About the Event

A  special event is being held at the Charlotte Museum from 2pm - 4pm with refreshments, to celebrate the exhibit and to offer available works at a  reduced price before they are listed for auction online.

The  exhibition is on now until Wednesday July 7, 2021 and the exhibition is  a fund raiser for the Charlotte Museum. Artist Veronica Slater,  currently living in Brighton, is donating all proceeds in support of the  Charlotte Museum.

SafeKeeping  includes two bodies of work by Veronica, a retrospective of Debatable  Territories from the Hero Festival, 2002 and the world premiere of  Nebulous. Nebulous  is a series of artwork done in 2002 when Veronica was living in  Auckland, and nothing made sense to her after witnessing 9/11 in New  York.

“Such a tragic turning point in history and looking back, I  think the work was about being in a state of flux, not knowing where to  go, in a kind of limbo. I sought refuge in the materiality and  alchemy of paint. Its fluidity and unpredictable nature when poured,  seemed to resonate with a world in chaos." Veronica Slater, 2021.

The  concept of nebulous, that hazy, confused feeling, where things do not  quite make sense is reflective of the ambiguity faced by many women in  Aotearoa post Covid-19 where, while already earning less than men, women  are being disproportionately affected by issues such as job loss and  homelessness.
