"Fishing" 16th November to 29th November

November 16, 2014

Ngaio Fine Arts in association with nzfishing.com invite you to the Preview of our Special Exhibition:


Brown Trout by Michael Scheele

"Brown Trout" by Michael Scheele, Special Guest Artist

Preview: Sunday 16th November - 4pm

Exhibition continues to Saturday 29th November at 53B Ottawa Road, Ngaio, Wellington.

In this Exhibition we will be featuring paintings by our special guest artist Michael Scheele who specializes in very fine and accurate watercolours of fishing flies and fish.

We will also be showing works by Colin Wynn (Official Artist of the Royal New Zealand Navy since 1983), along with works by our top artists Brian Baxter, Eugenea and Jacky Pearson, as well as some beautiful decorative early original prints in the fishing tradition.

At the Preview on Sunday 16th November, Doug Stevens of nzfishing.com will be giving a demonstration of the Art of Fly Fishing at 4:30pm (weather permitting) and will be inviting others to participate.

This exhibition is a "must see" for the dedicated fishing person and a great opportunity to find that perfect fishing gift. There will be a selection of fishing merchandise from Michael Scheele, including his 2015 calendar. Regrettably Michael is unable to attend.

My work has been sold internationally, including Japan and the USA."
