2017 ended with a glorious finish to the five month exhibition 'Ringing True' I was indeed greatly honoured by the Fo Guang Yuan Art Gallery for this opportunity to showcase my work in their beautiful Christchurch Temple. They have now offered me their Auckland Venue. This is much larger than Christchurch and many of my paintings will be on show there. The opening ceremony for this exhibition will be on August 4th and the show runs until December 31st.

The 'Ringing True' exhibition of over 250 works closed on Christmas Eve and this was quickly followed up with a request to speak publicly to many invited guests on my work philosophy and art in general.

In February the newly formed Morant Foundation presented its inaugural exhibition of over thirty artists at the Art Centre of Christchurch. The Foundation underwrote, selected and curated this wonderful eclectic exhibition. Many artists were exhibiting for the first time and presented their best work with great pride. Four sponsored awards were donated from local art galleries and art suppliers and a special cash award was presented by the Morant Foundation.
