Blue Black Exhibition

Blue Black returns to Mint Gallery to show his latest body of work in 'MOVE' opening Friday 18th November.

Mint Gallery first had the privilege of exhibiting Blue's drawing and ceramic works in November 2014. Many of you will remember the very successful show titled Earthmovers. If you missed the show, read the review  here.

With a studio in the heart of Dunedin in historic Kind Edward Court, Blue's unassuming nature has seen him working away under the radar, while quietly accumulating a growing stack of awards, commissions and solo exhibitions. These include as a two-times finalist in the Portage Ceramic awards - New Zealand's premier ceramic awards (2006, 2014) and a finalist in the prestigious Wallace Awards (2008). He was also the  Premier Winner of 2014 Lysaght Watt Trust Art Award, and has been named a finalist in too many others to list.

Blue has been working in and studying fine arts for many years, upgrading from a Certificate in Fine Arts to a Diploma, then again to a Bachelor of Fine Arts, and finally gaining a Master of Fine Arts from the Dunedin School of Art in 2010. During this time, Blue regularly exhibited work in solo and group exhibitions across the country.

Blue has just been the first artist to do the Rick Rudd Foundation Annual Installation with 'Where the Wild Things LIve' at the Quartz Museum of Studio Ceramics.
