On Tuesday evening, Whitespace Contemporary Art hosted the launch of Robin Woodward‘s book “Mary McIntyre – Painter”. The evening marked also the opening of an exhibition of work by Mary McIntyre, as well as an exhibition of pieces by metal artist Greer Twiss. This is a subjective and incomplete selection of impressions of the evening.
In the top row we see Gallery director Deborah White in front of Mary’s painting “Deborah Whitespace”, then gallery co-director Kenneth Johnson and the book, and art critic TJ McNamara in front of his portrait. The second row shows (left to right) painter Jan Nigro with Rita Webster, and Herta with Mary McIntyre at the signing of the book.
The book by Robin Woodward is published by Whitespace, Auckland, May 2010. Mary McIntyre is represented by Deborah White of Whitespace. Robin Woodward is also the author of the book “Steve Woodward” (the sculptor who featured a number of times on this blog – no relation of hers), also published by Whitespace.
Greer Twiss was kind enough to pose with one of his larger works – the dog that goes with it is obscured.
Live musical entertainment was provided by Jonathan Besser (keyboard), with John Bell (vibraphone) and Peter Scott (bass).
