How is life in that green and golden paradise. Oh it does me well to hold these idillic images of my home in this cluttered urban mind .

August 27, 1999

Margret, New Zealand
Dale Copeland - is your work "Eli, Eli" a name attributed to Eli Adlam? Haven't seen your assemblage work before. Imaginative, exciting.

August 22, 1999

Melanie, New Zealand
i was just looking at the showcase area and the pictures are amaizing.
i thought Peter Lamberts "6 views from Studio at Daybreak" and Marianne Muggeridges "Taranaki" were awesome...everyone who contributed work, Well Done!

August 21, 1999

Marion WELLINGTON, New Zealand
Keep up the great work - wonderful to be able to "see" local art from my computer. A great use of modern technology - Looking forward to the next exhibition.

Good Works!
I intrroduce our "Web Simulation Exhibition" to you because I think that you have much interests in Korean art.
Millennium Identity 'Front 2000' Exhibition (
This exhibition will show the real aspect of Korean Contemporary Art and give a special experience of Oriental beauty to you. I hope many inspections.
After your viewing, please leave a message in GUESTBOOK. Your valuable message will give a help to our artists in creating new works.

Hello, I just visited your web site.
Its very good and very interesting.
Keep up the good work!
All the best from James Sandbrook.

Jerry Leyendecker, USA
To Alby:
Saw your work on TART and really like it. It is the kind of representative/abstract painting that I really like because it bridges them both (like a good Cezanne). Tell me, what are your prices. The TART site does not give that information. JL

August 2, 1999

derek treeby, New Zealand
My vists to the Govett have been disapointing of late
Maybe I am out of order but I would be more satisfied if more works such as the group of artist I have seen on these pages.
I understand that overseas work should be available but so far what I have seen has done nothing for me
I do not understand all of the art shown but at least I have an emotional exprience of love or hate.
I must confess the pages shown here -the emotion is love.

August 1, 1999

Janet Keen, New Zealand
thanku so much for the virtual tart posting i love the work by Alby Carter....and am sending the url to some of my friends...well worth a look .

August 1, 1999

little bobby duncan, USA
I think that Alby Carter's images are really delicious! The color ,the movement are really wonderful. Having lived a while in northern California, I understand how beautiful nature all-around can impact one's work [I had many giant redwoods appear in my work while there, and still]. Your paintings make me want to walk those roads. Thank you.
Also, I enjoyed the students' show, but my damnslow computer took forever to download those images.

Stephen Dee
Cathy Dee is obviously a genius and shoud be given a Doctorate and a tenured full-time lectureship without further delay.
I am completely unbiased about this.

Vince Philpott, Australia
I recently chanced upon your work thru the net and have been absolutely enchanted by your work.Are your works available here in Melbourne ?

July 18, 1999

chris baker, New Zealand
Lyrical, evocative, moving - or is it an enormous pile of decomposing organic matter? I wouldn't know, but I liked the pictures anyway. Cheers...

July 16, 1999

George Clooney

Hi Dale was on the computer doing an assignment, thought I'd have a break and contact you. Hope the holidays are going well. Feeling frazzled from Tcoll but only another 14 weeks to go, Nelson is lovely aprt from work. Am missing doing my art but will get back into it at the end of the year. Let me know what you are up to with life and virtual tart

Sorry, I forgot to mention in my previous comment that the infamous "Beyond WeetBix" Exhibition is featured in the Ars Nova 2000 Gallery at:
Take a look from a different perspective...from the other side of the planet, all you would be "cereal killers".
And to all the real ones, best of luck and success.

July 5, 1999

Great work by Barbara Berge.

Tino pai to mahi Reece - your site just blew us away - if only we had known about this site before our holiday in Taranki recently we would have visited you - next time for sure!

Taranaki Polytechnics:
Your works are splendid! They are boundless in their energy and enthusiasm. As you develop your many and prodigious talents, please remember who provided the cereal for all of you "cereal killers". And remember also to provide cereal for all of your own future "cereal killers"! Best wishes for a total success...which you have already achieved.

Very imaginative eye catching work.
You have talent!

It is pretty well put together.

