The Southland Museum & Art Gallery Niho o te Taniwha is pleased to present Art in the Park, an exhibition of photographic work from local artist Dot Mullay. In this exhibition, Dot is showcasing one of the iconic jewels of Invercargill – Queens Park. For over a year, the artist has been immersed in the environment of our local park and garden, capturing Southland’s dramatic seasonal shift from spring to winter. In the style of photo impressionism, Dot’s camera and computer become the paintbrushes as she creates images, rather than recording them. The emphasis is on light and colour. The highly textured images have a painterly feel and portray the essence of each season. The results are Dot’s refreshing and engaging interpretation of the local, living, and natural beauty of Invercargill’s central park.
At the heart of the exhibition is Dot’s continued and consistent exploration, for over 50 years, of her photographic practice. Dot has received signicant national and local awards and she is a member of the Southland and New Zealand Photographic Societies. In 2014, Dot was awarded a Licentiateship of the Photographic Society of New Zealand (LPSNZ).
This exhibition will be on display in the Community Access Gallery from Saturday, 27 January until Sunday, 6 May 2018 at the Southland Museum & Art Gallery, 108 Gala Street, Invercargill.
