This is a big weekend at the Academy Galleries. There’s lots happening … art appreciation at its best. A new show opens, two are closing soon, and a great shop.

Solo 43 showing the works of 10 talented artists continues but only for a few more days. Featured are Marcus Ebbett, Trevor Pye, John Christensen, Mark Curtis, Philip Markham, Greg Chaston, Bruce Luxford, Gabrielle Ridgway-Evans, Stewart Mackay and Suzanne Herschell. Subjects range from landscapes, cityscapes, and rockscapes to the surreal and kitsch.

Michael Browne’s retrospective continues with a selection of this award winning artist’s works. Michael received the 2017 Governor-General Art Award – a very well deserved accolade.

And opening in LightSpace is ‘Glorious’ - a joint show from Di Conway and Debbie Pointon. There's amazing works in clay and stoneware. Pop in and you’ll also likely meet Di or Debbie who’ll be in the gallery from time to time and would enjoy chatting about their work.

And finally the Academy Shop presents work by Academy artists, all original - paintings, jewellery, ceramics, glassware and more. As a special seasonal offer academy members receive a 10% discount on items valued over $100 in the shop until Christmas Eve. It’s a great place to buy yourself or someone special a perfect present.

Pop in to the Academy Galleries, 1 Queens Wharf, Wellington. Open daily from 10 am – entry is free. We’d love to see you.
