A short drive along the edges of Lake Taupo to Waitahanui brings you to a spectacular gallery with two artists, sculptures, paintings, woodturned art, clay art, photography and outdoor art.
Robbie Graham produces award winning creations in wood-turned artworks, sculptures and colourful kinetic garden art. The wood-turned pieces resembling floral buds and opening flowers are amazing and not surprisingly have won awards and are commissioned by corporate clients. This is an excellent selection of sculpture works especially if looking for garden artworks. see www.wildwoodgallery.co.nz
Sue Graham creates acrylic and watercolour paintings of the local environment and I could not resist a watercolour of the lake called ‘Look’ which will appear for sale in coming months. A piece with a couple sitting on the lake edge pointing to something in the distance, it struck me as simply perfectly proportioned which is so necessary but hard to achieve.
