More than 100 people turned out to see the launch of Solveig’s “Colourful Mullumbimbians” portrait exhibition at the Empire on Thursday night.

The exhibition, which celebrates our community through the colourful characters that call Mullumbimby home, was well-received with performer Dannidoo Butterfly the crowd favourite.

The other portraits were comedy queen Mandy Nolan, actor/activist Tony Barry, singer-songwriter Rebecca Ireland, hitch-hiking life coach Shanti Ananda and environmental campaigner Paul Brecht.

The sitters for each of the portraits were in attendance, except for Tony Barry who Skyped in during the evening to announce the winner of a Solveig signature print.

Solveig was delighted with how the night turned out.

“The exhibition was a culmination of a year’s work. It was such a delight to see all those people enjoying gift to the community,” Solveig said.

“Now it’s time to get back to the studio.”

Special thanks to the Empire for hosting the event and providing delicious food, the Courthouse Hotel in conjunction with Coopers and Tobacco Road for providing drinks, and Mullum Mac for their technology support and organisation of the event.

    Love your work,and what a great place to be inspired to paint such wonderful characters.
    I would like to visit the area and absorb the vibrancy of colour and feeling of the spirit of the place
    I live in beautiful healesville and took up painting 18 months ago,it is a soothing pastime for my
    Restless mind to be lost in a world of colour,form and freedom of expression on canvas or board.
    I have been inspired by so many artistic people from so many different walks of life all on a journey
    To somewhere. It’s so calming to share the walk with like minded souls. Regards terry from toads hall
