"Color and Light", an Exhibition by Peg Moorhouse

At CoCA, Centre of Contemporary Art, gallery in Christchurch, until 6 February.

Previous names of the works seem to have got lost. The pieces have been very cleverly grouped and re-named accordingly. About 10 pieces of Peg's true damask work have been hung along with about another 20 of her recent works.

Everything on the floor, when we first arrived.

Peg and co-curator and tapestry artist Marilyn Rea-Menzies survey the selection.

Title Wall, with "Red Glow" & "Yellow Glow"

"Moonlight on Water 1", "Moonlight on Water 2" & "Moonlight on Water 3"

"Bush Riches 1", "Bush Riches 2" & "Bush Riches 3"
"Spring Songs 1" & "Spring Songs 2"

"Harvest Textures 1", "Harvest Textures 2",
"Autumn Tones 1", "Autumn Tones 2", "Autumn Tones 3",
"On the Shore 1" & "On the Shore 2"

" On the Shore 1", "On the Shore 2", "Purple Glow" & "Zodiac"

Carol Bull (Peg's god-daughter) opened the show.

Wil Henderson, Marilyn, Peg and me; the black and white "uniform" was not planned!

CoCA Director Warren Feeney and Peg are both happy.

Wonderful exhibition. Isn't it great to have so much space around each piece so it can be viewed in its own right. Thrilled for you Peg.
