Artists Jane Blackmore and Juliet Best

Artists Jane Blackmore and Juliet Best at their Blackmore & Best Gallery and Studio, Shelly Bay

This event is now fully booked.

Meet the artists at work in their studios in Shelly Bay. At 10.30am we will start at the Blackmore & Best Gallery and Studio on the water’s edge. Artist Juliet Best will talk about how Te Papa and its taonga have influenced her work as she explores the themes of flora and fauna. Jane Blackmore will discuss how the viewer is challenged to interpret and reinterpret what they see in her landscapes.

After the visit to the gallery you will make your way up the drive to the collective of artist studios in the former Shelly Bay RNZAF Hospital and be free to explore all that Hayley May and her artist colleagues have to offer. You will see work in a variety of mediums and styles: painting, printmaking, glass, mixed media, photography and wearable art. All works are for sale.

Following your tour of the studios, enjoy coffee or lunch at the very popular Chocolate Fish Café.

When you book, please indicate whether you require transport or can offer someone a ride
from Te Papa. A 10.10am departure from Te Papa is planned.

This event is now fully booked, to add your name on the waiting list, send us an email [email protected] or phone the office on (04) 381 7051.
