For many years, the Kapiti Arts Trail has been a regular entry in my Exhibition calendar excepting very recently since this property was sold and I had no suitable Trail space to exhibit in. Each year my rather disgraceful ‘studio’ at Otaki Forks overlooking the river gorge, had to be cleared and repainted to transform it into a ‘Gallery’ through which hundreds of people ‘trailed’ each year. See below – it scrubbed up well!
I continued to paint (and sell my paintings) throughout these weekends while chatting to visitors and trying to explain what I was doing on the work-in-progress canvases on show, alongside those that were finished. Outside under the canopy of a large portico, additional paintings – along with a selection of Bruce Winter’s small sculptures, were exhibited. The Kapiti Arts Trails were always enjoyable occasions with excellent sales.
