About the exhibition

Jean Loomis is an artist and teacher who lived in Blenheim from 2016 – 2021. Soon after Jean’s move to the Wairau (Marlborough) region, the magnitude 7.8 Kaikoura Earthquake struck. Always driven to get to know her environment, its history and mythology; she began research into her new home - a region on a Faultline.
'Nga Awa e Toru - 3 Rivers' is the result of five years of drawing, mapping, photographing, driving and flying over the rivers that flow along the three alpine faults underlying the Marlborough region.
