Gallery Visit: Alfred Memelink Artspace
Wednesday 17 February 2021, 10am - 12pm
Join us for our first local art tour of 2021 – the Friends have arranged a visit to the Alfred Memelink Artspace Gallery on the Esplanade at Petone to view an exhibition of Ronda Thompson’s paintings.
Alfred Memelink Artspace Gallery is proud to be presenting sought after Wellington artist, Ronda Thompson, for her first solo exhibition at the gallery. Through her paintings, Ronda shares her love of Wellington, in particular the city’s waterfront scenery depicted in dawn or dusk moods, a time of day that inspires her most with calm water reflecting city lights.
Originally from Wellington, Ronda now paints from her seaside studio in Paekakariki. She paints in oils, mainly using a palette knife to give her paintings depth and texture.
Her paintings are highly detailed and take months to create. She brings picturesque settings we know and love to life in her realistic and richly textured cityscapes, seascapes and landscapes.
Ronda will be with us to talk about her life and love of painting, and will, of course, be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Light refreshments will be served at the Gallery following our viewing of the exhibition.
Member $25, Non-member $30 (or bring a friend at the member's rate). Numbers limited. Includes refreshments.
