Fauna – cation! an exhibition by NZ Art Guild Member Helen Parsons

An exhibition of quirky and iconic paintings by acclaimed artist/author Helen Parsons will be on show in August at Terrace Downs Resort.

The very clever and extraordinary range of works from Helen, will open at Terrace Downs Resort on Friday 5th August 2011.

The title of the exhibition “Fauna-cation!”, was inspired by Helen’s love of wordplays and is typical of her work which is often parable-like with many messages, some obvious and some not obvious, with strong themes of preservation of New Zealand’s native Flora & Fauna.

Helen delivers her message in the form of bold and vibrant colours, often with a twist of humour added.

Helen is an award-winning, self-taught artist and resides in Clarks Beach, South/West of Auckland with her husband and four children.

She has an impressive biography as an artist and is the recipient of numerous national awards, including the KG Fraser Award for the most outstanding painting at the Royal Easter Show in 2005. Her works are very sought after and popular, as they resonate who we are as kiwis.

Helen has also been widely published in various magazines including a two-page article published about her art in Her Magazine in 2009, and a two page spread in Best of Artists, Worldwide Watermedia, vol II in the USA.

The exhibition opening night which includes meeting with the artist in person and a creative fine dining menu with an asian kiwi fusion; an event that is fast becoming a popular occasion for everyone.

The exhibition will be opened by Rachael Inch, Arts Director, on Friday 5th August at 6:30pm. The exhibition will be open to the public, until 01st September.

Terrace Downs offers a special menu and Accommodation package as part of the exhibition experience.