June 30, 1999

Sam Cresswell

June 30, 1999

Steve Smith, New Zealand
Very interesting... though, (currently) missing one awesome artist's work!
Please visit to feast your eyes on the talents of Taranaki's Paula Novak.
Thank you.

June 26, 1999

Brett Albertsen, Australia
Margaret, I have just visited your exhibition and it was just stupendous. The composition is dramatic in its lineal qualities and you are obviously a natural born colourist. I love the symbolism and basically I just love Treasures of our Coast.

June 25, 1999

Jay Leary, USA
im from Florida, USA i love the paintings that you have built.
The Supper With The Mary's was especially interesting as to color.
May ye be blessed,

tracey wakefield
Interesting but there should be more to see

June 14, 1999

I'm from Arkansas and just received this on New Zealand from a new friend from there. I just wanted to say I think this is great!!!!

glenys duncan, New Zealand
MARIANNE, I really loved the painting of Lucy. After speaking to you last week, I went out to Hath's in Paekak, and who should be at his place but Phil and Lisa. Was really funny, NICE EVENING. I'm at Erin's sending this, came round to see virtual tart. Great. Will ring you soon ie, later in the week.

June 2, 1999

Jean wood, New Zealand
beautifully laid out,fast furious,fun to see,slow and languid sit back and enjoy. This site has it all! Looking forward to more!

June 2, 1999

Christine Sherman, USA
I loved Roger Morris' work, especially the Small blue tin series, and Marianne Muggeridge's landscapes are stunning.
I don't usally rave about the art I see around, and I visit NY galleries pretty often, but I find the work you show very inspiring, and humbling too!

June 2, 1999

Sharon Arlidge, New Zealand
What a wonderful place your site is. Even though I live in Opunake and have known about your site for some time, this has been my first visit.
Thank you and well done. Your talents are awesome.

June 1, 1999

little bobby duncan, USA
Just saw your show on virtual tart. It's truly remarkable to sit here in New Jersey and see such beautiful work from New Zealand. If I didn't plan on doing my own art, I might spend the whole day looking at everyone else's around the world!Thanks for sharing.

June 1, 1999

Catherine Yakovina, Russia
I am in delight from "Barking the Dog - Tales for the New Dominion" by Roger Morris, and "Work from the Middle Age" - recent work by Marianne Muggeridge.
Wondeful, talented, unusual exhibition.
Thanks a lot to Roger and Marianne!

June 1, 1999

glenn cole, USA
Just excellent art - I look forward to the next showing of the work of various artists.
Thanks so much -

May 26, 1999

Patrick Medlicott, New Zealand
Thank you,I have a number of your works already,great to know what is available

May 24, 1999

Marilyn Park, New Zealand
As a museum/art gallery registrar/ curator/ potter, currently based in Nelson, I was happy to find a cultural/art site giving local New Zealand creations. Interesting and innovative. Loved the costumes! I gather from other comments that you update it regularly. I'll definitely look again.
Good work!

May 22, 1999

Henare, New Zealand
Tena koe Reece, Tino pai taku titiro ki o mahi ataahua! Toi Whakairo! Toi! Te Mana! Mihi hoki ki a Tania.

Stephen Ross, UK
I really love the paintings of yours I saw at this website.
I'm from Manaia and have been here in London fornearly nine months.
I'd really love to have a print of your painting of Mount Taranaki,
it's breathtakingly beautiful. How can I get one over here?
I'd really like to know.
Thanks, and keep up the brilliant work,

May 18, 1999

Waldo Hartley and Peter Lambert have something that brought their work alive for me. I still feel like I'm in their paintings. I love that.

Anna Peat, New Zealand
I explained the picture in Backstage cafe to Mum. She has no imagination.
Very colourful and strange.
I like going to see what your "new" picture looks like.

Jason Fleming, New Zealand
It is wonderful to see Taranaki getting exposure, We are all too often reminded of other parts of NZ's beauty, but in reality "Taradise" is the real jewel.

May 9, 1999

Atanner West
taranaki artists certainly deserve the exposure.

