Sue Weterings

To showcase the best artworks by regional artists in all media, Taylor-Jensen Fine Arts is proud to include in its exhibition schedule the photographic artistry of Palmerston North-based photographer Sue Weterings.  Antarctica: Art Exhibition is a selection of images illustrating a magical and fragile wilderness of landscapes and wildlife captured by Sue Weterings during a National Geographic Society Explorer journey to the southern-most continent. Sue writes, “I am excited to be having my first photographic exhibition Antarctica at Taylor–Jensen Fine Arts. It allows me to share these images of landscapes and wildlife, both faced with the very real threats of climate change, with a large audience.”   The artist will exhibit 20-25 images presented in mounts; framing choices will be left to the purchaser.  This stunning exhibition will open on Friday 21st October (Labour Weekend) and continue through 11th November.  A formal opening to meet and talk with the artist will be held on Friday evening 27th October from 5.30-7pm at the gallery, 33 George Street, Palmerston North.  The public is warmly invited to attend and share in the excitement of Sue’s first full-scale public exhibition.

Sue Weterings is a passionate photographer whose love for this art form has grown and evolved since she studied for a Diploma in Photography at Universal College of Learning (UCOL) Palmerston North ten years ago. Having gone on to win numerous awards for her imagery; self-publish five books and being awarded “Honorary Membership” of the Photographic Society of New Zealand, Sue continues to explore the different genres of photography as she develops her own style.

Being a keen traveller and interested in the environmental challenges being faced in many remote parts of the world, Sue has developed a focus in her endeavour to capture the relationship between the natural environment and the various plant and animal species that live in the many ecosystems that she has chosen to explore and capture via digital media. Sue enjoys the opportunity that photography provides to share her experiences, inspire others and invite conversation. When not travelling, Ms Weterings can be found photographing in her favourite part of the world, the beautiful Marlborough Sounds of Aotearoa.

When not holding a camera in her hands, Sue Weterings might be found working part-time as a Training Consultant for local businesses in the Central Districts region drawing on her expertise and experience as the former Managing Director of Leadership Development New Zealand Ltd, a position she held for almost 15 years.

“I enjoy the challenge and opportunity that photography provides to see through a new paradigm, add value to people’s lives and express my own creativity and style. I particularly enjoy landscape photography, travel, natural history, fine art and people.” All these things combined for the artist in her journey to the Antarctic which was truly an adventure of a lifetime.

Antarctica: Art Exhibition opens with a public reception on Friday 27th October from 5.30-7pm at Taylor-Jensen Fine Arts.  The exhibition will continue through Saturday 11th November.  All are welcome.
