‘A Canvas in a Pear Tree’

‘A Canvas in a Pear Tree’


~ The annual festive extravaganza of marvellous art for Christmas!


ROAR! gallery, 55 Abel Smith St, Above Real Groovy, Wellington


Opening Thursday 6th December


Running 6th – 23rd December


ROAR! gallery presents a fine seasonal selection of Wellington and New Zealand’s creative wonders. We have all of your favourites, and some new discoveries too.

Many of you will already know and love Michele Irving. Creator of all things fine and fantastical in fabric, felt, fur and beads, for this show she has made her own range of crowns featuring her version of ‘The Twelve days of Christmas’. The sneak peaks we have had so far are attached in the form of ‘Twelve Robots Racing’

Paul Bradley has created miniature artworks framed by copper to wear on your sleeve or lapel. After his wildly successful sell out show earlier this year we advise attendance of the opening to get hold of one of these beauties.

Carmel McSherry has sent us three new dollies from her ‘Scrappies’ range of biodegradable, one off ladies made from luxury scraps and beautifully boxed for gifts.

Ann Moore is sending us more of her divine and delicious hand knitted gingerbread men, which will taste just right with Poppy Moore;s Liberated Lamingtons.

We also have small works from Vincent Duncan at a special Christmas price, and artworks from many more local artists, along with original wrapping paper and one off cards.

Buy local! Buy original! Support art, look cool and get great stuff for Christmas!
