Joan Hurtado

From the "Rainforest"series by Joan Hurtado
"Littoral Dreaming" by Joan Hurtado from the "Beachcomber" series
"Reflections of the Bay Artworkers" by Joan Hurtado from the "Beachcomber" series

Thought I would put a post up about long standing member
Joan and Dave Hurtado have been stalwarts at 
Yurara, including stints on the Executive Committee.
Yurara would be a very different place
without the input of these two dynamos.

Joan recently held a farewell exhibition at the Yurara Gallery
to celebrate their move to Mitchell in rural Queensland.
Unfortunately, they timed their move a week 
before devastating floods hit the area.
Along with this Dave has been experiencing poor health.

We at Yurara wish them both well with their 
new life in Mitchell and know they will
be making a positive difference in their new community.
