Since it’s debut, Kaan Zamaan’s founder and director Julia Reinholt has held monthly exhibitions supporting Northland, national and international artists. Established in 2001, it all started on Kemp Road, in Julia’s home studio. Since then it outgrew it’s premises three times, but now, 16 years on, it’s time to downsize again.
The recent arrival of Julia’s grandson was the catalyst for a change of direction. The established artists she represents will continue to exhibit but in a smaller more intimate space. Julia has recently renovated her naturally lit small studio, making it an ideal little venue for a new beginning.
j u l i a r e i n h o l t contemporary art | consultant is now open.
People can visit anytime Julia is home, she’s open on demand or by appointment. It promises to be a whole new experience with not only the art on display to paruse, but also Julia’s home, the stockroom and her private art collection of artifacts, from her travels overseas. ” Julia’s home is a museum” says artist Minhal al Halabi ” with a stunning view to boot !”
Julia hopes an individual and uninterrupted reception, in the peace of her home overlooking the river and away from the bustle of town, will offer a pleasing and unique gallery experience. With nearly 17 years in the industry, Julia hopes to help customers find what they need in a relaxed atmosphere offering a specialised and personal service, in a beautiful historic location overlooking Kerikeri basin and Kororipo pa. Children are welcome , with a play area in the garden to entice them in, what better way to be introduced to the gallery world .
Julia will give advise on who to see for restoration and conservation work, where to get quality museum standard framing referring you to top specialists in these fields.
Workshops , artists talks and other events will also be held on site, watch this space as things evolve.
The exhibition space can be hired on a discretionary basis from time to time.
