Michele Grace Davies
An Exhibition of Paintings
21stJanuary - 9thFebruary 2019
Michele Grace Davies says that her life in the U.K did not lend itself to being an artist. She moved back to New Zealand fourteen years ago and has worked as a self-employed gardener for the last ten. Michele loves our native trees and views working in amazing gardens and bush areas as… “a great privilege”. In her working life, she has had the opportunity to study how they grow and form their individual structures. Last year a photographic workshop in the Waitakere ranges led to a moment of clarity when Michele was suddenly inspired to start painting again. In that moment, she also realised what she wanted to paint and since that day she hasn’t stopped. “Each new idea inspires another! so here I am today with my first ever Solo exhibition”.
These stunning paintings by this exciting emerging artist celebrate Kauri and other native trees in all their magnificent glory. Michele also aims to highlight the conservation of Kauri through this exhibition and says… “We have to protect this majestic tree of which many stories and legends are told, they are part of us, all peoples!”. This new year come and be awed by Michele’s vision and the beauty of creation.
‘MAKE ME AN OFFER’
11th – 23rd FEB 2019
A Kumeu Arts Centre Members’ Exhibition
This exhibition will run much like a silent auction. Visitors will be able to ‘make an offer’ on each artwork in the exhibition by writing down their details and their bid. People will also be able to bid online until the exhibition ends. Artists will be notified at the end of exhibition what the highest bid (if any) was for their work and will choose to either accept or decline. The potential buyer will then be notified.

Tuesday 26th February to Saturday 16th March.
'Through the ‘Symphony of Movement’ series, we reflect on the fragility of nature. The beauty in the rhythm of what nature provides to us. The colour, the light can be viewed as playing through the thin filament of the petals and the undulating fluidity. The fragility reflects the universe in which we live. Each link is totally dependent on connections; both prior and after. The undulating rhythm of the stem connects by way of movement to the next. The viewer is transported through a symphony of movement through one layer to the next by way of diaphanous layers of lightness.'
Opening event TBA
