Solo Exhibition: December 2019 – January 2020
There’s nothing disgraceful about Art Matakana Gallery who have exhibited and sold a lot of my work over the years. I love showing my work there. What IS mildly disgraceful is the time it took me to get the bare minimum number of paintings ready to hang by December 7. Months and months . . . still painting every day . . . in between swimming training lengths for the open sea King of The Bay’s swim from Milford to Takapuna which takes place on Auckland’s North Shore on the same day as the exhibition opens . . . and the dreaded wet-suit goes public for the first time (see my Wetsuit Wedgie post if you must) but does not go public at the Gallery opening of course. Don’t be silly! The blue painting below is Haze Over Bay of Islands at 1000mm square and the red one used for the exhibition flyer is Southern Vista 1500mm x 800mm.
Art Matakana Gallery is one of my favourite places to exhibit and over the last decade, my work has been featured successfully in solo exhibitions there virtually every year. Forty minutes north of Auckland in a semi-rural location the Gallery is a huge barn-like space which show-cases my work to perfection. See www.artmatakana.com.
