Contemporary Art Studio 40 Tasman St, Opunake, South Taranaki. NZ
For the last few months post Covid-19 lock down in New Zealand, my sculptor husband Chauncey Flay and I have been renovating an old shop on the main street of Opunake, a rural town in South Taranaki. The original idea of the space was to create a place for me to make art, teach and sell and display my work and display Chauncey's sculpture. It certainly has been a labour of love and is still a work-in-progress! That said, I have managed to have the front gallery space open over the last few weekends. The plan is to be open most weekends (Fri - Sun 10 -2). If the gallery lights are on, I'm most likely to be working in my studio out the back, so visitors are most welcome to come in and have a browse. For a small town, situated on the legendary Surf Highway 45, there is a surprisingly active and flourishing arts community with many artist run spaces, small galleries and open studios. You will find us right next door to Sugar Juice Café, so be sure to check us out next time you're passing through.
