PAINTINGS BY SALLY SPICER
Preview Friday 22nd Sept 5:30 - 7:30
Exhibition 23rd September - 20th Oct
14 Cross St, Regent
Working in both oil paint and watercolour, Sally draws from everyday life to create scenes that are dramatic and intriguing, yet familiar. Sally's obvious fascination with light, her care with composition and considered use of colour make these works theatrical and inviting.
I'm happy to share the news that I will have some NEW watercolours available for purchase at The NZ Art Show in Wellington in June, at the TSB Arena.
