Alice Berry Exhibition 
Vibrant, textural colours reminiscent of warm evenings in Samoa are the inspiration behind artist Alice Berry’s latest body of work, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Insect life and the intoxicating sweet smell of tropical flowers add to Alice’s memory of her travels to the islands. These reference points inform her 20 paintings which are a wonderfully abstract look at how, in an age of constant photo taking, sometimes the best travel images are the ones that live on in the mind. A Midsummer Night’s Dream by Alice Berry is on display at Endemicworld gallery. October 24 - November 3. 62 Ponsonby Rd, Grey Lynn. Endemicworld.com
