Rippon Vineyard

Art exhibition by Eion Shanks at Rippon Vineyard, Wanaka

Last night a friend of mine from Oamaru [and ex Wanaka], Eion Shanks opened an exhibition of his paintings at Rippon Vineyard last night.

As well as owning a couple of his earlier works, which I really enjoy, I saw a few of the below at the Forester Galley in Oamaru back in March and thought it’d be nice to share them here.

One of the delights of a visit to the vineyard is the stunning view of Lake Wanaka, the rows of vines, and Ruby Island…

There are also some landscape style works at the exhibition, but due to lighting and composition being compromised by people enjoying them, they’re not featured here.

Description
An art exhibition of contemporary works, oil on board, by Eion Shanks, an Oamaru artist, held at Rippon Vineyard, Wanaka. “Painting is my way of obscuring and giving back my take on the world. I have done this steadily from the time I could hold a crayon. I paint mostly on plywood with a palette knife. I find the naturalistic surface of the woodgrain energetic and inspiring." Eion Shanks
