What's on at the Forrester Gallery
I have always had a love of drawing but first picked up a paintbrush at the age of 16. It was then I started to have a go at oils, as I loved the old masters. I could spend hours looking through books I had got out of the library wondering how on earth they managed to paint like that.Forrester Gallery23 January 2021 to 7 March 2021
Five Artists impressions of the Forrester Gallery.
This impressive building was built in 1884 for the Bank of New South Wales. Architect Robert Lawson designed this neo-classical style building; making brilliant use of local Ōamaru stone.Forrester Gallery9 February 2021 to 4 April 2021
“I like the idea of people being literally wrapped up in my artwork and wandering about in it. A sort of walking exhibition that changes with the wearer and the walk.”Forrester Gallery20 February 2021 to 4 April 2021
In 1970 a group of Oamaru potters came together and called themselves the North Otago Potters. They moved into a cottage at 44 Tyne Street and became Ceramic 44, now Pottery on Tyne.Forrester Gallery20 February 2021 to 4 April 2021
