It would be great to do a tour of Taranaki looking at these artists work if they are not on exhibition.

February 24, 2002

jo massey, NZ
Marge Bechelli - great! What a mix! Visually satisfying ("Every cloud...." and "Sticks and Stones") to intersting and quite thought-provoking ("Frustration" and "Release").
Good oh - I'll come back and contemplate further .

Steve Butler, Wellington
BUGGER!!!!!! Just when you guys finally get over the ditch I am back in NZ. I would have loved to have cought up with you all and shown you some of the sights of Victoria.
I am now living in Wellington and working for Industry New Zealand. I am living in the city but now working on getting some studio space from where I can start painting again.
Next time I get back up to NP I would love to come out for a catch up though.
Take care and good luck with Lorne.

John McLean ,Paul Hutchinson, Dale Copeland and Jo Massey.
Best Wishes and Congratulations on jumping the "Ditch" I would have loved to have come down to see what yous' have been up to. However, I live on the Tropic of Capricorn and 2500km is along way to go even for great art!
However I have informed other artists I am in contact with in Victoria to try and get to Lorne or go online to take a jack at your works.

Tania Todd, Tataraimaka,Taranaki.
I've enjoyed viewing your site.I chanced to see the two day exhibition held in an empty shop space held in NP earlier this year and was impressed with an exhibition showcaseing such a variety and number of our local artists.I was also fortunate to see an exhibition of three of your artists at the Plymouth Hotel recently, Mary Donald being one of the exhibiters, I loved her works using the pine needles.Thank you all for the visual feast.

Another beautiful show. I have to visit NZ because the color in all the landscapes I've seen here is exceptional. Also loved the hearts. Big, warm, vivid.Thank you for bringing new art into my life every month.

Abdul-Rahiim, USA
The collage in the " Birds of a Feather " exposition, with a small red bird next to a violiin. The first thing that came to mind was a classical music composition by Antonio Vivaldi entitled " The Four Seasons". The first movement of the Spring Concerto featured the violin portraying the sound of a sparrow during spring time. These two images are what brought these two to my imagination. If you happen to know this piece, I think that you would be able to envision the same.

Darcy O'Brien, New Zealand
Lovely work, it's good to see New Zealand art.

judy finer, usa
This is my show. We're testing the guestbook. But I also want to say how very much I appreciate the replies I have gotten about my work. To insure receipt, you probably should email them directly to me - as there is some glitch with some transmissions to the guestbook. Or directly to Dale
So if you have written and not had a reply from me, do try writing me directly.
For all of you who have looked at my work, THANK YOU.

I have been admiring the work of Joyce Young for many years while 'doing the Rhodo' festival'. This year 2001 I discovered your website, thanks to Joyce. It's wonderful, thank you.

November 13, 2001

Shirley in New Jersey, USA
Eureka! I was able to access your show and see your beautiful, intriguing work.
I (we) loved it! Really liked Signs of the Times, liked even more Figures of Speech, and loved Birds of a Feather. Tried to pick a favorite and couldn't. Did you really get all the stamp makings at a garage sale? Serendipitous, to say the least. Anyway, great fun , congratulations, we'll look forward to the next one.

November 9, 2001

Jeff, New York

I enjoyed your show very much.
I was reminded of Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity by the "1905" which appears in "Reverse 3" in "Signs of the Times." Einstein published this paper in 1905. That year he published 3 very important papers, including the one on the Photoelectric Effect, for which he won the Nobel. But the most important one was Special Relativity. It gives us a more complete understanding of the relationship between space and time.
The postmarks, which appear on all except "So-Nant" in the "Birds of a Feather" Series and on all 6 in the "Signs of the Times" series are a symbol which generally indicates both space (i.e. the address) and time.
Did you do this consciously, unconsciously, or not at all (i.e. am I over-interpreting?)?
Another thing which struck me is in "Figures of Speech". One is entitled "Blue Code." The medical code-name often used over hospital PA systems to announce a cardiac arrest is "Code Blue." Furthermore, Blue Code is, of all cards, the Queen of Hearts! And "Match 3" in "Sign of the Times" has a postmark which says "Lexington." This is the name of one of the streets on which Lenox HIll Hospital borders.
Finally, there are numbers all over the place. It's very refreshing to see this because art people are not usually numbers people. There are numbers on every piece in "Birds of a Feather." In "Signs of the Times", I see numbers on each piece, except "Mural", which may have a part of a '3'. In the "Figures of Speech" series, I found numbers on every one except the Queen of Hearts... until I looked some more and noticed a '65' in the background. The Queen of Clubs has 14 digits on it!
Thanks for showing it to me. Please keep me informed about any future >exhibitions.

Sorry that I didn't write after the last show (exquisite) but Art calls (he usually calls about 11:30 pm). I really loved the Birds of a feather, so delicate and colorful. I hope all is well, I'm now looking for a place at the beach! Sunny Beaches!

Barb Widmer, U.S.A.
Ran across this sight by accident while looking for information on orphaned birds and it seemed appropriate that I stumbled across Lynn Morresey's work.
I love his paintings and offbeat sense of humor.
Sure brightened my day - thanks.

I particularly enjoyed coastline, where my sense of what was solid and what was liquid is able to alternate between land and water.
Also enjoyed little chair, just because.
Nice work

Wiebke, Manchester, UK

Dear Dale and Dear Peggy,
Looked at the site of your joint exhibition for the first time today. I had a VERY HAPPY hour with them. I hope that everybody else who comes to see them will enjoy them as much as I did.
I especially liked "The Bishop Will Not Be Receiving" (Is that really cast-iron in the foreground?) and "The Midas Touch" (All those creepy charred bits were great!) The pieces are lovely and poignant and a lot of fun. And I very much like the explanations you give with them. So thanks for a brilliant site.
Yours Wiebke

Denise Enslen, USA

Thanks again Dale for sending me yet another exciting exhibition.

October 1, 2001

Cheryl Duncan, USA
Great show! I've enjoyed visiting the Virtual Tart website for at least a year. This show though motivated me to respond. Really nice work! Big Game tickled me...the fact that you and Peggy were simultaneously working on a piece with the same name and I happened upon a kids monopoly board a couple weeks ago and of course I just had to bring it home...was thinking about making a book. Thanks for the inspiration to get on it!

October 1, 2001

judy Finer, USA
Dear Dale and Peggy -
Your show is FABULOUS!
I anticipated it would be good, knowing your work, Dale, and having seen a couple of your pieces online, Peggy. But the show itself - the pieces individually, the sense of dialogue - accidental, synchronistic visual dialogue - the body of work each of you presents, far exceeds my anticipation.
It is truly a delight to see, and see again.
Thank you both.
All success with the show.
Kind regards

glenn cole, Bakersfield, California, USA Ms. Dale
Since most of us in the U.S. will never have the thrill of seeing your country, I wonder if one of your fine artists down there would take a few photographs of various spots of the landscape so we can vicariously visit you in that way?
Thank you for your lovely site and God Bless
