Artists to watch

Anna Leary is a recent visual arts graduate from Nelson Polytechnic and through her soft, moody paintings she explores the interaction between people & places.

For her exhibition, Interface, on this month at the World of WearableArt Gallery, she photographed the decaying walls of an old warehouse on Wakefield Quay. "The patterns on some of these walls are works of art in themselves," she says. Leary won the Toss Woollaston Visual Art Scholarship in 2000.
