New Zealanders generally have a great love affair with our native birds and one New Zealand artist who certainly does is Iris Reesby.

Alfred Memelink Artspace Gallery is proud to announce her first solo exhibition at the Gallery “On a Wing and a Birdsong” opening Saturday afternoon July 21st running until Sunday August 19th.

Iris is one of Wellington regions most talented bird artists. She paints exclusively in oils and her skilful and realistic portrayals of New Zealand birds and bush will hold you spellbound. Each painting in the exhibition tells a story with well thought out quirky titles that make you smile.

In many of the paintings it almost feels as if you are walking through the bush. They’re painted with soft misty backgrounds with the featured bird as centre of attention.

Also skilled at painting florals ( Iris being a firm favourite) and animals (she is regularly painting commissions of loved pets) her exhibition will also feature some of these.

Iris will be present at Artspace Gallery over the opening weekend (21 and 22 July) to meet visitors and talk about her passion and to demonstrate her fine painting skills.
