So looking forward to getting back in the studio again, it’s been so busy over these last few weeks. It has flown by in its own strange way. As we all move onto the next stage of this journey, stay safe, be kind, create!
All of a sudden it’s winter, following a full on summer of island creativity with Perpetual Guardian Sculpture On The Gulf, Sculpt Oneroa, a wonderful selection of exhibitions at the Waiheke Community Art Gallery, other gallery spaces and studios on Waiheke.
One of the stunning pieces from Sculpure on the Gulf, Te Werowero – The Ongoing Challenge, a bronze sculpture created by Waiheke artist, Chris Bailey was successfully secured by the island community and stays at the wharf greeting visitors and residents alike at the entryway to the island. Check out the story here: Te Werowero
April was spent in Norfolk UK, experiencing a gorgeous spring there taking in the famous Norfolk ‘light’ and viewing a lot of the local art. Spent two full days at the Sainsbury Centre which was very stimulating and inspiring, especially the current Magnum exhibition “The Body Observed’
This year the Winter Arts Festival over Queens Birthday Weekend took a break as it’s been ten years since the first one. Many of the island artists however had their studios open over the long weekend including us up here on a beautiful quiet Monday. (see the link above)
Studio hours are still Monday & Tuesdays 11 – 4 although it pays to check in with a phone call first in case we’re out and about doing winter jobs during these shorter days.
We’re busy prepping for the Winter exhibition inspired by Matariki! so visit this page again soon for more updates – very exciting! If you would like to exhibit in the gorgeous Little Room, just drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Only a couple of weeks away! We’re all busy getting ready for Queens Birthday weekend and looking forward to visitors up at Trig Hill! This year Paula Richa, Sarah Morrison and Lyndsay Meager will be joining me in sharing a colourful collection of large format landscapes, textile mixed media works, life drawings and jewellery. Tickets are just $15 each from the Waiheke Community Art Gallery, tickets are valid for the whole weekend including the popular Sunday Soirée and silent auction, always a highlight of the festival! Cant’t wait, it’s going to be fun!
