This is a show of paper works from 7 of our artists - Daniel Phillips, Emma Lou, David Wong, Jamie Allison, Piotrus Knap, Farish Ali and Denise Dennehy. It is curated by Denise Dennehy and is bright, playful and varied.
It showcases a multitude of styles with moments of play, experimentation and freedom that working on paper allows. It features a range of mediums from the classic felt tip, to pastel and ink. All items are available to purchase by contacting us directly.

We are Alpha Art Studio and we are a group of creative adults who have Intellectual Disabilities or Sensory Impairments. From our studio space in central Wellington we practise our art. We undertake art workshops (scrap-booking, jewellery, 3D, printmaking, etc). We do a range of activities that make life more fun (drama, dancing, horse-riding) and also encourage our personal development (cooking classes, computers and literacy). We volunteer for various organizations ( Wellington City Mission, Meals on Wheels), and we often work on different projects and with various groups that see us active in our communities!
We have recently opened a gallery space at the front of our building called "Alpha Gallery" we are excited that this is a way to learn valuable real life skills like customer service and cash handling, whilst having the chance to exhibit our work frequently in a professional gallery alongside artists from the wider community.
We welcome you to come up and have a look at our space and at our gallery. We also have a meeting room for hire, an accessible toilet (with a hoist!), and always something cool going on.
