Jean Marr Studio

Wellington's newest gallery, the Jean Marr Studio, has opened in Island Bay creating an oasis of elegance in the southern suburb.

It sets out to blend the best of New Zealand and international art with artisan gifts and objets d'art. Visitors will discover a very stylish ambience when the step into the intimate space off Island Bay's Parade.

For their first exhibition they feature the paintings of Ian Logan; he is particularly well-known for capturing the essence of Wellington's coastline. Regular walks to paint and draw near his house always provide more than enough inspiration for his oeuvre.

Sculpture is well represented with outstanding bronze sculptors, Jenny Hartley and Betsy Kremer. Jenny's work has a quirky edge with layers of history, myth and ecological concern embedded within. Betsy Kremer's work records scenarios of everyday life around us, transforming the intractable bronze into joyful life.

There is also an elegant selection of gifts and objets d'art.
