THE property of Kilburnie is known for its uncovering of historic tales, from ghost time stories to old stone roads, but now the owners have uncovered another special historic piece.
Relatively unseen paintings from artist Ruby Campbell were uncovered.
Gladstone regional Art Gallery curator, Jo Duke, visited Kilburnie last Friday to borrow the recently discovered paintings of Ruby Campbell's for an upcoming exhibition of the late artist's work.
Jo and the former curator of Gladstone Gallery, Pamela Whitlock, have organised an exhibition of Ruby's art, currently held by the gallery, but they were quite excited to learn there were paintings inherited by Ruby's family.
The new paintings show the artist had experimented with different mediums such as acrylic and oils.
Ruby, 1888 - 1977, is known for her watercolours, etchings and drawings in various mediums.
These new works show that, in the 1960s, she had begun dabbling with other styles and illustrate her diverse range or talents and her love of art.
The paintings had belonged to Ruby's niece Sheila Daly.
Upon Sheila's passing, the paintings were inherited by Heather Stewart, another one of Ruby's nieces and owner of the artist's birthplace Kilburnie.
The exhibition of her works at the Gladstone Gallery will run from April 12 to May 10.
