Dear Dale: I just saw the Printmaking exhibit.
The work and the stories are beautifull.
The Prints have like a dream inside each of them. To me they remind me of Spiritual themes.
The composition is superb!!!!
I am happy for these artists that are enjoying printmaking , with or without a press.
Saludos and Best Regards
Guadalupe Victorica

OH my gosh Dale,
40 years of accumulated cool stuff!
Brava to you for culling it out. It should feel really good after the onerous task of disposal is finished.
Well done!

I have just spent the hour I put aside to "take care of obligations" watching Dale's masterpieces
and reading her thoughts and explanations of her works..
To hell with the obligations...this was a gift to me.
I can now spend my day reliving what I saw and what she said and being grateful for having Dale in my life.
Jocelyn Pollard, Portland, Maine, USA May 12, 2021

Definitely I have experienced the collaborative energy and connection of Visual artists around the World with Art projects like Dale´s.
Thank you Dale for being so enthusiastic about Art and about charring it with us in these Pandemic times.
I especial love the Complex Parabola series.
May God grant you many years of collaboratios through art.
Guadalupe Victorica, Visual Artist México.

On this sunny first morning of 2021, I decided to start the year with art
appreciation and had a look at Dale’s current Virtual Tart show. It is

always so refreshing, inspiring and simply intriguing to wander from room to room, artist to artist and be surprised at the sheer breadth of -well-
everything: media, subject matter, format, price range, experience. I am set
for the year, what a lovely, colourful and positive exhibition!
I love visiting virtually, though I terribly miss the real life encounters
with the art at the physical Real Tart of old...
All the best for the coming year,
Gunhild Litwin, New Zealand

Your work overwhelms me. It stays in my mind when I walk away.
An artist once said to me "overwhelming does not put food on my table" and I understand that...being in the same world.
But I have run out of walls and flat surfaces and years to collect more.
Fortunately my appreciation is immortal and I appreciate the beauty of your creation.
I am a jeweler and collageist and overall "arty".
I live in Portland, Maine...USA.
I'm glad I looked at Dale's website this morning.

I just loved Christine’s work. Thank you so much for sharing.
The forest is my special sacred place to be as much as possible.
With winter at our doorstep in Chicago, Illinois USA, some days do not allow this luxury.
I hope to see more work by Christine in the Future.
Tania Blanco, collage and mixed media artist. Naperville, Illinois, USA

November 1st, 2019

Christine's collages on the forest theme are outstanding, creative, and heartstopping.
I love the figures that show human relationship with nature.
I am an avid tree hugger and have certain favorite trees at the arboretum that I visit almost every day weather permitting.
Tania Blanco, collage, mixed media artist. Naperville, Illinois, USA.

November 1st, 2019

Feels like i know you, Dale.
Christine's work is pleasant, moving in a, take your time, breath, come back later way.
Especially 'activity at dawn'.
Bruce Smith, artist
Texas, USA

Directed to your site after seeing info about the International Collage Exchange exhibit in Vermont. Well done. =
Elly Graham, artist, California and Vermont, USA

September 4th, 2019

Peggy and Dale, you’re works compliment each other perfectly.
Each with their own distinctive voice and style but together they are even more special and the message even more powerful.
Thank you for sharing your work and imaginations!
Tracy Hambley, USA

Hi, met you and saw your work at Terre Verte. Some very inspirational images.
Think the page is a great idea.
I intend to take part in the 2020 Vision.

Hi Mike here, Dunedin NZ, your 'The exuberance of colour' collage resonated with me as a critique of the 'United Colours of Bennetton'.
Thanks for all your images, many more deserve comment.

October 3rd, 2018

Hi Dale, these are very mind-boggling collage works. An unusual and interesting variety of art pieces.
Dale de Cleene, Auckland and Mark Copeland, Sydney

October 1st, 2018

Your work got to me. Love your sense of humour and FU world yet in love with itand see it.
Laurel Davis, New Zealand

October 1st, 2018

Georgie, your art is sensational, and your wisdom spot on.

