Cable Bay Winery on Waiheke Island
Currently on exhibition outside we have a range of works from artists including Phil Price, Kon Dimopoulos, Gregor Kregar and many others. In the Artspace we have worked with John Leech Gallery (www.johnleechgallery.co.nz) on an exhibition of Michael Hight works (Parihaka Road, 2009 featured above). Hight is a self taught artist whose preferred medium is oil on canvas. Set with an archetypal New Zealand rural landscape, stacks of hives become the main protagonist within each scene. Seasonal, geographical and compositional variations are explored which allow the artist to negotiate subtle nuances in light, tone, composition and intensity of hue. Hight’s paintings are technically sophisticated and meticulous in their attention to detail.
The Cable Bay Artspace and general grounds are open for casual visitors from 12noon until 5pm everyday. More here
For Gregor Kregar, sculpture is not just something to observe and he often combines scale, materials and imagery to remind us of our presence and existence. “Much of my sculpture, including this work, is meant to trigger ideas and get people thinking and talking about how we use space – to think about why and how we build”.
Graham Bennett’s works often invite exploration of actions or conditions, perhaps prompting thoughts beyond physical attributes and forms to speculation about cultural or social situations.
20th May 2010:
Mike Morgan moves to a new property in Waihi next week. As Alex Stone, Gulf News columnist and this weeks Guest editor writes:
“It’s a good-sized long-drop out the back”. This is the official reason Mike Morgan is giving for his move next week, to a new property in Waihi.
The other reason, of course, is that extra studio space for Waiheke’s artist laureate, has simply become unaffordable. So a great charater must leave us. We will miss him.
His cast of characters, with their funny shadows, improbable knees and oddball activities, will now take flight with him, and inhabit that strange space created by the hole where a hill used to be.
Let’s send him and Lucy, the car with flames on her side, into their new adventures in the finest style we can muster.
Bold seascapes in uplifting colours celebrate the dramatic coastal landscape of Waiheke Island, New Zealand. Artist Jennifer Fountain uses resounding turquoises, blues, lush greens and golds to capture the peninsulas, inlets and vistas of her island home.
Connell’s Bay Sculpture Park Connell’s Bay
Our vision is to unite art and nature by planting sweeps of native trees and creating special spaces for site-specific commissioned New Zealand sculpture.
Viewing these awe-inspiring art works on a guided walk in this environment is an experience to be treasured. Open by prior appointment only, mid October to mid April. Bookings are essential and children must be supervised.
Gwen has plenty of work on display. Her works are mainly bold and colourful acrylics of local land and seascapes with native foliage in the foreground.
