Exhibition opening and artist talk


Weasel Gallery is pleased to welcome Denys Watkins to Kirikiriroa to present Nancy’s Big Day Out, a solo exhibition.

With Nancy and her hair (from Ernie Bushmiller’s comic strip) as Watkins’ muse, the distinctive motif (a furry looking caterpillar form slugged upon Nancy’s head) operates as a unifier for the minestrone-esque offering. As per Watkins’ style of constructing complex compositions of vibrant hues with layers of watercolour and gouache, Nancy’s Big Day Out exemplifies Watkins’ innovative and intuitive approach to making.

Please join Weasel Gallery for the exhibition opening which will run from 1-3pm. The opening will begin with an artist talk by Denys at 1pm. All are welcome.

*If you are feeling sick or unwell, please stay home. The gallery have hand sanitiser available as well as a QR code for checking in as you arrive.
