Geisen Wines Art

Morri Street Cafe Gallery

Recent Exhibition  –  Juliana Trolove

 

Juliana Trolove 1

Trained in graphic design and metalwork Juliana, many moons ago, graduated from CPIT. Having moved to the beautiful Metropolis of Nelson she is rediscovering art, especially painting.

When she reaches 10,000 hours she will be able to say she is a painter of things and ideas. But until then she is on a journey of learning and seeing, to try and represent her idea of what is there.

Developing a personal style is frustrating and terrifying, somewhat all consuming, but ultimately it is fun!!

Local art has always been an important element of the cafe and, once again, we will give local artists the opportunity to showcase their work in a public place to people from all walks of life. We strongly believe that art needs to be made more accessible for the wider public by displaying art works in a cafe.

At Giesen Winery art is also important to the Giesen brothers, so when we approached them to sponsor the gallery it was an easy ‘yes’. We will continue displaying a huge variety of art and many of the artworks will be for sale. Each exhibition will run for approximately four weeks.
