In June 2023 Merthyr joined a daily life drawing group at L'Academie de la Grande Chaumière in Montparnasse, Paris.

The drawings done over this period form part of the exhibition opening on

Saturday 23 March in Matakana   starting at 3 pm - 6 pm. On Sunday 24 until

Sunday 31 we will be open from 10 am - 2 pm.

Call on 0210536473 to make an appointment to view.

"It was fascinating to work amongst a group of eccentric Parisian artists and to  feel integrated in a small way into the Parisian art world. They say that all things French have their origins in the French Revolution and I had first hand experience of this.  The group dynamic was fascinating and I was interested to be part of it."

If you would like to see what is in the show we can email you a contact sheet of images of the drawings with an indication of size.  Prices range from  $400 - $1500.

Some of the drawings are available to view in the "Drawings" tab of the website.

While in Paris Merthyr discovered a wholesaler of original vintage gallery posters which are printed litho or screen-print on heavy fine art paper.

The posters will be available for viewing during the exhibition.  Have a look in "Shop" to see

available stock. If you take a note of which poster interests you we will be able to access it from storage to show you.

Email here if you would like more information about the posters or drawings.
