art for everyone

The Christchurch Art Show held it’s fourth consecutive show at The Events Centre, Wigram

Air Force Museum of New Zealand in Christchurch from June 15 - 18.

Described as a show with “art for everyone”, the Christchurch Art Show, over four days

showcases works by New Zealand artists. At only $10 for entry in to the show it’s an

inexpensive way to peruse artworks in a gallery meets tradeshow style setting. All artworks

are for sale.

A feature of this years event was the “biggest ever wall of art” measuring 21 metres long.

The wall held a signature work of the top ten artists that the public voted they wanted to see

return from the 2016 show. The 2017 top ten artists were;

Joel Hart: Joel creates multi-dimensional, pop-culture inspired urban works, often

incorporating women.

Marie Kjestrup Adams: Marie uses bold brush strokes, line, colour and layering to create

expressive, free flowing works capturing movement, flair and the excitement of every day life.

Liz Turnbull: Liz’s works explore our landscape. She has a fascination with light, water and

the outdoors and how our landscape’s mood can be changed by light alone.

Odelle Morshuis: Recent pieces are paintings of figures framed with layers of engraved

glass.

Joe McMenamin: Joe’s flowing organic patterns that ripple through his works have won

him a following throughout New Zealand.

Jane Riley: Jane’s artworks depict the beauty she sees and interprets with tremendous

energy, passion and flair, often incorporating textures of sand, gemstones, shells and other

natural materials.

Janyne Fletcher: Jayne is an Otago-based photographer who clearly knows the nuances of

the region’s weather and land.

Megan Huffadine: The objects and forms in her work are derived from the Central Otago

locale. Seeds, remnants and discards are sketched from memory, scale is altered and then these

are developed into new forms.

Susan Hurrel Fieldes: Susan’s printmaking works are abstract and often focus on the

solarplate, collagraph and drypoint methods.

John Burns: John’s artwork is bold. Some have stories, some are crazy, gentle, mad, kind,

thoughtful, different and thats a word I hear a lot about my art, and a word I like... to be

different.

If you haven’t been to the Art Show, you should definitely add it on to your 2018 ‘to-do’ list.
