Living Colour! tours to New Zealand in January 2015 to two gallery venues:

  • Northart Gallery, Auckland, New Zealand: Wednesday 28 January (opening 6pm) – 11 February 2015.  Gallery hours: 10am – 4pm daily (closed Friday 6 February).

Come along to the curator floor talks at 12.30-1pm Tuesday, 20 January 2015 (Palmerston North) and 6pm and Wednesday 28 January (Auckland) when some of the local artists will also be in attendance.  There are five New Zealand-based artists participating in the exhibition and their work is featured on this invitation:

Living Colour at Grenfell Art Gallery

Visitors from far and wide are enjoying the Living Colour exhibition at Grenfell Art Gallery, Grenfell, New South Wales.  Here is a report from Charlene of Harden:

I was totally stunned by the quilts, both Living Colour and your own.  The photos I’d seen barely did them justice, the subjects just jumped off the wall, the colours are so vibrant, and the different interpretations were interesting as well…  Friends tease me because I save tiny pieces of fabric, now I can show them your quilts and demonstrate what magic can be done with them.
Thank you so much for putting these exhibitions together, and if I get a chance to get back to Grenfell while they’re still there I will surely go.  I hope they continue to make people happy during the rest of their travels, and when I see the photos I will remember how much better the real quilts were, and see them again in my mind.

The exhibition continues until 20 December 2014.  Gallery hours: Tuesday – Friday 10am-4pm and Saturday: 9.30am-12pm.

Grenfell Art Gallery is calling for expressions of interest from individuals and groups of artists for 2015 exhibitions.  See Arts OutWest for further information.  EoIs closed on 22 December 2015.
