Kerry Fenton-Johns Art Exhibition

Dunedin Airport will this month open a special solo art exhibition by leading Otago artist Kerry Fenton-Johns, featuring pohutukawa - the New Zealand Christmas tree.

The November 15 - December 10 exhibition includes 12 paintings all showing pohutukawas in flower. Fenton-Johns said she will send a donation to Project Crimson from the sales to help ''plant New Zealand red''.

“In Dunedin we generally have to wait much longer than the rest of New Zealand for the pohutukawa to come into full bloom so I thought we can enjoy down here at Christmas time this year with the exhibition,” Kerry said.

“I am just so happy these days painting pohutukawa and people should look at the Project Crimson website to learn more about pohutukawa and rata trees.”
