Local artist Jacquie Tarr will be exhibiting “Sketches from Life” at the FNCC’s Restaurant La bonne table, starting on 17 July.

Jacquie Tarr, a freelance environmental consultant and journalist will present “Sketches from Life”, a variety of small watercolour paintings and sketches of animals, landscapes and still life, at the FNCC’s Restaurant La bonne table on 17 July 2014 at 18:30. All proceeds from the exhibition will be donated to the animal welfare project “Have-a-Heart”.
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.
