With the success of Martin Hill – Fragile Canvas exhibition in Wanaka the directors of the Arthouse in Christchurch are exhibiting four of the works in Pop Up II which opens Tuesday 18 October and runs till the 23rd.
Philippa and I are pleased with their support for this work and glad that the long suffering residents of earthquake-torn Christchurch will be able to experience it too.

A solo exhibition opening at Gallery 33 in our home town of Wanaka was a very special event because many friends and art lovers attended. There was a party atmosphere with plenty of positive feedback about the work.
The film makers were there to capture it all on film and wrap up their story of our year’s sculpture-making in the local environment. For Philippa and I it was a satisfying culmination of a year’s continuous creative activity.
Martin Hill – Fragile Canvas will also be exhibited at the Otago Museum from 16th to 19th November as part of Otago University Science Teller Festival along with the premiere of the film “Fragile Canvas” by James Blake and Joey Bania on 16th November at the Regent Theatre, Dunedin.
With such a positive response we intend to exhibit Martin Hill – Fragile Canvas in other venues so enquiries from galleries are welcome.
Warm thanks to Melissa Reimer and her team at Gallery 33 Wanaka.
