limited edition, fine art reproduction of original oil painting by late Neil Sheppard, 120 x 60 cm, stretched canvas archival pigments, museum quality, $1400
Neil Sheppard [Shep] was one of five Kangaroo Island artists who collaborated in an Art Feast tradition for eight consecutive years at Sunset Winery in an art show curated by Fleur. It was the first of more than 20 collaborations to exhibit his vibrant painting including the sell-out Colours of Ozone in 2006, eighteen month solo exhibition Shep On Dauncey in 2008 and Shep in Relief which raised more than $7K for Overseas Children’s Aid Association.
It was therefore natural that when Fine Art Kangaroo Island was established Shep would be and continues to be a feature artist. Neil was a flamboyant generous artist who passed away in September 2015 and we within the arts, and wider Island community miss him deeply. Together with wife Liz, we are proud to offer newly released limited edition fine art reproductions of Neil’s most distinctive paintings on paper or stretched canvas. This project has been planned for a number of years and Neil was able to supervise much of the initial colour proofing. Contact the Gallery for a full catalogue of works on paper and canvas.
