Local landscape: Out and About at Onetangi will feature in an exhibition of Gwen Rutter paintings opening at Waiheke Community Art Gallery this Friday evening. Painter's show follows years of development By LYNDAL JEFFERIES Transitions, an exhi- bition by painter Gwen Rutter, opens at the Wai- heke Community Art Gallery this Friday even- ing December 17. Gwen says the exhi- bition explores the transitions she has made in her time as an artist. When I first came to the Island in 1989 I was painting on china as a hobby. I then moved on to watercolours, devoting the next 10 years to that medium and using mainly flowers and still- life as my subject,'' says Gwen. From there she changed to acrylics on canvas, painting the local landscape and coastline and incorporating native flowers of pohutukawa and flax. In the past 12 months Gwen has shifted to oils and recent subject matters include woven flax and flax kete. Gwen says: My aim is to capture the essence of the island as a place of colour and light.'' Gwen paints from her garden studio in Rocky Bay which is popular with both tourists and locals. She also works to commission, often com- bining a favourite view with a favourite tree or flower for a client. Transitions opens at the Waiheke Community Art Gallery on Friday. Gwen's studio at 67 Fair- view Cres, Rocky Bay, is open to the public on weekends and public holidays and by arrange- ment.
