Favourites 2016

The first Favourites exhibition was held last year and was such a success for both owners and visitors that it was worth repeating.Favourites 18

This year local art lovers from Kaiapoi, Kairaki, Clarkville, Ohoka and Rangiora were invited to share a favourite work of art that they owned.

The range of work that came in is interesting as there were two by Oliva Spencer Bower, a North Canterbury artist, two by Svetlana Orinko of Christchurch and two by Angus Watson, from Queenstown, indicating their popularity.

Landscapes, of our beautiful country, and predominately water-colour, made up a fair number.

The surprise of this collection of locally owned art is the sketch by Salvador Dali and is in fact the only non-NZ artist in this exhibition.

There are a few of Christchurch pre-quake reminding us of life when we had a city centre nearby.

We asked the owners to explain what it was about the piece that made it a favourite and we hope you enjoy reading their responses.

A big thank you to them for sharing their art especially as they now have to look
