OPENING NIGHT ATTRACTS A CROWD

Family business opens to local artists
PHAEDRA PYM
WITH lengthy waiting lists for art exhibition space inhibiting many local artists from showcasing their works, one long established local family business has decided to open its doors to help.
Established in 1973 at East Gosford, Lemon Tree Framing hosted its first exhibition recently for local artist and senior Visual Arts teacher at Central Coast Grammar School, Linda Tebbs. 
 
The opening night attracted 70 visitors and resulted in the sale of seven of the twenty artworks on display on the night.
 
Ms Tebbs, whose first solo exhibition, ‘Satellite’ featured a series of works painted in acrylic pigment, ink and resin, said:
 
“My family and I moved to the Central Coast from the Northern Beaches 17 months ago and I have been supported in my artistic endeavours by the Stanley family who own Lemon Tree Framing and Gallery ever since. It really is such a positive reflection of this community when local artists have the support of galleries like Lemon Tree to show their work.”
 
Lemon Tree Framing proprietors Richard and Lynsey Stanley purchased the business from previous owners Ron and Pam Gerrish seven years ago. 
 
Richard, an award-winning landscape photographer and his wife Lynsey have since updated the equipment, renovated and expanded the gallery, and introduced new services, all with a view to better serve the needs of local artists and lovers of art. 
 
“We had been approached by our regular artists to see if they could exhibit with us and, after looking into the available exhibition space on the Coast, we realised there were lengthy waiting lists and decided to look into how we could help,” said Ms Stanley.
 
“We also realised that most budding artists don’t have the luxury of giving up their day jobs and as other spaces require the artist to be present throughout the duration of the exhibition, they find it difficult to show their work let alone sell it.” 
 
The Stanleys and their staff manage the more than 75m2 gallery space and facilitate sales of the artwork on behalf of exhibiting artists. 
 
This gives artists the freedom to get on with their lives and the peace of mind knowing the artwork is achieving maximum exposure and the best of care.