What you are sharing more than "rattles my cage." I have CFS as well, and all the trimmings you describe as people
look with puzzlement at this 80 year old odd woman with suspicion and frustration. (Why don't I just go sit and knit
and watch soaps...I'd be a lot more happy. That sort of thing is the subliminal message of some well-wishers.)

Like you, I find much more to life from my perspective now than I did twenty years ago while still trying to fit my life
into the current world culture. Right now I am at a new doorway once again!
Possibilities keep coming to me as gifts, and I look over the brink, and have learned to say..."Why not?!"
And jump!

I call it spending my life instead of trying to save it. That saying has worthy roots, I do believe.
With admiration and good wishes, one of Dale's artist friends,
Susan Holland from Washington State, USA

Having spent four years as a secondary school classmate with 6ft 4in+ Little Bobby, I can see one of his styles has been passing the test of time.
Flights of fancy could dull the pain of most Latin classes!
Little Bobby is very creative in multiple media � as witness his murals, drama set designs, and his recent school of various fish in wood and aluminum cans.
Joseph Witalis, Gatineau, Quebec, Canada

I kept waiting for a collage I didn�t like.....but that never happened. What a great exhibit!

July 1st, 2018

Hello, all you wonderful artists.
I live in New Jersey, far from your talented crowd, but I enjoy seeing the fresh, imaginative and wonderful
art that is being sreated �down under� - in many instances far superior what New York City or its environs can come up with.
I�ve enjoyed your exhibition and congratulate you all.

Just had a look at Connor Smith�s exhibition and I like it a lot. It is refreshing, imaginative and interesting.
Thank you, Dale, for bringing artists from around the world to see each other�s work.
Nothing could be more important in the art world.
Keep on working, Connor�� are on a good path.
Elisabeth Holmes, Mahwah, NJ, USA

March 8th, 2018

Very nice. I am glad I took the time to look at all the art
Little Bobby Duncan, USA

March 1st, 2018

I have just spent the most worthwhile hour of my week visiting the exhibit �WORDS�.
My spirit is refreshed when I realize that there are artists who share my beliefs and who express those beliefs through such clear artistry.
Thanks to all of you for making art that helps us to live our lives.
And thanks always to Dale who brings us all together

December 1st, 2017

Just scrolled through the images of Stu Morris and Myf Morris.
If I lived close, I certainly would visit the expo. Based on what the screen tells: vivid work with depth, playfulness, dreamlike (some dreams have nasty edges).
Do go on.
Drager Meurtant, The Netherlands

June 13th, 2017

Very exciting collection. I love the breadth of the works.
I plan to go back and look for additional work by a number who have shown with you. It is a fantastique group.
Stay healthy and try to ignore our politics.
hugs, Erin=, USA

June 13th, 2017

I was able to go to the exhibition at the 59 Rivoli in Paris. I am the student in Art History and Anthropology who wants to specialise in New Zealand's contemporary art and I wanted to let you know, again, how interesting and mesmerizing this exhibition was. The pieces presented was so interesting and so eclectic ( subject as technique), and I appreciated that you tell me more about your own creation.
I registered myself on the newsletters and I enjoy receiving news and discovering new artists ( the website is very rich, it's fantastic)
Can i ask, if any other exhibition is plan in Europe soon ? I intend to come in New Zealand but it's not for today yet.
With all good wishes,
Bests regards
Sigourney Verrier, France

Elissa Gordon, USA

March 1st, 2016

dearest Dale,
Congratulations on a most exciting combination of assemblage talents.

You know how much I adore your work. But yours is so very well paired with Robbii who is a tad more flamboyant and Victorian in his concepts while Seth Apter is inching more into your territory except for his painted backgrounds.
I love all the approaches and admire them greatly. Having known you all these past years I am thrilled to be part of this world of the arts and enjoy your exhibition so very much.

And congratulations on going back to Paris! That is super news, Dale.

(and Hell's Kitchen is always waiting for you!)

