June 1, 2019 – June 28, 2019
Take a Journey Through Art is Raglan artist Ro Fawcett Smithâ€™s latest exhibition at the Old School Arts Centre from Saturday 1 June to Friday 28 June.
The retrospective collection is a peek into her work from landscapes to contemporary and more.
A member of Raglan Art collective, Ro has a background in architectural draughting and many years in advertising, picking up a paint brush seemed a natural transition to retirement.
A year spent doing a refresher art course was stimulating and inspiring as acrylic colours on canvas became paintings. Developing a distinct style using layers of paint and large brush strokes, created
land and seascapes that were both bold and colourful. Painting in large format mostly 1 x 1 metre or larger, the works catch the eye.
She has exhibited in many galleries throughout New Zealand and as far afield as Australia, the USA and Korea. Raglan Art collective is a group of local artists and was established to provide opportunities to collaborate, support, share and show their creativity and diversity.
