New Exhibitions

Gisborne Artists' and Potters Group  

  19 August 2017 – 24 September 2017
    
Opening 5.30pm 18 August 2017

   Autumn Fantasy  by Heather Van Wyk

Painters can have a reputation for being reclusive. Unless they are inclined to draw or paint in public, no one but their immediate family or friends are likely to see them in action or results of their efforts.

The annual Gisborne Artists’ Society and Gisborne Pottery Group exhibition is an opportunity for artists to show the locals what they have been up to over the previous year.

Artists to look out for this year include landscape artists Roger Shanks and Graeme Nicoll. Erika Holden, who is well known on the local scene can be relied upon to submit art which is original and visually stimulating. Based in Tokomaru Bay, Philippa Knight creates beautiful paintings, which are often picked up quickly by the discerning art enthusiast. Two of Gisborne’s young, up-and-coming local artists to look out for are Amber Graham and Isabella Grant.

Artists enjoy producing art for the sake of it, but it is always more gratifying when others view and appreciate the end result. Make sure you pop in and check the exhibition out.
