“Still playing with fire” group exhibition at the Taupo Museum
Ceramic, painting, sculpture
For this group exhibition, Raglan artist Elsa Lye will show 4 paintings all painted recently en plein air at Marakopa.
I stayed for 5 days in Tehut in the camping ground at Marakopa. It was wild west coast weather, had to thread my easel through a fence and hide behind a big flax bush.
Facing the elements and to paint intuitively is a challenge I love, focusing directly on the immediacy of the moment.
Taupo Museum, 4 Story Place, Taupo
Opening Friday 18 May, until 25 June
Hours: Monday – Sunday, 10 am – 4:30 pm
