Barry Saunders Inspired Art Exhibition

The Music and Art Project was born when Gallery Curator Ron Epskamp met Country music stalwart Barry Saunders. Baz was looking for cover art for a greatest hits release, Ron suggested portrait painter Stephen Marty Welch, and the idea grew legs, culminating in an exhibition of 14 artworks inspired by Barry's lyrics. Kirsten Johnstone went along to the opening at Exhibitions Gallery in Wellington.
