Auckland Art Fair

The little gallery on a big mission

MD Gallery has made history as the first Northland art gallery to be accepted to exhibit at the Auckland Art Fair.

The Auckland Art Fair will be held in Auckland at The Cloud from 24th – 28th February and will showcase art by more than 150 artists , exhibited by over 40 of the best galleries of the wider Pacific Rim region.

We are so very pleased to exhibit artists Rosy & Rich – aka Rosie Parsonson and Richard Darbyshire, a Whangarei-based duo who specialise in traditional mediums of ceramics, painting and sculpture.

Rosy & Rich have been working collaboratively for 13 years and they are excited for their art to be shown on the world stage. Richard Darbyshire moulds and sculpts their creations through wheel throwing and hand building techniques in clay, while Rosie Parsonson graphically etches and paints to give each creative piece life with her engraved lines and infused colours.

“Our work is influenced by human stories and we especially love to capture the street appeal aesthetic of our art. We seek to find a classic and contemporary beauty in adornment and decoration, portraiture and the gaze, graphic art and small furry animals,” says Rosie.

This is an exceptional opportunity for these two talented artists to take the international art world by storm. We are looking forward to rubbing shoulders with some of the best galleries and artists in New Zealand and internationally.

A Virtual Art Fair has also been confirmed from 3-14 November, 2021.
