Glimpses of a moment in time, figurative portraits, enigmatic sculptures and organic forms of pottery are on show from Friday, 28 February at Te Huanui, in its upcoming exhibition, “Figuratively Speaking”. Drawing on artists across the South Island, we showcase works by Vicki Knudsen, Jo Loughnan, Odelle Morshuis and Dot Moulton.

Vicki Knudsen’s work celebrates life and the joys and trials we have. While we are most familiar with Vicki’s work in watercolour, for this exhibition we’re showing a series of life drawings in charcoal.

Jo Loughnan has a love of portraits and figures, capturing moods, expressions and relationships with a fresh, expressive style. Her mixed media works capture moments in time creating likeness and movement.

Odelle Morshuis’ work creates a narrative, every space telling a story with movement, balancing between the here and now, the when and why. Both her paintings and steel sculptures create strong, yet delicate finished pieces.

Dot Moulton’s current pottery showcases her imagination and freedom from the wheel-thrown domestic wares she made in a former pottery career. Pinching and coiling clay, Dot loves the organic results and the opportunity to explore new techniques.

“Figuratively Speaking” opens from 6pm, Friday, 28 February and runs until 1pm, Thursday, 26 March 2020.

Te Huanui, 17 South Terrace, Darfield
Open 10am–4pm, Tuesday–Sunday
