Tell us about what sort of preparation went into your current show?
I started planning the show the minute the title came to me. Everything seemed to fall into place from there. Nearly all the images are either completely new, or re-worked. I started a series of still-life photographs of flowers, which I hadn’t done before. I experimented with the different shades of Cyanotype, and I named the series, “Even Flowers get the Blues”. I developed a sepia colour that has an underlay of gold that I really like for my vintage-look images.
My helpers are always my faithful kitties. We work well together, and they remind me to take breaks. Otherwise, I’d work straight through days and nights.
I feel satisfied with the images I selected. I was anxious and fearful at the prospect of a solo exhibition, but as with anything else, I immersed myself in the work, and soon saw the exhibition taking shape. An artist friend said to “imagine it finished, and it will be done!” Good advice.

Each member has used their chosen medium and represented their subject matter in a fashion which may require some degree of interpretation from exhibition attendees.
Many forms of abstractions and varying viewpoints have been utilised by the KCA members to achieve our objective.
We gratefully acknowledge the tutorage of Rob McDowall, Maxine Burney and Galina Kim and their skills they imparted specifically for this exhibition.

Toni Duffy’s exhibition ‘Re-Collections’ is showing at Art On The Quay until July 12.
Her oil paintings interpret the wilderness of New Zealand with subtle plays of colour while her figurative work suggests an other-worldliness and mystery.
Toni says,” My aim is to capture the essence of a place or person.
I aim to scratch the surface and paint how I feel about the subject through my own experiences. I don’t want to reproduce images but interpret what I see and feel.”

Art and maths normally have little in common, but Neville Sinclair of Scargill has spent much of the last twenty-five years creating paintings inspired by numbers.
Magnet for the Mind at Kaiapoi’s Art On The Quay is an exhibition featuring his mathematical masterpieces, which depict geometric shapes and patterns more commonly seen in textbooks. Until 8th March.

Variations on Still Life by Kaiapoi Creative Arts.
In as many different media as possible. The result is a range of materials used from felting to painting and everything in between.
Guest artist Galina Kim used acrylics in a traditional still life composition that has instant appeal, but it is the more unusual felted sculpture, cross stitch and photography that deserve a closer look, revealing a painstaking dedication and hours of work to create these masterpieces.
Pay a visit to Art On The Quay to catch this exhibition before it closes on December 15.
Thank you to Ann Worthy for the photos
