Four local artists have come together again to present their “4 play with art” exhibition to be held at the Wanaka Masonic Lodge over Easter. Local artists Lizzie Carruthers, Sharlene Nyhon, Jenny Chisholm and Belinda Innes (pictured) will present their new works to the public at the exhibition.
The four friends have put together around 50-60 pieces which will be shown over five days. Belinda will be presenting abstract art, framed monoprints, cave drawings and miniature works.
Jenny specialises in relief carvings and will be showing her latest works in this genre.
Lizzie’s works are predominantly animal portraits and she is presenting famous people in animals and Sharlene specialises in oil landscapes.
“We fancy each other‘s company, playing around with art. We have a good laugh and are a good support network for each other,” Sharlene said.
The group’s art has grown over the time the four have spent together.
“It is interesting to observe other people’s progress. It is amazing how everyone has branched out and their work has changed and evolved. You are influenced by what is going on about you in your world,” Belinda said.
Belinda said Mason Gordon Girvan had been very obliging and generous.
“It is a great venue and we are really thankful for the opportunity to use the [Masonic Lodge] for the exhibition,” she said.
The free exhibition will open on Wednesday April 12 at 5pm with Maude Wine tastings and will be open Thursday April 13 to Easter Monday April 17 from 10am-5pm.
