I have often wondered how good it would be to have a solo exhibition. Now I know. It’s a lot of work but so rewarding, especially when it’s held in Hawera, the town of my birth. Monday night 8th November was opening night for my Watercolour Reflections, Past and Present exhibition. I have been preparing for this exhibition since February and it was a great opening night with lots of my whanau (extended family) there to support me.
While we were down in Taranaki I used some time to find a beach and sit and do some plein air drawing.
Such a relaxing time soaking in the sun and atmosphere of the region of my birth. On the road trip back home we called in to the Lockwood show homes in Rotorua which are currently hosting an exhibition of art within the show homes. It was lovely to see work from local artists and my own work.
Well another exhibition has been canceled for this year. Franklin Arts exhibition will now be held from the 4th -13th March 2022. Hopefully those dates will be successful ones for Auckland.
EVENTS coming up early next year will include an Open Studio at Auckland Anniversary weekend.
The Art Tour from 14th – 19th February, to the Bay of Islands and Franklin Arts now in March.
