Local artist selected for NZ Art Show
Christchurch painter Joanne Webber has been selected as one of 500 artists to exhibit in the New
Zealand Art Show at the TSB Arena in Wellington from July 29 to August 1. The show introduces emerging artists to the public and sells their works at affordable prices.
Webber’s works in the show are exploring environmental issues and kiwiana icons. She likes to deal with issues by using a touch of humour alongside familiar representations of everyday life.
“My paintings are slightly ironical if people want to look hard enough, and include autobiographical elements,” she says.
In recent years, Webber has exhibited in Christchurch and the North Island and she has a busy schedule booked for the remainder of the year.
This is the show’s seventh year. Every year around 1000 artists submit their works in the hope of being
selected by the organisers, the NZ Affordable Art Trust.
