About 30 works by an informal collaboration of eight Central Otago artists have gone on display at Eade Gallery in Clyde.

The exhibition, entitled “indigo@eade”, runs until January 26 and represents a range of work as diverse as the artists who created them.

Clyde artist Nigel Wilson said the Indigo group came together as a loose collaboration to mount exhibitions across New Zealand.

“Basically, what we do is seek out exhibitions throughout the country and create our own shows.”

That meant in the past two years Indigo had exhibited at the Orion Powerhouse Gallery in Akaroa and the Forester Gallery in Oamaru and had a show booked for next year at the Ashburton Art Gallery, he said.

Along with Wilson Indigo members are Luke Anthony, Shaun Burdon, Judy Cockeram, Rachel Hirabayashi, Megan Huffadine, Jillian Porteous and Lynne Wilson.

Their work covers a wide range of media: ceramics, painting, sculpture, photography and mixed media.

Indigo meets regularly to discuss new projects and all members bring a range of skills to the group, including exhibition curation, graphic design, writing, public speaking and teaching.

The “indigo@eade” exhibition runs until January 26.
