Your Invitation to attend the exhibition opening

Stephanie Crisp - Impressions of New Zealand’s Harbours & Ports

OPENING: Saturday 29 September from 1pm
EXHIBITION SEASON: Saturday 29 Sept - Sunday 28 October

We welcome you to join us for the exhibition opening featuring new artworks by Stephanie Crisp. After a near sell out exhibition last year, Stephanie returns to Artspace Gallery for another exciting solo exhibition. Her work, often described as stunning, is beautifully constructed and balanced and often features her favourite subject to paint - boats and harbours. Stephanie just loves to paint impressions of wonderful boats and harbours and for this exhibition Stephanie has been inspired by the boatsheds which are almost on the gallery's doorstep, the Hutt River Mouth Boatsheds at Hikoikoi Reserve. She has created a lively and colourful collection of paintings that bring this area to life.

The scenes in her artworks are sculptural and sometimes industrial, the colours often lively and sometimes sombre. She paints in strong acrylic colour and loves the play of light and shade and shadows created in various shades of maritime greys and blues.

Stephanie will be flying up from Lyttleton especially for the opening, and she is looking forward to meeting our Artspace Gallery art lovers and talking about her art with you.

We look forward to greeting you at the Gallery from 1pm while you enjoy refreshments and live jazz in the friendly ambience of Petone's seaside gallery.
