"Surprise - A Christmas Exhibition"
2000-12-14 until 2001-01-14
Wellington City Gallery
Wellington, , NZ

Twenty-five Wellington artists will spill the beans for Christmas in an exhibition opening this week. The artists have each presented work based around the theme of 'surprise'.

The artists worked within set dimensions, which meant a large number of works could be included in the show, says Rebecca Wilson, curator of 360 / Michael Hirschfeld Gallery. Almost all have responded to the invitation with new work, so the exhibition is a sample of current art in Wellington, with the emphasis on emerging artists.

Some artists have been inspired by personal experiences related to Christmas surprises, while others have focussed on historical and political connotations, she says.

Visitors will see a wide range of media, from painting to video and 3D pieces. A number of the artists are showing for the first time in this venue, while others have featured in previous shows at the Michael Hirschfeld Gallery.

The artists in Surprise are Catherine Bagnall; Ciaran Begley; Peter Black; Chris Bryant; Ros Cameron; Robert Cherry; Chris Clements; Kathy Barry; Emma Febvre-Richards; Gary Freemantle; Maddie Leach; Marcus Moore; Simon Morris; Anna-Marie O'Brien; Neil Pardington; Richard Reddaway; Jason Secto; Stuart Shepherd; Saffronn Te Ratana; Terry Urbahn; Maria Walls; John Walsh; Tao Wells; Nicky Wynnychuk; and Wayne Youle.

The Michael Hirschfeld Gallery features monthly exhibitions of work by Wellington artists. Surprise is part of the exhibitions programme 360-a full perspective on Wellington Art, sponsored by Designworks.
