Come to Creative Kāpiti for the 2018 Kāpiti Arts Trail
3 November 2018
October 27/28 and November 3/4
The Kāpiti Coast District Council has led the event for the last 17 years, and was recognised for the event in this year’s Local Government New Zealand Excellence Awards, as a finalist in the “Best Creative Place” category.
The Kāpiti Arts Trail was designed to showcase the significant creative talents in Kāpiti, both established and emerging artists, to the regional and wider community.
Each year, more and more Kāpiti Coast artists take the opportunity to welcome the public into their studios to experience the artists’ working environment and their passion for their art. This year, the number of participant artists and galleries topped 100 for the first time.
Echt Studio - Whetū van den Oever
Whetū has always been fascinated with animals and nature. She captures the essence of nature by zooming in on details and conveying the mercuriality of colours. Fascinated and attracted to the extraordinary, she digs deeper into the wonder of nature with every painting. This leads to both abstract and figurative paintings using mixed mediums. In turn, her work glimmers with quiet reflection and explodes with vibrant colours, multi-layered and honest, explicit and vague.
