Gallery Update August 2017


Our dearest clients


The shortest day of the year has long since passed, and as we look forward to Spring and sunshine I think this may be a good time to update you on the recent events here at Form Gallery, as well as inform you of what’s to come. As always, we would like to first and foremost thank you, the customers, we are honoured by your continued support of both the artists and our gallery.


We are in for a later night than usual tonight as First Thursdays Christchurch is back! First Thursdays is a free, all ages arts and entertainment event that takes place twice per year. Many Sydenham shops and boutiques will be open between 5-9pm and Colombo Street will be abuzz with night markets, food stalls, live music, buskers, activities and retail; the Sydenham area is seeing constant development - particularly in the arts scene - so this is a great opportunity to investigate what has been happening, enjoy the atmosphere, and help support an important aspect of our rebuilding city. A special exhibition will be on display at Form Gallery for the evening: Form 150 - a selection of affordable artworks for under $150. On display for this special exhibition will be: jewellery by Koji Miyazaki, Sophie Divett and Martin Milligan; ceramics by Amanda Shanley and Renee Boyd; and glass by Chris Jones and Peter Viesnik. All of our usual stock will also be on display and available for purchase. We hope to see you there!


There are several exciting exhibitions on the horizon, all to be held in the exhibition area of our gallery. First we are hosting Anneke Bester for a solo exhibition of news Bronze works; Anneke’s show - entitled “Revealing” - starts on the 9th of August with an opening evening at 5:30pm. Anneke’s recent works have been inspired by the fine balance created in ballet poses. In focusing the viewer on the classical lines created by these poses, she strips the figures down to the essence of form and exaggerates the energy and fine balance within the figure. In doing so, she brings the old fashioned back with a fresh life using vibrant patinas making, the pieces fit with the most cutting edge in designer interiors. Following that we have Kate McIntyre’s ceramic exhibition “To the Tideline” and then a group show featuring sculptors Matthew Williams and Anna Korver in October.


The team at Form Gallery would like to thank all of those who have made our last few exhibitions so successful: Doug Neil’s stone sculptures, Jane McCulla’s ceramics and Peter Collis’ pottery exhibitions were all beautiful and enjoyable. The artists and gallery staff alike are very appreciative of the Christchurch arts community and their support. It has been a lot of fun updating our followers through online means such as Instagram, Facebook and our online store; we know the public has been enjoying seeing photos of new arrivals and keeping up-to-date with what we have available, as well as staying informed of upcoming exhibitions and events.


We would like to remind everyone of our current opening hours, as these have changed in recent months. The hours are: Tuesday-Saturday, 10am-5pm. Additional viewing times can be arranged with us if you wish, please feel free to contact the team here at Form at anytime by email: info@form.co.nz or phone: 03 377 1211. For more information about anything mentioned above, please visit www.form.co.nz or check out our Facebook page. On a personal note, I would like to respectfully thank our customers and artists for helping me feel welcome at Form Gallery, learning the ropes has been enjoyable and I’m sure learning to make jewellery will be equally as enjoyable – if all goes well you might even see my work on display at our Workshop @468 exhibition towards the end of the year!


We look forward to seeing you in the coming few weeks.


Regards, Ryan and the rest of the Form team.
