Circa Cafe Exhibition February 2020
New work on show now
A fresh batch of work is on show now at Circa Cafe, our local cafe where we have established a mutually beneficial connection. Shingo, the owner, is very supportive of The White Room artists. He is open to art that is comes from raw inspiration rather than intellectual expectations. This suits us well. Also, as it is just around the corner from The White Room, we can go there for an excellent coffee (he roasts his own), and see the work in situ.
Hello, Chou - a solo exhibition by Peter Chou
This is a solo exhibition showcasing the best works from local artist Peter Chou's collection. It's an amazing opportunity to support a Christchurch artist and enjoy the quality around-the-world collection of Peter's works.
Peter has an incredible eye for detail. He combines his meticulous detail and craftsmanship with a quirky view. With his photographic memory and interest in places, he creates exquisite drawings filled with information where things are exactly a little out of the ordinary. He creates detailed illustrations of cities and famous buildings he has visited with his parents, both overseas and in New Zealand. Using high quality felt pens he draws directly onto A4 paper without doing any preliminary sketches, and never uses a ruler. Peter also makes model aeroplanes, all of which have the same minute attention to detail and scale. While his art will be for sale at the exhibition, the aeroplanes will be on display only.
The Exhibition will run Monday 3rd February – Friday 14th February at the Exchange Christchurch (376 Wilsons Rd). The gallery is open 7am – 4pm daily.
Thanks to XCHC, Creative Communities Scheme, The Drawing Room, SkillWise and The White Room for supporting this exhibition.
