Celebrating 100 years of Forest & Bird, the Wellington F&B Branch are holding a group exhibition at Thistle Hall! Running from Tuesday 25 to Saturday 29 July, 2023, and featuring creations by local Wellingtonians - wall art, prints, jewellery, books, cards, and more!
Exhibiting are Judi Lapsley Miller, Rachel Walker, Julia Brooke-White, Carol Theologo, Vaune Mason, Gillian Candler, Shawna Chow, Helen Casey, and Margaret Tolland.
I'm exhibiting some special pieces all celebrating birds that I find in my suburban Wellington garden. There are some brand new framed artworks featuring kākā, tūī, and pīwakawaka, including "The Muse (kākā)", pictured. And some special first edition and artist proof prints that I've mounted onto boards and finished with hand-painted impasto, giving textured brushstrokes and a unique finish. I'll also be showing a range of framed TinyArt pieces, prints, and greeting cards.
Proceeds support the Wellington Branch mahi in preserving local ecosystems.
Thistle Hall is on the corner of Cuba and Arthur Streets in Wellington, and the show runs from 10am to 4pm each day, with a late night on Friday to 7pm.
