What’s On: Mary Horn- Works revisited
To 3 December, Forrester Gallery, Oamaru
A retrospective of 20 years’ artistic practice by North Otago artist and Dominican nun Mary Horn reveals two decades of painting fueled by her deeply held religious faith. The exhibition documents the 80-year-old artist’s creative pathway and includes abstract sky scenes, investigations into nature and local landscapes, works that explore the human issues of struggle, and the search for personal truth and inner sacredness.
It includes a selection of new canvases that demonstrate her deep engagement with the medium of paint. culturewaitaki.org.nz
