KCPS member Hal Gimpelson will have a second solo show in the Art Space at the Paraparaumu Library from 23 August through 11 September.
It includes 15 abstract close-ups of rust and graffiti on railroad cars and prints of sunsets. Some of these images have been seen at KCPS meetings but have been refined. Some of the sunsets are now printed about 1.5 metres wide. To whet your appetites, below are a couple of the images on show.

For poetry readers, three of Hal‘s writings have also been selected by three artists to create new works. It’s a fascinating show combining writer and visual art at an annual show entitled Con-Fluent at the Emerging Light Gallery in Plimmerton from now (it started on 14 August) to late September.
A metal piece by eco-jeweller JoAnna Mere is entitled Exhale/Poumoana with words from Hal’s Never Stopping, a felting work by Birgit Moffatt based on his Carving Aotearoa, and a third piece composed of layered and carved photos based on his We Can’t Photograph Every Cloud.
