the Community Fire Unit and we’ll happily arrange a private viewing – believe me they are something special!
