Art ex­hi­bi­tion well re­ceived

Matamata Chronicle - - News - By KAICEY AL­LI­SON

Lo­cal Mata­mata cou­ple Mike and Glen­nis Gaeng ex­hib­ited in the re­cent Au­tumn Fes­ti­val in Cam­bridge for the first time.

Glen­nis is a self-taught artist who is very cre­ative and loves to paint coastal scenes.

‘‘It wasn’t a first-time ex­pe­ri­ence but it was a first time ex­hibit­ing in Cam­bridge. It was very good and I re­ally en­joyed it. I got a lot of great feed­back,’’ Glen­nis says.

She has been paint­ing for at least 10 years and, along­side her hus­band, used to have a shop in Tau­ranga where they lived.

Glen­nis used to go to var­i­ous mar­kets, be­longed to the art so­ci­ety at Mount Maun­ganui and used to ex­hibit over there.

‘‘I have al­ways been paint­ing, I love it.’’
