Nestled in Merivale you will find Studio 125 Gallery, a partnership between Heather and Neville Brown and SCAPE Public Art for the promotion and advancement of public art in Christchurch. Artist and Philanthropist Heather Brown has opened her Merivale studio to the public as a pop-up gallery, to promote and fundraise for public art in the city.
This contemporary art gallery, the first of its kind in Merivale, is hoped to ignite the area’s art scene. It will also provide an opportunity for collectors and supporters to invest in sculptures and artworks in support of public art in the city. The endeavor is a new philanthropic model supporting local Christchurch and New Zealand artists.
Deborah McCormick, Director of SCAPE Public Art, says that the presentation of work in Studio 125 Gallery is an exciting new location to exhibit. “Studio 125 Gallery offers an eclectic selection including original sculptures, paintings, photographs, ceramics and limited editions that places art at the heart of Merivale, sparking the imagination of locals. A new way of supporting public art in a positive way.”
You need to be in quick because the Studio 125 Gallery pop-up is only open for one month to the public at 125 Aikmans Rd, Merivale from Thursday March 16.
