A Boy’s Story by Beverly Rhodes
"A Boy's Story", 2011, oil on canvas

City Art is proud to present a new selection of works on paper and canvas by Wellington artist Beverly Rhodes. Opening tonight, A Boy’s Story uses the Romantic tradition of courtly portraiture to allude to themes of trauma, loss and childhood memory. In aligning the inexpressive demeanour or masked appearance of her subject with the beautifully painted depiction of fabric, feather and skin, Rhodes creates a beguiling sense of disquiet and unfinished narrative. Come along and join us for a glass of wine tonight from 5.30pm or call in to City Art to see the show before it finishes on 19 May.

Join us in the gallery/workshop as we provide practical solutions for the framing, display, installation of works of art, and information on new exhibitions and events.
