Jeannette Swan

Yarliyil Art Centre Manager, Jeannette has a busy position coordinating all aspects of the centre, from administration and funding applications, to workshop scheduling and having canvases stretched. Yarliyil Art Centre has been running again under Jeannette for three and a half years and the art centre members are excitedly waiting for a building due to start construction soon, designed with a workspace, gallery, veranda and caretakers zone.

The Yarliyil Art Centre is producing traditionally informed works of art, mainly of landscape and animals, while artists are developing their own unique aesthetic styles. Jeannette wants to hold more successful exhibitions at Yarliyil Art Centre, “I want to bring new ideas back to Yarliyil Art Centre from the Emerging Leaders Program, for marketing, funding and how to be more active online.”

Jeannette attended the 2013 Emerging Leaders Symposium in Perth.
