When you explore the streets of Wellington, you’ll find nice little palaces everywhere.

There are buildings all across this city known as electricity substations. They power our lives and are a presence in every neighbourhood.

Some have operated for a century and many feature art inspired by the communities they serve. Yet, these striking structures are seemingly invisible.

Nice Little Palaces is a solo photography exhibition that brings them into the light and celebrates the important role they play in powering Pōneke. Come along for an electrifying experience!

Description

delimit is a group show of contemporary jewellers and jewellery adjacent practitioners. It features the work by 33 artists from across the motu. The artists have worked in a range of media exploring the concepts of interstitiality and liminality. If an object is a discrete form in a given state, then it stands to reason that it must have an ending, an edge or threshold, where said object and or its state ceases to be and something other begins, and between these beginnings and endings there must be a space, or a clearing, the smallest of intervals between things, a void, a new space, so that what is not there has the same weight as what is.

Painting has been a constant pursuit of all three of us women. We have known each other for many years and share similar viewpoints on life and the world around us. We chose to exhibit together as we all share a great joy in creating and wanted to share our creativity to a wider audience. We paint generally from a representative viewpoint but then we often wander from this into abstract form.

In our Exhibition we plan on providing inspiration for other emerging artists, especially those who have, or will shortly be, finishing study in the Creative disciplines.  We will be showing how it is possible for emerging artists to create their own artistic identities and unique styles of art, whilst staying true to themselves and their passion for creating. We will be showcasing high quality art which we hope will inspire others to get creative themselves.  Our artworks will portray objects and subject matter that convey our own unique personalities, emotions and interests. There will be artwork in a range of media including Glass, paintings, prints, ceramics, digital illustrations and bronze work.

There will be artists Involved in the exhibition present at all times, and many will be painting. Feel free to come along and ask any questions you might have.

Experience New Zealand through the eyes, minds and brushes of a group of enthusiastic plein air artists. En Plein Air is simply painting from life. In viewing these paintings you bear witness to not just a snapshot, but each artist's personal meditation on a landscape. In a typically short period of time (1-3 hours) the artist will grapple with changing colours, light and reflections to present a dynamic and spontaneous moment. Each painting has a unique story to its making, All recorded within the choices made and the brushstrokes themselves. They are a reminder, to be more observant of the wonderous ever-changing beauty that surrounds us. We are pleased to share these experiences with the New Zealand landscape with you at Thistle Hall, offer an opportunity engage with artists and perhaps come away with a desire to make your own.

Description

My artwork I think stems from a subconscious place that always makes more sense than the waking world. It is a pendulum swing of dark and disturbing to whimsical and joyful. My art is not necessarily bunched together in concepts. It is rather autonomous, each piece having its own story. What that story is, is up to the viewer...and the artist.

Opening Hours
Monday - Sunday, 10am - 5pm
Description

This exhibition is the culmination of a year-long drawing project. The artist's goal for 2021 was to make a small A6 ink drawing of the world around them.

"The sameness of the everyday also reveals shifts in the everyday. Far from being repetitive, each drawing reveals nuances in mood, atmosphere, artistic interpretation. The days I didn't draw are also revealing, the blank page is a question mark."

For the duration of the exhibition the artist will be making drawings of the gallery space, bringing the project to completion with an 'in situ', interactive experience.
