Kawau Bay Artists Exhibit

UPDATE: This event will not take place due to the current Covid-19 restrictions. If new dates are announced they will be updated here.

Kawau Bay Artists will hold their annual exhibition and sale of their works during Labour Weekend at the Old Masonic Hall in Warkworth – assuming Auckland reaches Alert Level 2.

Each year, the artists invite a local guest to join them. This year’s guest is watercolour artist Mary Shepherd.

Mary will be exhibiting her watercolours framed and mounted, together with her photographs of flowers printed on canvas. Mary will donate money raised through the sale of her paintings to Harbour Hospice.
Kawau Bay Artists comprises Lillian Fromont, Jenny Arnerich, Sue Williams and Colleen Kangwai.

Each have been painting and exhibiting together for several years, successfully combining their diverse styles to achieve a colourful and harmonious presentation of their work within a single exhibition.

All the artists have been the recipients of awards and prizes for their work in recent years. The most recent have included Lillian Fromont’s bush painting Te Wairua o te Whenua, which won the Viewer’s Choice Award at the Great Summer Art Exhibition in Snells Beach in January.

Meanwhile, Colleen Kangwai received an Award of Merit for her depiction of blossom at an Estuary Arts Exhibition in Orewa in July.

The Warkworth Exhibition and Sale runs from Friday, October 22, to Saturday, October 23. Hours for both days are from 10am to 3pm.

Also on sale will be a variety of smaller items created by the artists. These include photos of local scenery, glass jewellery and paintings of flora and fauna
