GALLERY UPDATE - October 2013
Dearest friends of Form gallery
We hope you are enjoying the long summer evenings ahead of you.
This October Form gallery celebrated a milestone with its twentieth anniversary .We take this as an opportunity to look back on the journey of the gallery has taken over these twenty years. Life began in Chancery Lane in 1993 nine years later in 2003 Form gallery moved locations and was housed within the Christchurch Art gallery Te Puna Waiwhetu where it remained until February 2011. After the earthquake Form took refuge in the director of the gallery Koji Miyazaki’s home for 16 months. A little over a year ago Form gallery found its new home at 468 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The location may have changed but the vision remains the same which is to support and promote the talents of our local and national object artists. Form gallery hopes to continue doing so for many years to come.
We would like to acknowledge the people who made this all possible the Christchurch public and the many visitors to the gallery. Without your support over the last twenty years this milestone would have been possible. Thank you for your generous contribution to the gallery.
The exhibition for October, ‘Twenty years’ celebrates the journey of the gallery. ‘Twenty years’ is an exhibition that gives thanks to the artists whose artistic careers have spanned these 20 years since the gallery first opened. The artists chosen for this exhibition have contributed significantly to the gallery over these twenty years and continue that trend today. The artists who make up this show are sculptor Doug Neil, ceramic artist Steve Fullmer and John Parker, glass artist Merryn Jones and three jeweller artists Tania Patterson, Lynn Kelly and Koji Miyazaki.
Next month Dominic Burrell will have a solo glass show at the gallery. Dominic will produce all new works for his exhibition ‘Marquette’. Dominic is known to push the boundaries of glass blowing with his innovative glass pieces.
Thank you once again
