Westland Arts Incorporated and Westland District Library are collaborating to make a free exhibition space available.
Art @ the Library is a small, nimble and flexible project that aims to provide exhibition space for artistic and innovative proposals.
I am an ordinary ‘kiwi ‘bloke who likes to dabble with a paintbrush. Painting has always been an important part of my life.
In my time at school, there was no such thing as art as a subject, so I had no formal training until I attended several workshops by Brent Trolle in the 1980s.
Initially, I painted with oil paints but after these workshops, I found acrylics more to my liking.
My landscape paintings are often taken from photographs or calendar pictures with a little artistic licence applied.
I have a small studio at home where I enjoy working and creating my paintings.
Painting gives me great pleasure and I hope you too get pleasure from viewing my work.
All my work is for sale.
Please enquire at the library reception desk for my contact details.
If you are interested in being a part of the Art @ the Library project and exhibiting your creative works we encourage you to read through the guidelines and submit an application (linked below). Paper applications may be collected from and returned to Westland District Library.
