Doris Golder is a renowned local artist whose rural paintbox consists of one of Lockhart Shire's most historical and important resources - wool.

The Doris Golder Art Gallery within Green's Gunyah Museum in Lockhart, houses 26 portraits constructed between 1982 and 1993 using naturally coloured sheep’s wool.

Washed, combed and undyed, Doris has been using naturally coloured wool to create an amazing array of landscapes and portraits since the early 1980s. From Slim Dusty and Greg Norman to Bob Hawke, Tim Fischer and many more famous faces, Doris has captured their very essence by using this unique and highly skilled medium.

Also on display is as well as local landscapes and her well deserved Order of Australia Medal. This amazing gallery of her work is a must see.
