Past Exhibitions (2018/19)
May 1 – May 26
“Enduring of Suffering”
exhibition by the international artist Douglas Chowns is a
“hommage to those who hurt physically or mentally and expect no help or change”
The works on display here at Reyburn house were completed within a year and a day and started on the Celtic festival of “Beltaine” on May 1st 1993.
Douglas is celebrating his 82nd Birthday with his revisit to this series on social realism.
At the opening night, on the significant date of May 1st, Douglas performed a ritual where the paintings, which cover very powerful themes, were slashed in order to release the suffering bringing peace to this section of his life’s work.
To Douglas, art is life. He is a realist, painter and thinker who remains true to his heritage.
Bay of Islands Painting Group
9 April – 28 April 2019
The Bay of Islands painting group has been meeting regularly for over 40 years.
“We usually have around 30 talented members who share a passion for art. A few of those members have been involved right from the start and still pass on their knowledge and experience to the rest of the group.”
The group meets weekly at the Waitangi yacht club, an amazing venue. They meet to share ideas, workshops and their love of painting and drawing and of course the occasional group lunch.

10 JULY: Artist Adrienne Dietrich Exhibition “RUST “
10th July to Sunday 29th July 2018
“I began painting in the early1980’s as a raw beginner, “couldn’t draw a straight line”. l started by using oil paints, then graduated with pastels and now . . . .anything goes!
In recent years, the works of the Expressionists, their strong use of colour and line, has given my work a new vibrancy and strength. l use a variety of paint mediums nowadays, my favourites being watercolour, gouache, pastels and pen& wash”.
