"The Kapiti Invasion" Exhibition

posted 6 May 2013, 21:11 by Dana Jackson   [ updated 6 May 2013, 21:12 ]
Along with 38 Kapiti artists, we have combined forces to produce an outstanding exhibition.

It’s well worth a visit.
Think reinvented artworks like recycled Golden Syrup tins transformed into a saint’s robes, carved flowing Oamaru stone birds, paua embedded lighthouses made from Kapiti driftwood, a richly coloured ceramic rendition of an old Southward’s car, chain maille and steampunk jewellery, delicate and haunting Italian inspired handmade masks, abstract and realistic paintings, wood and glass creations plus more delightful works.

Emerging and renowned artists include Alan Wehipeihana, Debbie Pointon, Bodhi Vincent, Wendy Masters, May Iremonger, Sonia Savage, Jan Waterfield, Vinny Thompson, John and Edna Stuart, Phil Quinn, George Thompson, Olinka Heath, Kimbra, Donna Clarke Taylor, Joan Coleman and me.

The plan is that this may become a biannual event, with Hutt artists invading our shores next year.

The Odlin Gallery is open from 10am to 4pm daily at 9 Myrtle Street, Lower Hutt (a stone’s throw from the Dowse).

 “The Kapiti Invasion” exhibition runs until 12 May with free admission.
