Art comes clean, green


Kiwi artists with a passion for protecting New Zealand’s unique natural environment have combined for the latest exhibition at Tamahere’s Inspirit Gallery.
Artists, including Joan Fear, Santie Cronje, Tom Mutch, Rae West, and Rachel Olsen have created a diverse range of mixed media work that reflects New Zealand places they would like to see preserved for future generations.

The exhibition, Keep it clean and green New Zealand, opens on Sunday, June 8 at the Pencarrow Rd gallery.

“The exhibition comes with a strong environmental message at a time when we are aware of how threatened our oceans, rivers, lakes and natural environment are,” says gallery owner and photographer Jenny Scown, whose own work will be in the show.

“We hope to raise awareness of the importance of individual responsibility and the need to take positive action now to live up to our clean and green international reputation. Our collective future depends on how we nurture and protect our unique paradise at the bottom of the world.”

Also exhibiting are artists Jo Wilson, Heather Anne Atkins, Paul Herbert, Tony Harrington, Adrian Worsley, Aroha Wikotu-Shikoba, Jocelyn Pratt, Colleen Plank, Moana Lee, Richard Macdonald, Ciane Lawrey-Ginger, Aaron Scythe, Amanda Griffin, Peter Radley and Nici Greulich.
