Exhibition Opening – In Between
Creative Kāpiti is delighted to present the new exhibition,’ In Between’ featuring new lockdown artworks by artists Sandra Smillie and Sara Boland. You are invited to meet the artists for a relaxed, socially distanced, opening of their exhibition at Robert Harris, Coastlands accompanied by wine and nibbles. The tables and chairs will be moved aside so there will be plenty of room for 2m distancing. Remember to stay home if you feel unwell. Otherwise, we look forward to seeing you for a fun night.
Many will know Sandra Smillie from her expert installation and curation for our Art for Everyone programme. Sandra is also an emerging artist, who has gone back to her days of practicing technical drawing. In these works she is exploring her own identity as an artist and two sides of her personality – the journey through the intersection of order and chaos.
Sara Boland graduated in 1994 with a Diploma in Visual Arts and Design and then spent quite a few years designing and creating jewellery before changing direction and working with textiles and mixed media. “Slow, hand stitching is a meditative activity that balances my busy family life” says Sara. “My art practice is about exploring inner feelings, quiet ideas and blurring the lines between art and craft.”
