Artist finds inspiration LISTINGS: Northart Gallery, The pre-Christmas $100 (or less) Show, November 8 to December 5 Lake House Arts Centre, The 5 Of US, November 9 to 28 Flagstaff Gallery, Glassification by Nejat Kavvas, November 11 to December 7 Natural talent: Jo Lawrence-King's painting, girl's bare feet on beach, will be one of many on show. Jo Lawrence-King has now discovered she can paint despite being told at school more than 30 years ago that she had no talent . Shetookupartasa hobby at age 40 with the encouragement of profes- sional artist Claire Hey. Five years later, the Greenhithe resident is holding her first solo exhibition, Beach Life, Kiwi Style in the Outer Gallery at the Depot Art- space. She says she has her mentor Claire to thank. I had very little self- belief but Claire gave me encouragement, support and a safe place to give art another go, she says. Claire says she feels sad when people say that they can t draw or paint. If you can make shapes with a pencil then you can draw. You just need to trust and enjoy the process, she says. Jo is holding her exhi- bition after winning a sponsorship from a group of seven artists called the Magpies. The Magpies collabor- ated in an exhibition at the Depot Artspace in 2009. They wanted to support an emerging art- ist to hold his or her first solo exhibition using some of the proceeds of their own exhibition. Beach Life, Kiwi Style will be held at the Depot Artspace in Devonport from November 13 to 25. Claire Hey will be part of a group exhibition, Sewing the Seed for a Textural Garden, in the main gallery at the same time.