May 6, 1999

IaIn DoUgLaS, UK
I read something in one of our papers about art ( specifically post modern ) being a means of generating words.
I suppose thats why i'm always expected to contextualize and explain.
Once again i'm happy to have had a visit,are things spiralling out of control?
See you soon from exactly opposite the world.

May 5, 1999

Lee August, New Zealand
Wonderful website was particularly taken with 'Sorrow' by Reece Rongonui, It's great to see NZ Art displayed in a format that so many can enjoy, without leaving your PC...
Well done !!!, Kia ora

Kia ora
A terrific site - great idea, very well presented.
Have forwarded it to others at CNZ for a look.
Especially enjoyed Caroline's 'show' as it's the first opportunity I've had to 'see' the work we've had talks about.
Once again - thank you to all concerned.
Thank you!

The real "hidden" reason about Ronald H was he was QUEER....GAY...A POOF... so the labels ...... and "value" was as we know .... ....

I have just recently done something that I have wanted to do for some time.. get into B&W photography. I have been told I have an eye for it.. and I enjoy it..anway, as an expat Kiwi living in Florida, I was surfing the net looking at photography sights and came across yours... I enjoyed it and wanted to drop you a line.

April 28, 1999

Matthew Jordan., New Zealand

Ray Stoddart is showing us how to do some printing.
He is going to bring one of my prints to give you

Hi there TARTS,
so there is intelligent life on the internet after all!
Great web site, and the images didnt take toooo long to download - I enjoyed the show and will be back again regularly now that my computer has figured out how to find you.

I've been o'seas a few years now , but when did RHM's house get turfed? And can you point me to any news stories on the hows & whys. To be turned into a KFC is insulting, to say the least. Whatever people may have thoght of him, he wrote with a genuine kiwi voice, and I would put him up with Ray Bradbury as a good writer of small town life.

April 19, 1999

Valora, Australia
I'm a Kiwi born artist living in Central Queensland.
What a great site!
Compliments to the Artists especially Karen Hamer.

April 10, 1999

Alan Clark, New Zealand
Hi guys.
Great stuff from Taranaki.
I wrote to the Mayoress before the demolition reminding her of where she stood before her election, but alas, it fell on deaf ears and once again Sahawera the cultural desert of New Zealand destroyed another part of its heritage...

April 9, 1999

Tony Kuppen
Just browsing
I as an artist myself has been living in Waitara for eight years and I saw the names of familiair artist like for instance Dale Copeland - she once bought an artwork of me that was in the review.
I wish you all well and keep up the good work.
Regards Tony Kuppen

Hi Karen,
remember me? Ellie and I sat for your art group a couple of years ago :)
Your paintings show flair and imagination, the site is encouraging.
Keep up the great work.

April 5, 1999

Mike O'Kane, New Zealand
From Ronald Morrieson's Window made me come over all nostalgic... and I've never been there particularly.

April 3, 1999

Celia Burney, United Arab Emirate
Your art reminded me of the years I spent as a youth in Opunake.
Still love the mountain.
Refreshing to see the greenness of the pastures in direct contrast to the desert here in the Middle East.
Keep up your splendid work.

April 3, 1999

little bobby duncan, USA
I really love the current show, and felt like I stood there and felt that. By the way, what is the tower?

April 1, 1999

John Foster, New Zealand
Great show, well done.

April 1, 1999

anne e harris, USA
What a moving tribute to Ronald! All of this, with Roger's writings, would make a fabulous book.

April 1, 1999

glenn cole, USA
Great site - I wish all art on the web had the size of each piece - for it would make it so clear to the viewer the magnitude of the piece - I enjoyed the site greatly - thanks

Fanie Schoeman, New Zealand
Overwhelmed to say the least of it.
To have so much talent concentrated in such a small part of the country - must be something in the soil !!!!

March 18, 1999

Peter.H Hamer, Holland
Hello Karen,
Nice pictures, could we be in someway related?
Please let me know.
Thank you, Peter

March 13, 1999

Diana Morris, New Zealand
I love your site. What a great way to show off local talent.

March 8, 1999

I think that Mavis Gibson's work is colourful, vibrant and lifelike.
I will be looking forward to seeing more of her work in future virtual tart showcases.
