What's On:
Marianne Muggeridge Roger Morris: Mid-Life Retrospective, Portraits, Landscapes and 911
After 30 years of living and working together, Roger Morris and Marianne Muggeridge have collaborated in “Mid-life Retrospective: Portraits, Landscapes and 911”, a show at the Percy Thomson Gallery in Stratford, Taranaki in March this year. Morris and Muggeridge live and work in a home-studio custom built by them in 1988-90, at the upper end of Oeo Road, South Taranaki, very close to the Mountain. Their work chronicles their lives there, and a just ended 11 year stint in Willis St. Wellington, as fulltime artists and parents, often featuring daughters Lucy and Myfanwy, and now granddaughter Azra.

Previous Exhibition:

CONNECTIONS 2014
A group of like-minded Taranaki artists have combined their efforts to produce ‘Connections’– opening at Percy Thomson Gallery 7.30pm Friday 31 January 2014. The group includes – Juliet Chell, Antonia O’Mahony, Vivien Davy, Dorothy Andrews, William Bennett and Jenny Bielawski. An exhibition has proved an incentive for focussed growth and productivity for the six contemporary artists. The very large age difference reflects differing viewpoints – young eyes versus world weary. This culminates with a provoking, stimulating and fresh experience for viewers. Do not miss this chance to see artists working together in parallel directions, bravely sharing their innovative techniques, inner thoughts and creative processes.
