This year’s combined exhibition of the Gisborne Artists, Potters and Photographers includes a tribute in honour of ceramic artist, Peggy Ericson. ‘Shining Light Tribute’ is a display of lamps inspired by Peggy’s work – ‘earth and fire’ and ‘the natural world elements’ which was reflected throughout her pieces. Peggy referred to herself as a “dysfunctional potter” whose non-symmetrical, hand-built pieces had her finger marks all over them. No two pieces are the same.
A resurgence in ceramic art interest has revived Gisborne Pottery Group’s membership significantly, with new members joining this exhibition. Being a recipient of the Gisborne District Creative Communities NZ Funding Scheme, has enabled us to provide a wide range of ceramic workshops throughout this year bringing national tutors to our region.
The exhibition will showcase a diverse range of artworks, ceramics and photography. We invite you to join us celebrate the skill and talent of our artistic community.
