Its October already! I am now about 5 weeks away from my solo show opening at Toi Pōneke Gallery in Wellington and my final hand in for my studies is about 3 weeks away- It’s all on! It’s a bit of a cliché but this year has gone so fast and I can’t believe its nearly the end of my residency, and studies after 4 years! well, 2 more months sorta.
I am happy to announce that my solo exhibition MOOP (Matter Out Of Place) will be open to the public from 20th November- 12th December at Toi Pōneke Gallery.
You can read more about the premise of the show if you follow this link for my media release http://wellington.govt.nz/your-council/news/2015/10/jewellery-artist-sees-potential-in-things-forgotten
I am in the stages of finishing up making, but it seems I create more work along the way. But, I have started making gifts for the participants that donated their sterling silver bits and pieces to the Trade to Treasure project. A thank-you gift seemed more reciprocal and fitting with the ethos of the project in the end, and they have been made from scratch using a combination of the donations that I received. I appreciate a personal touch and I hope my supporters do too!
More to come!
Will also update with details of Whitireia Graduate exhibition at Pataka, Porirua.
