Summer Salon 19 October 2020
A silver lining to recent global events has been the gift of time. As the pace of life slowed, many of us found ourselves looking anew at the art upon our walls. With travel plans on hold, we were reminded of the visual value of art. A painting has the power to transport the viewer, elevate the spirits and give us pause for reflection. A painting can make us happy, and that in itself is no simple thing.
As 2021 draws closer, so does our 5th decade of offering art from the heart of Parnell. Our annual Summer Salon is therefore a particularly joyful celebration embraced by over 30 of our represented artists from New Zealand and beyond. Whilst the subject matter of this collection is richly diverse, all works are presented in a pleasing, easily accommodated 40 x 40cm format.
In closing I wish to extend sincere thanks to our gifted artists and the wonderful International Art Centre family who have so ably assisted with curating this special exhibition. They join with me in sending warmest wishes and thanks to you, our valued friends and clients, Frances Davies - Director
