Paraparaumu Tenth Annual Art Show

Last night we attended the opening night of the Paraparaumu Tenth Annual Art Show.
Although it is very much a local art show for the Kapiti Coast, there was a surprising level of good quality realist art among the over 300 paintings on show.

I was honoured to receive two awards.

Merit Award for 'Best Representation of the Kapiti Coast'  for "Kapiti"

Best Oil Painting of the Show for  "Forest"

The Show runs through the three days of Labour Day weekend (20th, 21st and 22nd October) and is at the Southwards Car Museum Auditorium.

Opening Home Studio Gallery to the Public

Increasing numbers of people have been coming to my home Studio Gallery and so I have been persuaded to open to the public on a limited basis.
The gallery will be open at weekends from 11am until 5pm.
6 minutes from Greytown over the railway line on Waiohine Valley Road
