Muse Gallery has an exhibition by John Lancashire, Pip Woods and Kerin Greville and is very generously holding a silent auction of John’s gorgeous oil painting “Bookworm”, 125 cm x 145 cm with all proceeds going to Hospice Holly Trail, for Cranford Hospice.

John, a local artist, AKA the Monday painter, has developed his own expressionist style of still life painting, with works priced between $3,000 – $4,000. When not working in his Napier hair salon, he is in his garden studio surrounded by the flowers that inspire him. Make sure you include the beautiful Muse Gallery as part of your Trail.