Hugs from Max who is smiling at you.
Elisabeth Holmes, Mahwah, NJ

Hello Paul,
This is a profound and deeply felt compliment for your prolific paintings of bottles and
glassware. You really have a magic touch with this genre, as you do with portraits
and matches, clothes pins and other obscure subjects.
Just wanted to let you know that I thoroughly enjoyed looking at each one of them.
Most sincerely, Elisabeth Holmes, USA

August 1st, 2015

Paul's daffodil in blue bottle is very beautiful. Good job. Hopefully, spring will come soon for you.

Paul, what a truly stunning body of work, the honesty palpable the application heartfelt and the images emotive and revealing.
Marcus., New Zealand

July 1st, 2014

Paul, your exhibition of self portraits is amazing. I've never seen such original poses and so well executed. For instance, reflection in a round mirror is unique and so very original, as is the skinny mirror.
I can definitely detect the progression as an artist you has gone through and come out at the end so successfully.
Thank you for sharing this wonderful body of work. Congratulations!
Elisabeth Holmes, USA

November 4, 2010

Wow! Wow!Wow, Leila!! What amazing work/play! It's too long since I have seen your work, the last I remember seeing was what you had painted in Papua New Guinea and I thought they were pretty amazing. This is such a quantum leap and very different from your style then of course, but Leila, who are you trying to kid? Apprentice angel??? Your halo has very appropriately shrunk!! Very impressive - I love it all!! I would love to buy one, maybe Heirloom Vase if it hasn't already gone? My next favourites are Lot's Wife and Aratiatia Rapids. Please let me know if you still have any of these and prices. They have probably long gone! I will check this website from time to time. When is your next exhibition?

To Whom it may Concern:
Hello, and greetings from Los Angeles, Ca. A while back I was working with Mr. Tim Chadwick to sell a piece he had done titled:
"Mazda RX7, RX3, RX2, 787B, R100 coupe, Cosmos artwork ltd edition print"
I just found out today (June 17) via your website that Tim passed away. To all there who knew him, please accept my deepest condolences. He was always a very nice fellow in our communications.
I was wondering if some of his automotive artwork was still available... or who I may contact to get this information. If someone could please get back to me, I'd truly appreciate it. Thank you!
Kind Regards, -Berny H., USA
(It's specifically Tim's print of 11 Mazda cars that Berny is keen to help distribute, if anyone needs the help.
Let me know if you want to contact Berny. dale)

just been looking through the exhibition. very enjoyable! and now i have had some contact with individual artists through the year, and from last years exhibition, its great to see new styles and developments in their work.
i was especially interested to see others using old books and altered book techniques in their work, and have just emailed Heather Bramwell to compliment her on her work.
thank you again Dale ! for all your work to put this annual collage event together!

John �
I love your work. I have a fascination with antique portraits, so I know what it�s like to want to capture something�s/someone�s past or wonder why it�s been discarded. My thanks to you for your contribution to the community of fine artists here in the states and abroad.

JOHN TRAINOR, Your tasteful sensibilities are evidenced here in your masterful assemblages. These quiet introspective reflections illuminate the transitory nature of being. Bravo

Hello John,
Your collages are very sensitive and nostalgically powerful. They act as magnets drawing my eyes in. I would love to see them in person and experience them texturally. I sense nature as a strong element. Keep up the good work!
Thanks, Dale, for posting these so all can see and enjoy!

Your work is beautiful and I always knew it would be recognized for its beauty and imagination.
Please remember us little people when you become a world famous artiste!!!!
Love you much! Sandy Faria, Portsmouth, Rhode Island

December 1, 2009

wonderful work, john trainor! i enjoyed every single piece, and will be returning to have more looks. each of your works has a very nice combination of delicacy and strength. your statement says that you work from your subconscious, and i find that uplifting since i do the same whereas many artists state specific purposes. i think it all has meaning, but in working from the subconscious you are discovering the meaning along the way, yes? it makes the process an exploration, which is exciting.

