Small works on show

CHB Mail - - Farm Focus -

Elec­tra Gallery’s cur­rent ex­hi­bi­tion of small paint­ings re­quires each artist to limit the long­est di­men­sion of the work to 23cm, ex­clud­ing fram­ing.

Each work can be left un­framed where ap­pro­pri­ate — as in a paint­ing on a can­vas or board — or it can be framed as imag­i­na­tively as the artist chooses.

More than 50 paint­ings cover a wide range of top­ics and styles with many colour­ful items. Some are from well-known artists who are reg­u­lar gallery con­trib­u­tors, but there are some new peo­ple ex­hibit­ing too.

The small works ex­hi­bi­tion has been an an­nual event at Elec­tra for some years but the com­mit­tee de­cided to move the tim­ing nearer to Christ­mas this year. Here is a great op­por­tu­nity to find a gift for some­one or to fill a spot in your own home. “Small and very af­ford­able,” says spokes­woman Margie Steven­son.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will run un­til Satur­day, Novem­ber 17 at Elec­tra Gallery, Ru­atani­wha S, Waipuku­rau. Gallery hours are 10am to 4pm on week­days and 10am un­til 12.30pm on Satur­days.
