BOLD ARTISTIC VISIONS IN COLLECTIVE EXHIBITION
Five artists, with five creative visions - collaborate in a collective exhibition- have something to say #2, which opens on April 15th at 6pm at Te Auaha Galley, Ground Floor 65 Dixon St, Wellington and continues until Saturday 25th April.
Margie Beattie, arts curator & collaborator, brings another collective exhibition to life, giving fresh creative voices an opportunity to be observed and absorbed.
“Artists are story-tellers. They muse on themes that often obsess them into an intense creative process. Their visual stories need outlets – so have something to say - a collective exhibition, was created. This is the second collective exhibition, with a third planned at the end of the year,” says Margie.
Have something to say not only provides an opportunity for artists, but for an arts audience, exposing them to cutting edge and exciting art voices. The ground floor custom-made gallery space at Te Auaha, the new creative campus in the Dixon/ Cuba precinct, is a perfect space for these five artists to have their say.” adds Margie.

• Elspeth Shannon - new abstract works drawing upon elemental nature- incorporating, oil, acrylic and ink;
• popular contemporary mixed-media artist Glen Jorna – Art teacher and resident artist at Wellesley College;
• exciting young photography talent Jasmine Chalmers - her themes encompassing baroque and surreal worlds;
