Tim Nees Gallery

New Gallery at 2 Blair Street, April 1

Wellington’s prestigious Bartley Nees Gallery is set to transform itself into an exciting new artspace – the Tim Nees Gallery.

“The new gallery will remain committed to the promotion and development of high quality work by emerging and established artists working in New Zealand,” says owner Tim Nees.

Artists represented by the gallery operate in a wide range of media including painting, sculpture, photography, mixed media, installation and video.

“The artists represented are all serious practitioners whose work will be of interest to a wide range of both public and private collectors. Many of the artists have been showing with the former gallery, but the Tim Nees Gallery will be introducing a number of new artistsnot seen before in Wellington. “says Nees.

Nees also runs the adjunct space, SOFA (Society of Fashion and Art) which will showcase top New Zealand designers.

Nees is excited about his new ventures and confident that they will add to the vibrancy of the arts and fashion scene in the capital.

“With my architecture, the art, and now fashion, all located in Blair Street, I envisage an exciting and successful future.”

The Tim Nees Gallery opens on Saturday 1st April, with a floor talk by Sydney-based photographer Rebecca Shanahan launching the opening of her first New Zealand solo exhibition.

New Zealand-born Shanahan has been based in Australia since 1988 and has widely exhibited photographic, sculpture and installation work throughout Australia. Shanahan’s work exhibits a quiet tension between interior and exterior, foreground and background, light and dark. She describes people and spaces with a sensibility that merges with the cinematic.

“A central aim of this work is to invoke photography’s relationship with absence and transience,” states Shanahan.

“It expresses stillness rather than action in circular or simultaneous rather than linear time.”

Tim Nees Gallery is located at 2 Blair Street, Wellington.

Howard Davis: Review - 'I, Daniel Blake' - Ken Loach's Bleak Masterpiece

'I, Daniel Blake' is a bleak masterpiece, a chilling and moving story of two people striking up an unlikely friendship under extremely adverse circumstances. It is both a polemical indictment of a faceless benefits bureaucracy that strips claimants of their humanity by reducing them to mere numbers, and a celebration of the decency and compassion of ordinary people who look out for one another when the state has abandoned them.
