VAL WHATLEY tribute book offer and exhibition.

The exhibition and book offer are now over.

Thank you everyone! Val Whatley’s exhibition has been a complete sellout. Not a painting left!

The few remaining books are available from Petrarchs Bookstore in Launceston and Southern Swan Bookshop in Cygnet (RRP $75).

And maybe a couple on Bob’s website.

The highlight of our exhibition was Val’s visit to see it all on Saturday.

Due to the kindness of a LGH doctor who offered to accompany her, Val was able to spend an hour at the Red Dove Cafe and hear how much her paintings are appreciated.
Thanks again everyone. Getting Val’s work out far and wide has been a great pleasure. Her paintings and books will give people a great deal of pleasure for years to come.

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!

VAL WHATLEY Art Exhibition and Sale

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.
