LXXX - An Artist in the Making
Please join us at The Vivian in Matakana from 4-6pm on Saturday 8th September for a special community celebration to mark the opening of an inspirational show of work by legendary Matakana potter Anthony Morris.
The title reflects a recent birthday by Ant, who at 80-year's old, is still practicing his craft in his studio – and never seems to tire.
From Melbourne... to Matakana. We're so excited to have the opportunity to show the delightful work of one of Australia's most original and magical ceramicists in the Studio Gallery.
A small group of Stephen's signature small statues has crossed the Tasman for the very first time for this unique NZ show, in collaboration with the team at Niagara Galleries in Melbourne.
1.30pm, Sunday 9th September.
Ivan Lupi is an internationally renowned performance artist whose bold, often confronting, yet deeply moving practice has seen him invited to perform across the world. Often using his body as a framework for his research, X is no different. Inspired by the 125th anniversary of Women's Suffrage in NZ, participation is encouraged, as this will be one to remember.
Get ready for something special as Iain takes over the gallery for a visceral adventure of visual and verbal discovery – as well as his new poetry book launch!
