Current Exhibition:

Graham Crow ‘Bathers’

Saturday 17 April – 16 May 2021.

Gallery Te Puna is excited to exhibit Graham Crow’s collection of figurative drawings.

Discerning art collectors have had a longstanding love affair with this work of Grahams, and Tauranga has not seen this work from him for over a decade.

We think its time for the Bay of Plenty to see these drawings and this exhibition gives locals a chance to add a piece of Graham’s timeless retrospective works to their art collection.

Artist Statement:

This collection of drawings are Gesso on board and feature the ‘figure’ in a beach setting.

This gives me the opportunity to draw these figures without the constraints of clothing, and a neutral ground on which to place them.

I refer to these works as drawings and though they may look like watercolours, the medium is liquid pencil, a product that I have been exploring for a few years now. The medium can be challenging, but I think very rewarding when I get it right.
