Current and upcoming exhibitions and projects at the Lysaght Watt Gallery.
A Brush with Life
by Brenda & John Fawkner
Monday 4 February to Saturday 2 March
‘A Brush with Life’ is an exhibition by Brenda and John Fawkner. This show features a selection of paintings, drawings and prints inspired by Brenda and John’s love of travel around New Zealand and across the world.
John was born in Stratford, and has worn many different hats and achieved great successes during his lifetime. Brenda was born in New Plymouth, although her artwork is influenced by pilgrimages to sites of spiritual significance in various cultures.
An opening event will be held on Monday the 4th of February at 7 pm. Please bring a plate. Hope to see you there!
