Creative Calling: Barbara and David McCabe - A Retrospective


11 June - 24 July | Gallery 2 


An exhibition bringing together two artists, husband and wife Barbara and David McCabe, both long term advocates for artistic endeavour in Wangaratta.

This exhibition is a retrospective of their body of work; David focussing on the architectural form in the landscape through a series of drawings and watercolours, recording the presence of human inhabitation in the natural environment with pencil, paper and brush. These tools provide David with a means to describe nature and man’s impact on his environment, but not to create and yet that description is in effect,creation itself.

Barbara uses the medium of textile to bring a whimsical and colourful look on life, with techniques that encompass applique and machine embroidery. She works alone, with each artwork taking long periods of time, becoming a personal part of and an expression of herself.

A celebration of two artists who have made a lasting impact in our artistic community.
