MTAS Gallery July Feature Artist – Jeff Eyles

Musson Lane Gallery
July Feature Artist – Jeff Eyles

We are very pleased to show Jeff Eyles as our feature artist at Musson Lane Gallery for the month of July. 

Jeff has always been an artist at heart and has spent many happy hours on weekends creating art while pursuing his career. After retirement, he completed more formal training at TAFE and has engaged more fully in his art.  

Jeff mostly uses Watercolour and Oils in his paintings and also creates linocut printmaking and etchings. He often paints “en Plein Air” (in the open direct from nature or the urban landscape) using skills he has practiced for most of his life.

He is attracted first by the play of light and shade of his subjects. The focus of his art is the light that illuminates the subject and the memories and impressions from his many travels. He always strives to create something visually exquisite and is particularly happy when a viewer sees something moving and beautiful in his work. 

Jeff is a member of Macquarie Towns Arts Society and is a category prize winner in 2020 and 2021.

He is based in the Nepean District of Sydney at the base of the Blue Mountains and is a member of the Nepean Art Society, currently its President.

He regularly exhibits with MTAS, Nepean, and other Art Societies as well as other group exhibitions and also solo in galleries mostly in Western Sydney and the Blue Mountains. His art is currently held in private collections in Australia, England, and the United States.

Jeff has his art in Cobbitty Gallery and on Bluethumb.

Come and visit to view Jeff’s beautiful array of artworks this Saturday, 16th July from 10am-4pm. CovidSafe practices are in place at our Gallery.
