Artists celebrate first decade

A group of Mahurangi artists will celebrate their 10th annual exhibition at the end of this month.

Jade River Artists – Jocelyn Adolph, Doris Riederer, Anna Sutherland and Vivienne Paterson – are presenting the exhibition Flora, Fauna, Feathers and Fins. “Our passion is capturing the essence of nature in a variety of media including ceramics, mixed media pieces and paintings,” Doris says.

“Native birds and coastal scenes, flowers, fish, shells, dinghy and more are handcrafted in clay. Some of the pottery pieces are combined with driftwood and old fence battens.”

The free exhibition will be held in the Old Masonic Hall in Warkworth, from Friday to Sunday, January 27 to 29, 9am-5pm.
