Melbourne Art Fair is thrilled to announce the inaugural recipient of the ‘Stoneleigh New Zealand Artist Grant’ is Auckland photographic artist Kate van der Drift. Kate unveils five new images developed with the Artist Grant in her exhibition with Sanderson Contemporary (Auckland) Stand A3 at Melbourne Art Fair.
The new images, an extension of her Water Slows As It Rounds The Bend series, continue her investigation into the fragile ecology and layered past of the Hauraki Plains south-east of Auckland.
Visit the Stoneleigh Wild Valley Bar, which sees nature taking over a space in Melbourne Art Fair Riding Hall, and enjoy a glass of Stoneleigh Wild Valley Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Noir.
