Pauline Gough and Kathleen Reynolds
Susan Taylor, Pat Mortensen and Heather Carrigan
Opens Thursday 8 November at 5.30pm
Five artists, all friends, are embarking on a creative journey travelling with their art from their usual artistic home in Muddy Waters Gallery in Dargaville over to the East and Mangawhai Artists Gallery. Susan Taylor explained ‘we wanted to exhibit at the awesome Mangawhai Artists gallery and share our art and our story with our artist friends in Mangawhai’.
The five women are members of both Dargaville Arts Association and Mangawhai Artists Inc and are actively involved in the many creative endeavours both art organisations offer; Easter Art Trail in Mangawhai, Kaipara Art Awards, Members Exhibitions and recently Susan and Kathleen Reynolds had a dual exhibition in the Dargaville Muddy Waters Gallery.
This exhibition will be a visual feast because each artist has her own style and the art of each one is much loved and sought after. A taster of what you can expect to see:
Pauline Gough paints large vibrant colourful paintings, mainly in acrylics of subjects she loves; cows, roosters, landscapes and more.
Patricia Mortensen paints in acrylics and loves to depict her impressions of the local landscapes. She also does reverse painting on glass and her recent entry to the Kaipara Art Awards had wow factor with many intrigued by the technique.
Heather Carrigan’s Flax and Fibre works are beautiful! The colours, textures, skill and flair always thrill when people see her kete, flowers and more. Woven from the haraheke that grows on her property, Heather’s work is a real manifestation of home.
Kathleen Reynolds paints in oils and captures the beauty and character of our native birds and lovely landscapes on canvas.
Susan Taylor paints in acrylics and watercolours often in a realist style or semi impressionistic style. She captures the mood and feel of place, the charm and loveliness of where we live.
Susan and Kathleen are also involved with White Rock Gallery, based at the Matakohe Kauri Museum, yet another gallery – demonstrating just how vibrant and creative we are in the Kaipara.
