Fairfield Advance reported that there are eight artists from Fairfield City Art Society who contributed to Fairfield Revealed exhibition and Lorraine Maggs helped pull it all together.

From the built environment, old and new, to parks and the creeks that flow through it, the city is celebrated in its beauty and ugliness in Fairfield Revealed, which is showing at Fairfield Museum and Gallery until June 21.

At the young age of 11 Maggs realised that she wanted to be an artist. She became a visual arts teacher for 35 years.

Maggs work at the Fairfield Revealed exhibition is about living on Orphan School Creek and the flooding she witnessed.

“I’ve witnessed three floods, two major and one minor, so that’s what I’ve explored in my work,” Maggs said.

As an artist she believes that it’s important not to overdo any artworks.

“Don’t overdo what you’re doing. Don’t over paint, don’t over draw, don’t over print.”
