‘Nurturing Natures’, a collaborative exhibition by 12 artists, closed its doors after a successful talk of-the-town opening night, that saw the Upper Hutt show extended for a further two weeks and approximately $6,000 worth of sales* spread across the three weeks.
I managed to catch up with each of the artists in person – Rachael Beulah, Lynn Dick, Christine Elks, Gemma Goodwin, Tanya Green, Sheree Matheson-Harris, Rachael Hay, Helen Lenihan, Marie Lotz, Beverley Moore, Margaret Mundell and Karen Pearce – to see what they each took away from the event and to discuss in depth one of their favourite pieces of work on show.

* A percentage of the exhibition sales was donated to the Upper Hutt Women’s Centre as an acknowledgement of the work the Centre does in providing a wellbeing service to the local community, nurturing women and helping them create positive change in their lives.