Hi there:
Just wondering if you could send me a list of your artists so that I could find out if they would be interested in sending their art to the US for an art gallery showing. I am a native NZer and have lived in the US for 25 years and my friend is interested in having a showing of NZ art for her gallery.
Thank you. Lois Fischer

I thoroughly enjoy viewing AMarie's virtual show - Postcards from the Edge - I See Dead People.
Her talent and use of materials is luscious and insipring!
Thank you for the visual treat!!
Also, Paul Hutchinson's virtual show was beyond words for be able to so precisely and beautifully express himself with such a high level of talent while at the same time showing his wonderful sense of humor is just WONDERFUL!
His pictorial rendition of everyday items is awe inspiring.
Thanks, Dale, for sharing this all with us!

Just wanted to say "Congratulations" to Paul for your recent win.
I saw the artwork on the site and they are wonderful.
Hope all is well at Puniho Road - it�s been a long time since Dale gave me a sparkly green sequined clip on earring I found in her workshop when I was about 7 years old! I�ve probably still got it somewhere at Mum�s as it was a truly prized possession ... one mans junk...

Hi Dale: I love your art!
Like you, I've worked for 30 odd years & am slowly stepping into the world of art making. For me it's like exploring Mars. Everything is strange and new. My first attempt at art was to make an assemblage. This art form is what comes most naturally for me, although I am now experimenting with collage, acrylics & mixed media. Your assemblages are wonderful and I will check your excellent website often. You sound fulfilled, happy, and content. What more can a woman ask for?
I hope you earned the money to go to Berlin and that you had/are having a wonderful trip.
Thanks for giving. Elizabeth, RogueART

September 10, 2006

To Dale Copeland - how fortuitous that I've found you! A fan of yours found me on MySpace because of my shadowboxes and told me that I should check out your website and I have a deep appreciation for what you create.
I am elated to find out that you are also in the International Assemblage Artist Exhibition!
I really do hope to meet you in Berlin!
I'm crossing my fingers for you for your brilliant Make an Offer campaign... wish I could help you out but I'm strapped for cash getting to Berlin myself! Looking forward to meeting you - take care.

August 24, 2006

Enjoyed your site.
I was actually looking for the work of John McLean, as in 1977 I bought his "Broken Karaka."
He was a friend of our friends who lived in NP. They took us to John's studio and he was painting "Broken Karaka." I fell for the painting and we bought it when it was finished. I saw his "Man and Wife Adrift" on your site and would be interested in seeing more of his work.
We moved to Australia in 1978 and we've taken BK from Melbourne to the Sunshine Coast in recent years. We still love it and it is always admired by visitors. His work is joined by that of Val Ross, an expatriate Kiwi, who paints on the Coast, often NZ scenes when she visits Maraki most years..
Please give John our best wishes.

The Vanitas exhibit is exceptional. All four artists are to be commended.
I keep changing my mind about my favorite piece.
I love to try to interpret what artists are thinking .
My own work makes sense to me but not to everyone else.
I guess I tend to love artwork that makes me really think about what's in front of me, whether or not I completely comprehend.
Your work is wonderful. Thank You!

Nearly fifteen years ago I lived in this region, even wrote environmental articles for the local New Plymouth paper I was amazed and so lucky to discover how many creative talents I met and came to appreciate while living there. One day I will bring my children to visit. The art here is representive of this heartwarming region and I was delighted to stumble onto this websight and be inspired by it. Thank you.

Thank you for your beautiful collages. I am very impressed. I worked with political posters from Medellin, Colombia in 1991. Your work is very rich. I love the formalistic qualities. I am a great fan of dada and assemblage.

It's been rewarding to look through your exhibition and individual artists works.
Entry forms for the Peters Doig Marlborough Art Awards 2005 are on their way to many of the artists and we hope we might see some of their work amongst those chosen for the exhibition in May.
Best wishes,
Jennifer Jones-Godden, Exhibitions Director, Marlborough Gallery, Blenheim.
