So very excited to be part of this, my first Manawatu Arts Trail experience. I have been totally blown away with the amount of support and workshops that have been made available to me as an artist. You will be able to view the works below, and many more, in person over the Arts Trail weekend on 16th and 17th October 2021. The images below will be sold through the Square Edge Community Arts website, should you be interested in purchasing a piece please email communityarts@ca.org.nz. – thank you. If you click on the image it will take you to a post that describes the work in more detail.

The Semi-Abstracted Landscape

Gill Allen – “Travelling through the Manawatu” Soft Pastel – app 540 x 160 mm each piece

Acrylic, water-soluble crayon, charcoal and soft pastel make up these two dynamic landscapes. These works were a pivotal moment in following my research into semi-abstracted landscape. A very exciting moment!
