Exhibition Opening: Monday 9th March 4pm.
Come along and meet the artists Jan Linklater and Diann Cade at the Carlton Gallery and enjoy browsing their artwork over wine and nibbles.
Exhibition continues at The Carlton Gallery, The Arts Junction, 36 Main Road Katikati from 9th March – 22nd March, Mon-Fri 9am-4pm. Sat-Sun 10am-2pm.
This exhibition was conceived round the dinner table during a very convivial meal when the challenge was posed to have a joint exhibition in which two artists explore their responses to the same subjects, hence the title: DOUBLE VISION.
Both Diann Cade and Jan Linklater have exhibited widely and have sold works internationally as well as to locals.
Diann and Jan are good friends who have always critiqued each other’s paintings along the way; their contrasting styles and palettes make for an interesting juxtaposition of works based on common themes which leave plenty of scope for differing interpretations
The ten subjects are:
• Still life to include the work of another artist
• Portrait of the other
• Two people in a garden
• People interacting with their world and each other: interior
• People interacting with their world and each other: exterior
• A masterpiece interpretation: Titian’s Death of Acteon
• A specific landscape: Buffalo Road cemetery
• Light/dark, joy/sorrow.
Diann Cade qualified in Wellington in Architecture and Industrial Design and then worked in graphics and commercial interior design. She moved to Coromandel in 2003 and since then has painted in acrylic, interpreting the light, bush, landscape and the people that surround her.
Jan Linklater’s initial career was as a research scientist with Shell but in later life she went to a U.K. art school and studied Fine Art. In 2011 she joined her family emigrating from the U.K. to New Zealand and lived firstly on the coast near Gisborne.
Two years ago she moved permanently to Coromandel, attracted by the softer ambience and stimulating company of fellow artists.
