Exposure to Chelsea Crowd

An exhibition of 25 New Zealand artists is on at New York’s Agora Gallery from 24 April through 15 May. “‘Made in New Zealand’ presents a fresh perspective on a country that provides continual inspiration for its talented artists,” the gallery website explains. “Auckland’s influential Flagstaff Gallery has brought the work of some of its most dynamic and enthralling artists to New York, and visitors will gain a new appreciation for the riches of nature and culture that New Zealand has to offer.” Dunedin artist Euan McDougall is one of those to show. “Each of the 25 artists is showing two works; so there are 50 works in total,” McDougall said. “It will hopefully expose my work to a huge new market. There are more than 15,000 people on the invite list.” Other artists to exhibit include Emma Butler, Dave Gunson, Alexis Neal and Fraser Williamson.
