Clients and friends of the firm joined us at Murray & Co offices in Christchurch on 3 March for the unveiling of some stunning pieces of work in our 2016 art exhibition and to meet the artists behind them.
The artists, mainly recent graduates from the University of Canterbury’s School of Fine Arts, included Stephanie McEwin, Donna-Marie Patterson, Sandra Gottermeyer, Akky van der Velde, Centuri Chan, Bianca Scrimgeour, Janie Bruce, Georgia Taggart, Charlotte Jackson, Olivia Chamberlain and Ruth Mcleod.
Seven of the 12 artists with art on display were thrilled to make a sale, with nearly half of the artworks snapped up on the evening.
As the year progresses, these artists will be invited to replace works sold, so as to create an ‘on-going’ exhibition, enabling these emerging artists to gain as much exposure as possible.
Our continued thanks to the School of Fine Arts at the University of Canterbury for such a successful collaboration from which so many people derive pleasure and inspiration.
Our thanks also to Mount Brown Estates who generously supported the evening with some delicious wines.
Anyone may contact our offices to view any of the works or to find out more about the artists by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
