Friday 13-th October 2017 - OPENING October 14 – 29 - Splash 2017 Splash 2017 Exhibition Season at Academy Galleries 1 Queens Wharf, Wellington, NZ
This year’s Watercolour New Zealand Society's Annual Exhibition Splash® will be a joint exhibition, held in conjunction with Ceramicus, an exhibition by the Wellington Potters’ Association.
Guest artists for this year’s Splash will be Richard Bolton from Geraldine and Wellington artist Dianne Taylor. Richard moved from England to Geraldine in 2004. Early in his painting career his work attracted the attention of publishers. Richard is the author of a number of books on watercolour technique as well as articles in such well known periodicals as The Artist, Leisure Art and Artists and Illustrators. Dianne is a well known Wellington artist who won the Watercolour New Zealand Portrait Award in 2010 and the French Art Shop People’s Choice Award for her painting Le Café at last year’s Splash.
The exhibition promises to be one of the highlights of the Wellington visual arts calendar.
