The story behind the exhibition.

Two cousins with ancestral ties to the Wurdiboluc area are collaborating their artistic talents for a good cause.

Marlene Millard, daughter of Ian McConachy and Jan Harris, daughter of Mary Cavigan (nee McConachy) are both Visual Artists and although Marlene now lives in Rockhampton, Qld. and Jan lives in Deniliquin NSW, they are coming together to showcase a very personal Exhibition.

Initially the exhibition was to be a tribute to Marlene's Father Ian McConachy, who lost his battle with bowel cancer in 2012 and Sister Joanne who succumbed to cancer in 2000 at the young age of 43.

After Ians' passing Marlene began planning but needed to wait until the time was 'right'. Marlene then extended an invitation to cousin Jan, an accomplished Artist and also touched by the cancer curse having taken both parents.

The Exhibition is being held at the Aireys Pub, Aireys Inlet, opening daily at 11.30am from Saturday November 18th to Sunday 26th, with the official launch on Sunday November 19th at1 pm. Aireys Inlet was chosen because of the historical and ancestral relevance to the McConachy/Anderson family.

So with the common threads that bind, "Pigments In The Genes" will showcase approximately 40 artworks of various media with all subject matter being a personal story from Marlene & Jan. All artwork will be for sale with a percentage of sales being donated to the Fight Cancer Foundation.

The following images are the 20 Artworks by Marlene.

Jan will also be contributing 20 Artworks.
