Friends of the Gallery were invited to join us in a rare opportunity to visit Gregor Kregar’s working studio. Timed to coincide with the culmination of Transit Cloud, a new public artwork for New Lynn that Kregar has completed in collaboration with Sara Hughes and Davor Popadic, we hosted a barbecue and behind-the-scenes event at the artist’s studio.
Transit Cloud will be unveiled to the public for the first time, and Kregar’s studio will display a wide range of works available for purchase.
Saturday 1 November also coincided with the re-opening of Te Uru gallery (formally Lopdell House) in Titirangi, where one of Kregar’s two metre gnomes will welcome guests, and an installation of his waxworks will be displayed in the window. The day provided a fantastic opportunity to go West and visit Te Uru (open to the public 10-4.30pm on Saturday 1 November) before visiting the studio in New Lynn.
