Spring Is Here - As one show is ending another will begin

Spring is here and as I am writing this blog it is the most delicious afternoon here at The Vivian Gallery.

Our current show, 'Ko taku Whare, to Whare Hoki' has only this week to run before it is de-installed. Sold art works will be packed up and delivered to their new homes to be enjoyed for a long time to come. For anyone who has not yet visited the exhibition take a drive to Matakana during the week or over the weekend, we are open 11am until 5pm everyday - except Tuesdays. It is a beautiful drive and the exhibition is very compelling, it is a real treat.

'Figuring it Out', the title of our next exhibition, is a Ceramic Show and opens on Saturday 24th of September. There will be an artists talk at 3.30pm followed by our usual relaxed opening with wine and locally brewed beer. This show is a bit special! It is curated by the renowned ceramic artist Bronwyn Cornish and includes a group of highly regarded women artist who all share a passion for clay and enjoy working with ideas around the figurative.

We are looking forward to installing this show next week. Below is a little sneak preview of a ceramic work by Christine Thacker

Thanks everyone

See you very soon
