We are pleased to invite you and your guests to the opening reception of Alistair’s inaugural solo exhibition.
‘In The Style of Hiroshige’
Opening reception: Thursday 3rd June 5-7pm
‘I got hooked on the ukiyo-e (woodblock prints) style through an exhibition of Ando Hiroshige’s fans at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London – bold flat expressive colours, clean line drawings and stories of another era and culture. I have tried to imagine how Hiroshige (1797-1858) and his contemporary Hokusai may have shown views of modern Wellington, Auckland, Queenstown, Wanaka, Sydney, Melbourne and Taranaki if they were alive today’. – Alistair McDonald
