ANNA MILES GALLERY, upstairs at 4j/47 High Street opens a very special show
Preview: Wednesday 23 November 6 – 8pm
Sarah Hillary’s painting often forms associations between the art she works with in a professional capacity and art she encounters in her personal life. As Principal Conservator at Auckland Art Gallery, Hillary can spend days surveying the surfaces of some of New Zealand’s most revered paintings under a microscope. In Floating, she turns her attention to the intimate world of the gift. The shells she has painted on have been given to her by friends and relations. The subjects she has chosen to paint are parts of gifts to her and members of her family.
Exhibition runs till 22 December 2011.

Jane Sanders ART Agent on level one of the Blackett’s Building on the cnr Shortland & Queen Street brings you new paintings by
Being there. Where?
Preview 23 November 5.30 – 7.30pm
Des Helmore has always been fascinated with the environs around him, be it a rural or city landscape. He reduces details and brings the world around us into the abstract. It is often the seemingly incidental features, which provide attraction for Helmore and act as signifiers of the type of site depicted.
Helmore’s new suite of works Being there, where? will delight both those familiar and unfamiliar with his work with their beautifully painted surfaces as he parles with Google Earth!

JOHANNA PEGLER renders the unprepossessing remarkable. Her painting is irretrievably attuned to unsung aspects of the local landscape. She has an eye for fragile textures; patches of erosion, sheep trails, disheveled cabbage trees, misshapen macrocarpas. Her first-person observation of particular environments, and their animal inhabitants, is matched by slow, deliberate consideration for the painted surface.View Comments

Jan Nigro is renowned for her illustrious career as a figurative artist spanning more than six decades. She is described by Ron Brownson, senior curator in New Zealand and Pacific Art at Auckland Art Gallery as “a living hero…She has a huge heart for the truths within other’s lives.
