Ivan Button Exhibition
Orion Powerhouse Gallery

Ivan Button's background was in the Advertising Industry where he trained and worked as a graphic artist and illustrator.

 

He currently works in watercolour and in oils. While his subject matter will vary from Still Life to Landscapes, his passion is for New Zealand scenes along with villages of France and Italy. 

 

In more recent times Ivan has pursued an interest in “abstraction/expressionism”
He enthusiastically runs the ‘Nearly Serious Artists Workshops’ alongside various Art groups, believing in the value and encouragement of artists sharing together. 

 

The Ivan Button Exhibition is open daily 10am to 4pm from Friday 1st January until Sunday 24th January 2021.

Birds Eye View Exhibition
Orion Powerhouse Gallery

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Akaroa gallery has been closed and we're delighted to bring you our first ever online gallery exhibition.

Four New Zealand native bird artists are migrating south for the “Birds Eye View” exhibition at the Orion Powerhouse Gallery in Akaroa.

From pastels and scratchboards by Karen Rankin Neal, to oils by Carol Theologo, drippy watercolours and ink by Rachel Walker, and photoart and mixed media by Judi Lapsley Miller, each artist brings a unique style and perspective to our native birds.
