Some great photos and excellent commentary from Mo at its crow time.
And here some photos of the glass ceiling of the gallery which is the floor of the cafe upstairs.
And here is the progress of my box of rust. The wire is growing protrusions as the rusting process continues.
I’m really enjoying spending time here with Peri.
There is only a little wax in this show, lots of rust, a bit of woodcut print, and some stitching!

Reception for artists: 5.30 -7.30, Friday 31st January at gallery
Taylor-Jensen Fine Arts’ initial offering for the year is ‘Crossing Boundaries: Five Australian and Five New Zealand Artists Challenging Traditional Printmaking Structures.’ Opening at 5.30PM on Friday 31st January with a reception to honour the artists, Crossing Boundaries demonstrates the wide range of possible expressions of creative endeavour that contemporary printmakers have produced in recent years. As arts writer and printmaker, Jacqueline Aust, formerly of Palmerston North states: “Printmaking has leapt out of the frame with the introduction of larger images, print installations, new technologies, three dimensional forms, and alternative supports.” In June of 2013, ten artists were invited to ‘explore perceived boundaries of traditional print practice and to generate work that spoke to the nature of those boundaries.’ This exhibition includes print installations; work focused on combining print with unexpected materials and works that comment on the process of printmaking. To say that Crossing Boundaries is not your usual print show would be an understatement. Originally shown at the Northart Gallery in Auckland Crossing Boundaries is the ideal exhibition to get your passion for art pumping as Taylor-Jensen kicks of its 2014 exhibition year.
The second show is opening in New Zealand soon….
