Toi Ora: Andrew Blythe Exhibition

In association with Tim Melville Gallery, Andrew Blythe’s 2014 solo exhibition will be showing for the month of May at Toi Ora Gallery.

As the 2012 Attitude Artistic Achievement Award winner, Andrew has helped pave the way for outsider artists to be seen as part of the contemporary art world. He is a prolific artist whose work speaks of the process of art making and the visual communication of ideas and emotions.

Andrew’s work resides in local and international art collections, including the Auckland Art Gallery, the James Wallace Arts Trust, and the Sackner Archive of Visual and Concrete Poetry in Miami, USA. Exhibiting his work over the last ten years, Andrew commands a vibrant and original perspective on contemporary art. He is currently one of the artists in residence at Toi Ora.

Toi Ora Gallery welcomes to the preview from 6pm-8pm on Thursday 1 May.
