The best of New Zealand watercolour will be on show at Splash 2014, opening at the Michael Fowler Centre on 13 November.

Watercolour New Zealand’s popular annual exhibition features over 200 paintings by New Zealand’s top watercolourists. The exhibition runs from November 13 to 23. From noon to 2pm daily, visitors can watch artists demonstrating watercolour technique.

From a small group of artists in Wellington in 1975, Watercolour New Zealand has grown to a national organisation with a membership of 400.

Guest artist Jacky Pearson is well-known both nationally and internationally as an artist and teacher. Her paintings are in the permanent collection of the International Museum of Watercolours in Mexico and have been published in books featuring the best of international watercolour. Jacky has taught workshops in Australia, India, Belgium, Holland and the UK as well as throughout New Zealand. In December, Jacky and her work will be featured on the Sky Arts channel in an episode of Put Some Colour in your Life, a series showcasing many of Australasia’s best artists.

Jacky will give a demonstration between 12 noon and 2pm on Saturday 15 November. On Sunday 16 November, the demonstrator will be Phil Dickson, author of the recently published Phil Dickson’s Wellington.

Entry and catalogues are free and all paintings are for sale.
