For one hundred years plus, Windsor Gallery, 386 St Asaph Street, has transformed our art through its exquisite framing and has supported emerging and established artists through exhibitions in its contemporary gallery.
Owners Tracey and Philip Wynands are proud to present exhibition Kiss Gustav by New York photographic artist Lisa Powers. Inspired by Gustav Klimt, Lisa’s style is described as “enigmatic with a slightly surreal narrative”. Co-exhibiting with Lisa is artist Wilhelmus Ruifrok; his exhibition, Inline Form, deals with abstract realities. The exhibition finishes Saturday October 13, but some Powers and Ruifrok works will still be exhibited after this date.
Other artists regularly represented are: Andris Apse, Philip Beadle, John Burns, Keith Morant, Kees Bruin, sculptor Anneke Bester, and charcoal artist Mehrdad Tahan, to name a few. “We showcase contemporary artists of all genres,” Tracey says. “It’s a rich mix of over 100 magnificent works!”
A perfectly formed art space with a multi award-winning framing service, Windsor Gallery is a century-long Christchurch icon, echoing its creative vibrancy.
Formerly on High Street, the gallery and framing workshop now resides at 386 St Asaph Street, east of Fitzgerald Ave, with easy off-street parking.
Owners since 2009, Philip and Tracey Wynands offer every custom-made framing solution under the sun – from affordable and simple through to exquisite ornate gilded framing with protective museum-quality glass.
Windsor Gallery is sumptuously aesthetic, showcasing around 15 South Island artists with a diversity to appeal to all fancies, including the thought-provoking Rhonye Mcllroy, renowned photographer Andris Apse, Philip Beadle and Sue Syme. Wilhelmus Ruifrok, a framer at the gallery’s workshop, displays his own enigmatically intricate work. Artists’ prints and sculpture are also on offer.
