Pauline Denton is both one of the organisers and one of the exhibitors in the this years Christian Arts Festival, run as part of ARTS in the VILLE 2023, at the ‘Lighthouse’ part of Magnify Church at 118 Commercial Road, Helensville.
For as long as she can remember, she has loved to draw. Completing a Fine Art Degree at
Sheffield Polytechnic in the UK in 1984, she began working with ‘differently abled’ adults tutoring arts in 2000 and loves to celebrate their instinctive creativity. Currently running an Arts and Activities Programme for L’Arche Mount Tabor. Some of the spontaneous art of those she works with will also be on display. Look out in particular for the beautiful works of Rachael Clarke.
In her spare time Pauline enjoys letting the paint itself take the lead in creating the work and
developing what she finds within its lines and marks, such as her ‘Green Bird’ painting where she discovered she had created a bird and accentuated it by adding painted feathers.
Artist, Astrologer, Musician are just a few strings to the bow of Warren Reid, former first violinist with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. Born in Australia, Warren and his wife are now living in Kaukapakapa.
Since 1980, and largely inspired by paintings he saw in Europe, Warren began painting in oils. Applying vibrant Australian colours that are full of bright light, he followed the artists of the Victorian Heidelberg school in producing impressionist paintings with a unique Australian character. His works have been exhibited at the Macquarie Gallery and the Tap Gallery in Sydney. Having moved with his wife to New Zealand in 2019, Warren continues to play violin locally in the Helensville area and enjoys painting New Zealand landscapes using a very different colour pallet.
Warren will be one of the exhibitors in the Christian Arts Festival, run as part of ARTS in the VILLE 2023, at the ‘Lighthouse’ part of Magnify Church at 118 Commercial Road, Helensville from 10am-4pm October 21st-23rd.
