Art on the Quay


North Canterbury watercolourist, Ivan Button, opens an exhibition of new works that see a more expressive application of wet-on-wet techniques to his traditional watercolour painting. Involved in art since the 1960s with a background as a graphic artist and illustrator, he is committed to plein-air painting as his starting point, sketching on location and gathering information and references for studio works.  He is in good company, his choice of location shared in a history of painting of the Waimakariri by Rona Fleming, Vivienne Mountford and Olivia Spencer Bower.  As a watercolourist, Button also facilitates workshops, believing in the value of ‘artists sharing together’.  His interests span family, friends, sport, music, good coffee, the opportunity to laugh – and his faith in God.


Ivan Button, This or That – the two worlds of Ivan Button.
