While Wendy ponders the options for our new miniature acquisition, I took the opportunity to continue my (long standing) task of clearing out my laptop's hard drive before it declares itself completely full and falls over.
In the process I found a very large folder of photos I'd taken while in New Zealand in December 2015 (a trip that, it seems, didn't even rate a mention here. Perhaps that's the reason I didn't blog them back then?)
I wonder if another reason I didn't blog them was that some were rather fuzzy. But I've decided that fuzzy is better than not seen at all, and so, may I present an exhibition including the work of Bob Gerrard?The Parental Units and I stumbled across this exhibition on our standard trip to The Dowse in Lower Hutt:
The contents of the exhibition, although not quite my usual sphere of interest, were worthy of quite a few photos:
(I've since consulted Google and came up with some background information, which may be of interest...)Also in the exhibition were a number of paintings that the artist had made
some of which had a miniature bent to them...
And if that wasn't enough, we also found the following miniature works on display:Helen O'Connor, The Tin Years (2003),
Jim Cooper, Lovely Jesus (2006), and
Kate Fitzharris, I'm listening (2013).
