Summer 2021 and into 2022!

Summer is on it’s way and the traffic light system is all go! Cant wait to get stuck in to a new group of works so overdue!

We’ve been flat out down at the Waiheke Community Art Gallery during all the various stages of lockdown so  bring on the summer shows!

The Waiheke Art Map 2022 will be available following the opening of the Art Map Artists show on  19 December, it’s getting big, and a few more studios out Onetangi way which is great! Watch this space!

Staysafe everyone and Be Kind!

 

Quick Catch Up!

Well, where did the time go? ….. now after another lockdown at Level 4, hopefully the team of 5 mill is getting on top of this latest outbreak ! Haven’t been posting very much as have been so busy at work, however very excited about getting back into the studio soon.

The Members Show is up at the Waiheke Community Art gallery at the moment. Locked in you could say! – however,  it is available to see online. Check out new work, Night Swimming – Galactic Core.

Also, the Artist in Residence  Bronwen Newbury has her exhibition ‘Falling Light’ online, absolutely beautiful work.

We’re getting ready to produce the next Waiheke Art Map 2022, soooo looking forward to summer!

Kia Kaha everyone, stay safe and see you soon!

News and events!

Well what a summer, intermittent lockdowns, in between the island is a flurry of events and activities engaging the domestic market to come along and visit.

I’m really looking forward to a quiet winter creating with a list a mile long from trips to the South Coast of the Wairarapa, Rakiura Stewart Island and around Waiheke.

Winter is a time to hunker down and back into the garden, always a source of inspiration and peace, and looking forward to a bit of rain!

Visit again soon for a more detailed schedule of  events and new works, until then, keep creating!

Spring at the Studio

Spring is here!

Really looking forward to working on a new suite of works and schedule of exhibitions at the studio and a quiet pop up in downtown Auckland. The 2021 Art Map is underway and exciting new shows at the Waiheke Community Art Gallery!

Summer Studio days and Stargazing Nights

It has been an extraordinary few months of hot dry weather, great for the beach and fantastic sunsets. (Looking forward to a bit of rain tho’! :))

Pop into the studio this weekend on the way up to Peacock Sky’s Trig Hill Craft and Music Fair this Sunday March 1.

If the weather keeps up it’ll be another sunset session on the deck and Stargazing later on in the evening. Glorious!
