Activate Vacant Spaces - POP-UP ART GALLERY

The new Pop-Up Art Gallery on Devonport Rd features works by respected and sought-after international artists Sue MacDougall, Shaun McLean, and John Baxter. 



Recognized for her bold and colourful work in different mediums that create structure, depth, movement and texture. An Abstract – Acrylic, Encaustic & Cold Wax Artist Sue has exhibited in Greece, Italy and London, won the Top Tiee Award at Exhibeo – France. Sue is represented by a gallery in Canary Wharf, London and exhibited at the Parallax Art Fair, Chelsea, London. Sue also represented NZ in the Exhibition for 100 years anniversary of WWI Gallipoli in Thessaloniki and Lemnos island where the NZers had their hospital.





Well known in the art sector in Australia Shaun McLean now resides here and will be exhibiting his latest work of abstract expressionism using acrylics and mixed media. 

Shaun will also be painting new works within the Pop Up Art Gallery.



Well known from Yorkshire, England, John is an artist, photographer, poet, songwriter, musician, prop maker, and furniture designer with a Diploma in Creative Industries. ​

The context of John's artwork centers around the inter-connectivity of life forces from the cellular to the celestial; in particular the attraction, repulsion, or grouping of objects due to electrical, magnetic, or chemical bonding.​

John's current work has been inspired by the silence of introspection of the covid era, followed by the somewhat chaotic emergence back into the public realm - traffic, people, illness, litter, and noise.
