Lopdell House Gallery newsletter


Lopdell House Gallery newsletter


Happy New Year to all our friends and supporters.
2014 is going to be an exciting year for Lopdell House Gallery. With summer trips to the beach taking us regularly through Titirangi, we can't wait to get into our fabulous new building, which has now grown above the fence and has only a few floors to go. We're looking forward to welcoming you all to our new home later in the year, meanwhile don't forget to visit our temporary gallery and shop in New Lynn, where there's plenty to see.


Site Unseen: Veronica Herber
6 December 2013 - 26 January 2014
The distinctive 1960s architecture of neighbouring Ceramco House will be the canvas for a cascade of colour, which will flow into the gallery. Fresh from Sculpture by the Sea in Bondi, and set to depart from her signature net motif, Veronica Herber shifts everyday industrial forms from banal to intriguing through her use of geometry.

Curiosity Cabinet: From over there to over here: Australian Jewellery
6 December 2013 - 26 January 2014
Six Australia-based jewellers have been invited to show their work in this month’s Curiosity Cabinet exhibition. Each maker has their own distinct style and point of view, utilising different materials to create playful and vibrant pieces.

Wellington Arts Tour
7 - 9 March 2014
Do you enviously read the New Zealand Festival guide and always wish more of the events would come to Auckland? Instead, Lopdell House Gallery takes Auckland to the 2014 arts festival in Wellington. Make your own travel arrangements to suit your budget and we’ll take care of the art with a three day guided exhibition tour hosted by our director, Andrew Clifford. Meet artists, curators and dealers, and take a bus trip to Pataka in Porirua, and the Dowse Art Museum in Lower Hutt to see the exhibition Slip Cast.
Cost $80 or $60 members Email us to book – places strictly limited.

LHG 2013 Commemorative Dish
As part of the development of the new Lopdell House Gallery currently being built in Titirangi, we’ve excavated some clay from the building site to produce a series of commemorative dishes to mark this exciting occasion. Designed in collaboration with Auckland Studio Potters in a range of salt and ash glazes, there are still a few available from the Gallery Shop at $35 each.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs.

Scoop Review Of Books:

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>

Howard Davis: Get It On, Bang A Gong, Pt I

Several readers have recently inquired about the significance of the image that accompanies my by-line. While the man-bun is long gone, I still incorporate the sound of the gong in my Kundalini Yoga classes. More>>
