Grahame Sydney Floor Talk

Porirua's Pataka Gallery

A floortalk by artist Grahame Sydney at his “Down South” exhibition at Porirua’s Pataka Gallery on Saturday 24th September was attended by  over 230 people.  Sydney spoke about his early years as an artist, his influences, love for, and connection with the Central Otago landscape,  ranged over some of the threats to that region’s unique qualities, and gave context around some of the 28 works on display.  The paintings are on view at Pataka until February 2012, and an additional show of 25 of  photographs, mostly related to the new book  “Grahame Sydney’s Central Otago,” will open at the same gallery on October 15th and run for a month.
