GALLERY UPDATE - 12th March 2014

Dearest friends of Form gallery

It is hard to believe it is now March the first few months of the year have just flown by.

Over these months we have been very busy with many exciting things going on at the gallery. We have just returned from a trip to Wellington for the recent Art Fair and Symposium, Kete that coincided with the Wellington Arts Festival. This art fair saw a number of galleries travel to Wellington for this four day event. It was an exciting time for art lovers who relished the opportunity to see a number of galleries on display under the one roof.

In February we kicked off the exhibition program with an exhibition ‘elementsł’ by three local based ceramic artists. The talents of Kim Henderson, Jane McCulla and Akane Nakao were on display. This show celebrated the high calibre of ceramists we have in Christchurch. If you missed this show it’s not too late you can view pieces by clicking on the link below:

elements 3

We look forward to seeing more new exciting works from these three artists as the year progresses.

This month all new glass pieces by Garry Nash will be on show with his exhibition ‘Cultivate’. This is Nash’s first time exhibiting in Christchurch since 2010. Nash is one of New Zealand’s most renowned glass artists working with glass in all forms since 1978. For this show he has collaborated with his studio assistant, Claire Bell, who has been working with Nash for four years. The series of work on view combines both artists’ skills and talents to make a number of beautiful decorative pieces. We strongly encourage you to view these stunning pieces in person. This series of work refers to the art nouveau period and has a strong New Zealand reference with the use of stencilling of New Zealand native and introduced plants.

This month we celebrate all things made in New Zealand with New Zealand Made March. All pieces in the gallery are made by New Zealand artists and reflect the talents and skills of individuals in NZ. Please keep us in mind for all your gift purchases and support local industry and individuals by purchasing New Zealand made products for the month of March.

Come in and see us and support New Zealand made.
