We opened on Thursday night in the Wellington rain, but the devoted still came out. Thanks to Caryl McKirdy at ROAR for a humming evening; not without Connah and Fraser’s help. Also to the fine and generous artists of Pablos for being wonderful hosts keeping everyone refreshed. I had the chance to meet new people and re-connect with friends. I was  honoured to meet artist and academic Stuart Shepherd – a champion of Outsider (or Contemporary Folk) art in NZ.  A special thanks also to Louise Upston (MP Taupo) for making the time to come down the hill. It was a wonderful and memorable night, and I know it sparked a whole new set of future directions and connections.


Inivitation to RAOR for Birthday Present - an exhibition

Thurs 5 May 5:30 – 7:00pm, 189-193 Vivian St

Merita Green is a self-taught artist living in Taupo. She works intuitively with local raw materials and found objects to explore her re-experience of childhood from the perspective of motherhood.

Her ceramic dolls are each housed in tin and wood shrines reminiscent of the religious folk art commonly associated with Central and South America.

“As adults, parents, communities we clothe children in layers of our own hope, fear and judgement.”

Join us at ROAR!gallery near the corner of Vivian and Victoria Streets for the opening on Thursday 5 May 5.30 – 7pm to meet the artist/s and share a glass of wine. All welcome.
