exhibitions 

Every 6 weeks (we call them Blocks), we refresh the artwork in the main gallery so that art-lovers and visitors see fresh displays and new pieces each time they visit. In the studios, the artists and their displays change even more frequently.

What's on now:

In The Gallery

From January 6 through to February 15, about 20 Wairarapa artists are offering work in the gallery area for display and for sale.

 

In the retail area, displays feature ceramics, woodwork, prints, cards and more. There are great options in both areas for that special gift 

In Studio 1

Printmaker Sandie Fletcher is to be found in Studio 1 until January 25. Call in to meet her see her at work.

"During my time in studio 1 I'll be working on development of pieces for my upcoming solo show in April, at the Miracle Room in Featherston. I'm a linocut printmaker who loves dogs, so much of my work portrays the dogs I meet everyday. 

I find the ConArt Studios fantastic for getting projects moving. Working, talking about and sharing ideas with visitors is really inspiring." - Sandie Fletcher

 

In Studio 2

Studio 2 features Lester Blair through until January 31.

"The still life paintings I am presently making, are composed with the intention of having no meaning. They are composed to convey a state of something existing and being there only to be looked at. 


I avoid if possible any narration or story telling, attempting always to make something to encourage contemplation, hopefully a feeling of restfulness and just being." - Lester Blair

Looking ahead...

From February 15, the next set of work for 2021 (Block 2) will be on display in the main gallery.

Coming soon in Studio 1: Jo Bridgewater from January 26th

Coming soon in Studio 2: Jane Sinclair from February 1st
