Bees and Birds and Bugs too.

   Having embarked on a futile journey to paint the iridescence of beetles for the first six months of her post graduate degree, Tauranga artist Katherine Steeds developed a fascination for cockroaches, before finally settling on the honey bee Apis mellifera, and has been including bees in her art ever since.  She is currently painting a series of portraits of bees with people, which can be viewed in an exhibition at Cottleston Art Gallery Tauranga in the spring.
In the meantime you can see her paintings plus work by Dick Frizzell, Adrian Wesley Martin, Angela Moritz, Mandy Williams, Keith Woodley, Whareangiangi Pita, Peter McIntyre, Laurie Steer,  Jaime Jenkins, Nicol Sanders-O'Shea and others,  11- 4.30 at Cottleston every day except Mondays.


  1. I would really like to walk through that door and look at everything!

    1. Well, I'll just have to take some pictures for you Kay before the exhibition ends... watch this space.
