godwit 700Hello Spring!  Although as of late it feels like there is a bit of winter left that Mother Nature is getting out of her system.

Good news is that the Godwits have been spotted in CHCH, on the shores of our Estuary, 115 to be exact, with more to come home.  I have been inspired to paint a few small paintings of the godwits:)

Xgaleri will be having new hours, as well as by appointment.  As of October the Gallery wlll be open Thursday and Friday 10-3pm And Saturday 10-2pm.  There will be other times that the gallery will be open and you may wander by and see Max  or myself open up on other days, but these will be our regular hours.  Thank you to all of you that have phoned  or emailed to visit the gallery by appointment, this has worked out really well for all and I will continue to have this option for anyone that needs to visit us.

Darfield Artweek opens soon and I have one piece at this exhibition, Opening night is Friday the 6th of October, running until the 15th of October

The Peninsula Art Auction is back and is on this October, also called The biggest Lyttel Art Auction, famous for the connection with the late Bill Hammond.  I have two pieces in this show, The Grubb Cottage and Thoughtful Tui . More to come in October  held in the beautiful Lyttelton.



Brownbear pottery has a new spring collection of espresso cups and bud vases, and are available to purchase through art@sheilabrown.co.nz  or Xgaleri.

I am happily working on a series of Akaroa and Lyttelton Cottages, along with my birds:)  And Glorious Flight, one of my largest paintings to date is finally finished, will be at the Gallery by the 1st of October:)  And if you like cabbage roses or pears, you might like the ones that I am so close to finishing.

I have an array of Budvases and new pottery at Xgaleri, perfect for all of your cherry blossom or forget me nots..

Nature Notebooks and my line of prints and cards.


Look forward to catching up.

Enjoy Daylight Savings:)






Stay warm
