Opening Sunday April 16, 2017 at 4-7pm
The Little Gallery, Tairua
These new works are a collaboration between The Little Gallery’s artists and Auckland-based artist Gary Brooks, who has become well-known for creating beautiful concrete orbs.
Gary Brooks’ orbs are some of The Little Gallery’s most popular artworks. Each orb is individually hand-cast in concrete, and inlaid with gold or silver leaf or shimmering paint, giving them a beautiful iridescent quality. Their forms have been likened to cracked eggs, and no two are alike. Produced in a range of colours and patterns, they are universally appreciated as both beautiful art objects and functional home décor pieces.
For ‘Hatched,’ Gary has provided The Little Gallery’s artists with plain concrete orbs and they have responded by creating unique orbs in their own distinctive styles of painting and art-making.
“Our artists’ practices span a diverse range of styles and mediums, and we are excited to present the unique and quirky outcomes of this collaborative initiative,” says Sarah Holden, owner of The Little Gallery.
The Little Gallery is gaining a reputation as one of the Coromandel region’s top art galleries, and one of the must-visit attractions in Tairua. The ‘Hatched’ exhibition aims to offer another reason to visit the gallery, explore the art and enjoy the fun creations from this never-before-tried partnership between styles and mediums.
