White Night at Whitespace

Neal Palmer, originally from London, received a BA Hons of Fine Art from Trent University, where his practice evolved from painting to printmaking and then to sculptural installation. Upon moving to New Zealand with his wife in the 1990s, he found inspiration in New Zealand's natural treasures. Neal's vivid paintings present enlarged details of nature and use visual language to evoke strong emotional responses.

This exhibition is accompanied by Window Box Opera, a performance of well known operatic pieces for White Night. The singers work with existing indoor/outdoor environments and find frames to place themselves within and perform from.  Erika Strata & Anthony Schneider are the principal singers performing from Whitespace's balcony.

Opera 7:00pm - 8:00pm
Gallery open 7:00pm - 9:00pm
