“There is no one template for becoming an artist. There may be some promising avenues … but ultimately each committed artist forges his or her work through the circumstances … largely by chance, but perhaps with a determination to make sense of it all.” – Peter Ireland
The exhibition is accompanied by a beautiful catalogue, designed and printed here in Gisborne – and will be available to purchase for $15.00 (with a 10% discount for Friends of the Museum), with all proceeds supporting the museum. This will be available from opening night onwards.
