Peter was born in Broken Hill and currently lives in coastal New South Wales. He has been painting professionally for over 20 years. His trips to Europe, particularly France, are usually taken in the winter so he can capture the moodiness of a cold, rainy day. However this year he is going in Autumn and will return with a new palette. Peter has annual exhibitions with leading galleries in Sydney and Melbourne.

John Downton was awarded the OAM for services to visual arts as a landscape and maritime artist and for services to the community IN 2017.
John re-trained as an artist in 1973, after many years as a watchmaker.
“When all the electronics came in I had to retrain as something and I thought I may as well retrain in something I like,” John said.
“That was 48 years ago and I’m still painting seven days a week – Christmas Day is my annual leave.”
John has exhibited work in Sydney, Melbourne, Ireland, Japan, Korea and America.
He spent 15 years travelling across rural Australia with renowned artist Leonard Long, painting the rugged landscapes he explored.
John is also the official artist for the Fleet Air Arm Museum in Nowra, with the gallery named in his honour in 2014.
Between 1999 and 2000 he travelled to East Timor and painted around 50 pieces depicting the naval and peacekeeping activities.
When he’s not painting, John spends a lot of time judging at regional shows. He has judged many exhibitions, including the Sydney Royal Easter Show, Nowra Show, Kiama Art Show and Bega Valley Art Awards.
Born in Sydney in 1939, John studied at the Royal Art society of NSW under the tutelage of Kenneth Green, Allan Hanson, Arthur Murch and George Duncan.
He was the first artist ever to be invited to exhibit at the Mitchell Library in Sydney. Invited by the Irish to hold a one man exhibition in Dublin as part of Dublin’s official “Cultural City of Europe” celebration. John is a member of the Australian Society of Marine Artists and the Royal Art society of NSW.
John Carey Downton remains true to the integrity of his art, delighting us with his sense of colour and light, capturing the spirit of the vast, rugged Australian landscape, the glorious majesty of the mountains and the subtle tranquility of the rural countryside.

Betina has always loved painting and drawing including the human figure. Her style is contemporary impressionism. She has agreed to once again be our art tutor in France for our 9th trip. Her subject matter is varied - street scenes, maritime art and portraits for which she takes commissions. She is a very fine artist preferring to paint from life to give her paintings vitality.
