A hotbed of talent

Behind the scenes

It's rewarding to see some of our staff also becoming successful artists.

Nathan Pohio is showing a video work at the entrance to City Gallery Wellington. Chris Pole has an exhibition of his paintings at one of the new art spaces in Christchurch, Chambers@241 in Moorhouse Avenue. And Shannon Williamson combined with other young artists to show her work recently at their studios in Elgin Street and has accepted a residency in Perth that she will start next year.
