Juliet Best: Beautiful Earth

Thursday 4th-Thursday 25th April 2019

In this exhibition, Juliet Best shares her love of New Zealand through a series of new paintings. Each work reflects her deep gratitude for our 'Beautiful Earth' - her art is the visual expression of her love for her family, her life and her home.

Juliet’s work is characterised by a rich palette of turquoise blues, greens and greys, featuring gold leaf to illuminate ridgelines and horizons. The gold accents allow the light to dance on the surface of her work, changing as the viewer moves around them.

Growing up in Lower Moutere, Juliet has a deep respect and love for the Nelson/Tasman region. Her father authored a book on his birthplace in Appleby, recounting the history of Nelson's 'Best Island', which was named after his pioneering great-grandparents. Several works in the exhibition feature Nelson/Tasman & Marlborough landscapes, as places she holds dear.

Please join us at the opening preview on Thursday, 4th April at 5.30pm. Juliet and her family will be in attendance.

FUNDRAISER: Juliet is donating 100% of the proceeds of one framed limited edition print to Appleby School. Former All Black and Appleby School Board Member, Chris Jack, will be joining us at the opening.
