Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Whis­per Art and Ob­ject Gallery’s first show was such a suc­cess another has al­ready been or­gan­ised.

The gallery, based out of Rob Ea­gle’s home on Bur­wood Rd, held its first show in Septem­ber.

A sec­ond has been or­gan­ised for this month fea­tur­ing Mata­mata’s own renowned artist Jim Cot­ter.

The gallery has at­tracted a lot of at­ten­tion in the art scene, with six na­tional artists want­ing to ex­hibit their work at the Mata­mata gallery, Ea­gle said.

This lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion opens on Novem­ber 28 from 6pm and will also be open on Novem­ber 29 and 30 from 10am-4pm.

Works from Mos­giel, Auck­land, Tau­ranga, Dunedin, Ti­maru, Ro­torua, Whanganui, Waiuku, Niue and Wellington will fea­ture.

‘‘ Gal­leries like this give peo­ple a cross sec­tion of art in New Zealand now,’’ Ea­gle said.

Through the cre­ation of the Whis­per Char­ity, an art col­lec­tion will be cre­ated for Pohlen Hos­pi­tal.

The launch of this char­ity will be a high­light of the ex­hi­bi­tion open­ing next week.
