We feel privileged to also be showing some of Habicht’s iconic black and white photographs from London in the Sixties, limited edition photographs becoming more collectable and rare, as time goes by.
Jane Molloy Wolt exhibits at Kaan Zamaan for the first time, her energetic and skilful mark making are a welcome fresh addition.
Kate de Plooy‘s contemporary fine jewellery is stunning and Fran Leitch always delights us with her precious, delicate and beautifully executed works – all made from recycled materials – her statement against our consumerism.
An installation of ceramic tiles made for ANZAC commemorations by Scott McFarlane are on display again, and more of his individual tiles and paintings are also on view in the main gallery and stockroom.
After Minhal Al Halabi‘s recent Residency, we still have some of his new mystical , magical, surreal works on plywood, plus a beautiful bust “Zenobia”.
Robin Anderson‘s gorgeous organic stoneware and raku add richness and elegance to any exhibition, and Herb Foley’s paintings always adds colour and vibrancy. Herb is currently working on a new body of work to be unveiled in November, we look forward to that with anticipation , as it promises to be another winner.
Also new to Kaan Zamaan is Anna Klekottka, she works in bronze.

Our fundraiser last year was “WE CARE” . Some artwork from this exhibition is still in stock, so we continue to raise money for the desparate children of Gaza, as the works sell.
The total amount raised so far is just over $12 780 ! $12 480 has been passed on to Kia Ora Gaza, to help with medical supplies for Gaza. THANK YOU everyone for your generosity, it was an AMAZING effort, let’s hope we bring just a little relief to some of these desparate children’s lives. Some $300 went to Save The Children.
