Your Invitation

To Attend the Opening of 'Our Coast in Oils' by Shane Prouting

Saturday 23rd March from 1 - 5pm

We welcome you to join us for the opening of Shane Routing's exhibition this Saturday afternoon, his first solo exhibition in the Wellington region. Meet the artist whilst enjoying refreshments and live jazz in the friendly ambience of Petone's seaside gallery.

Shane is a contemporary landscape and wildlife artist who is inspired by the vivid coastal scenery and colourful bird life around him. His paintings of New Zealand scenery are often recognized for their lush and beautiful design and strong graphic sense. Crisp and dynamic line work together with bold sweeps of colour, provide striking contrast elements in his paintings that draw the viewer in.

The exhibition will be on until Easter Monday, 22nd April and the gallery is open 10am to 5pm daily, Tuesday to Sunday.
