The annual Kaiapoi Art Expo was on the 22nd-24th of July held at the Kaiapoi Workingmens Club. The KAE is a well established art show that is a wonderful showcase of North Canterbury Artists. This year it was fantastic to see an arts week in the lead up to the exhibition with art demonstrations and workshops provided for the general public. This year I chose to share a panel with my dear friend Jan Campbell. As our works are so different from each other they really complemented each other really well, and we both received a lot of positive comments regarding our artworks.
