Leading artist to exhibit work in Riversdale

Southland Times     14 July 2006

by Sonia Gerken

A painter whose work has been given to royals and is held in collections throughout the world is to be the guest artist at the Riversdale arts mixed media exhibition, which opens next week.
Peter Jean Caley, of Geraldine, will bring seven of his imposing oils to the exhibition and run a painting workshop when he visits the Northern Southland township.
Riversdale Arts president Lesley Clarke says while Caley may not be a household name, he is considered one of this country's leading artists.
A reproduction of his painting The Flutes was presented to Prince Charles during his last visit to New Zealand and the original sold for $60,000 in the United States this year.
Caley's painting of New Zealand's Black Magic yacht hangs on permanent display in Auckland's National Maritime Museum.
His work is best described as inspirational realism and his subjects include Maori portraits and artefacts, scenery, birds and animals, Mrs Clarke says.
In its 33rd year, the exhibition continues to be one of the largest mixed-media exhibitions in Southland and Otago.
About 90 artists from throughout the country have submitted almost 600 pieces for display and sale this year.
Among the work were pieces from Christchurch jeweller Koji Miyazaki, paintings by Karen Baddock and glass work by last year's guest artist Peter Viesnik.
"We keep trying to maintain a high standard," Mrs Clarke says.
The exhibition's reputation enabled it to draw from a wide variety of artists and organisers are always looking to support interesting new artists or locals, she says.
Organising the event is a big ask for the small group of volunteers but it is just a case of getting on and doing it, Mrs Clarke says.
The exhibition's popular invitation-only opening night at the Riversdale Community Centre is on July 21 and public sessions open from July 22 to July 30.
