30 October – 30 January 2022 | Foyer Gallery | Kaye McGarva plays with shadows creating trompe-l’oeil paintings of creases and folds with the intention of challenging the spectator’s perception. Her work is about the act of looking, creating uncertainty and provoking a physical sensation associated with seeing something familiar but strange. She wishes to encourage the viewer coming into the Foyer Gallery to slow down, take notice, and hopefully look at the world around them with new eyes.
4 December 2021 – 27 March 2022 | Holt Gallery | In late 1846 surveyor Thomas Brunner employed Māori guides Kehu and Pikiwati to travel with him from Nelson to Te Tai Poutini (the West Coast) and back again, searching for land suitable to expand settlements within the fledgling Nelson province. In Prospects Fearful Wellington-based artists Caroline McQuarrie and Shaun Matthews examine Brunner’s journey via the mediums of embroidery, photography and weaving.
18 December 2021 – 13 March 2022 | Main Gallery | This exhibition features visual artists, a writer and a documentary producer for whom surfing has been part of their life journey. Although connected by surfing, they haven’t been asked to create or exhibit ‘Surf Art’, but rather to interrogate the crossover in their passions, and contemplate through their practice and discussion the connection between these two creative and formative activities.
