Don Binney's exhibition, Ocean's Edge, is an evolution from the touring exhibition Drawing the Waitakere Coast which was presented at public art galleries in Nelson and Gore. Ocean's Edge features coastal areas around New Zealand and is a continuation of the series produced for the book, Drawing the Waitakere Coast.
The original suite of works, which remain in the artist's collection, are augmented here with 12 subsequent works all linked with their coastal perspective as listed in the exhibition's catalogue.
This exhibition comes to the Millennium with the support of The Diversion Gallery, Don's principal agent in New Zealand.
Some of the new paintings, prints and drawings in Ocean's Edge will be available to collectors - please contact Barbara Speedy on 0274 408 121 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Included in these works are a beautiful suite of four Marlborough Sounds drawings of Croisilles Harbour. To complement the Millennium exhibition, earlier and Marlborough Sounds works by Don Binney will be on show from 3-20 May, at The Diversion Gallery, 10 London Quay on the Picton waterfront.
(Open Weds-Sat 12-5pm or other times by appointment).
