Small artworks leave big impression A new exhibition celebrating artworks that are small in scale but huge in content opens this Friday at TOI Gallery. The exhibition, titled Aha koa he iti, he pounamu -- Although small it is precious, features works from a range of award win- ning Waiheke artists includ- ing Kazu Nakagawa, Lyndal Jefferies, Chris Bailey, Vir- ginia King, Oliver Stretton- Pow, Christine Thacker, Kiya Nancarrow, Jo Smith, Penny Ericson and Te Aomarama Ngarimu. Gallery owner Sally Smith says the works celebrate the small things in life that can often make big im- pressions on us . A magic moment at dawn on the beach with a lone fisherman is captured by Jo Smith in a series of small window-like paintings. Chris Bailey has changed the scale he normally works at to create a new range of smaller necklaces. Oliver Stretton-Pow has brought a collection of small bronze works together, cre- ating a moon hanging by a hook, a miniature rooster and a tiny naval mine. Lyndal Jefferies has devel- oped her engraving work for the show, moving from stain- less steel to a new collection of small mirrors. Kazu Nakagawa has been busy in his workshop cre- ating three new works that will be unveiled for the first time at the exhibition open- ing. Three ceramicists are rep- resented in the exhibition with new works in clay by Christine Thacker, Penny Ericson and Kiya Nan- carrow. Ms Smith says: It s a bit like New Zealand. We may be a small country but we make an everlasting im- pression on our visitors. The exhibition opens at 6pm on September 23 and runs until October 26.
