VAL WHATLEY tribute book offer and exhibition.

Bob Brown invites you to two special offers: a pre-publication sale of his limited edition art book “Val Whatley’s TASMANIA”; and the rare exhibition and sale online of Val’s personal collection of 40 paintings.

Proceeds will go to the artist.

Val Whatley’s TASMANIA

This hard-cover book with dust-jacket puts on beautiful display 58 of Val Whatley’s paintings, three of which are watercolours, and some of which are owned interstate.

Collated by Bob Brown, with a tribute from Paul Richards OAM, the short text traces Val’s life as an artist and wilderness adventurer and advocate.

Professionally photographed in three states, this is a superb collection from Val’s life and times. From the Franklin River’s Great Ravine to the quietness of Lake Marion and the Guardians, to the vibrant still-life portrayals of flowers from her garden, this is a Val’s stunning tribute to the beauty of Tasmania.

Quotes from Val’s writings accompany the paintings.

Only 300 copies of this limited edition book are being printed (here in Tasmania).

This pre-publication offer runs for just 10 days, while stocks remain.

Don’t miss out!

This special price of $59.95 simply covers costs including delivery. (RRP will be $74.95).

VAL WHATLEY Art Exhibition and Sale

This special exhibition and sale comes about because Val has moved to smaller premises: though her room at Deloraine’s Grenoch Home is, itself, a delightful gallery.

These 40 paintings span Val Whatley’s life as an artist from 1973 to 2010. Here is a great range of sizes and prices from the small oil ‘A glimpse of the wilds’ to the huge canvases ‘Cathedral Mountain’ (above) and ‘Sublime Tasmania’.

We invite you to purchase by simply calling Paul on 0419 839 157 for information or to secure the painting of your choice. At Val’s request, the prices are minimal.

Where: RED DOVE CAFE AND GALLERY adjacent the Pilgrim Uniting Church, 34 Paterson Street, Launceston, and online at this website.

When: Saturday 19th to Sunday 27th September 2020 10am-4pm except Sundays when opening hours are 1-4pm.

Entry: Free. Printed catalogues available at the door. There are 40 paintings available.
