Barry and Lucy McCann – a rare team

Gold Coasters have a rare opportunity to view some of the highly acclaimed work of Barry and Lucy McCann at Hillier and Skuse Gallery.

The first thing you notice when you meet the McCanns is the ‘we factor’ that exists between them, the second is their humility.  Although they are both full time individually successful professional artists, Lucy and Barry McCan are a devoted husband and wife team who both aim to produce quality paintings that appeal to lovers of fine art.
