Exhibition for animal welfare
Tarr draws inspiration from nature and global environmental issues. For her representational semi-abstract and abstract paintings she uses charcoal, watercolour, acrylic, pen and mixed media. Tarr has participated in several group exhibitions since the late 1980’s. This is her first solo show.
“Sketches from Life” exhibition will be a fundraiser for the Namibian Have-a-Heart project, a non-profit animal welfare organisation that encourages responsible pet ownership and offers spay and neuter services to pet owners with little or no income.
Tarr has worked in Swaziland as a research field assistant to a biologist and an archaeologist. In 2011 she contributed to a group exhibition fundraiser at the Windhoek International School organised by Namibian artist Helena Brandt. “I have not had much opportunity to study art formally but get great pleasure and inspiration from reading about and observing the works of Courbert, Frank Auerback and local artists such as Susan Mitchenson and the late Fritz Krampe and my art has been bought for private collections in Namibia, the UK, USA, Germany and South Africa” she said.
