In 1993 on Friday 2nd April at 5 30pm “Going Solo 1 “was opened as an ‘experiment’ at the Academy of Fine Arts located at that time in Buckle St Wellington. It involved 9 Wellington artists and 7 Dunedin artists.

The artists included Peter Coates, Mirek Smisek, Jeanne Macaskill, seven Dunedin artists : Patricia Tough, Els Noordhoff, Victoria Gray, Margaret Jackson, Zuna Wright, Rob Piggott, and Betty Fraser. The list also included Brian Carmody, Patti Meads, Vivian Manthel, Eric Collett, Judith Trevelyan and Shona Mc Farlane.

Some 23 years later its legacy is found in SOLO 40 featuring 10 artists from across New Zealand showing very diverse exciting work.

Ewan McDougall , Tania Dally, Graeme Hitchcock, James Harcourt, Alan Skates, Maria Bozina, Kirsty Black, Bee Doughty- Pratt, Pamella Annsouth and Greg Chaston.

All of these artists are aware of the tradition they need to keep alive and all of them have a passion to create which is evident in this powerful show.
