It’s not your typical art space, but five local artists are showing their works at the Moore Street Medical Centre.

The otherwise plain walls of the medical’s centre’s waiting area are displaying art by Joy Stack, Ngaio McKee, Lynda Scott, Barbara Jaine and Robin Arnst.

Each artist has contributed three or four works each and there is a variety of mediums and various subjects to catch the eye of visitors.

Joy Stack’s signature colourful works feature in one corner, while on the opposite wall there is more colour and a focus on circles from Robin Arnst.

Lynda Scott’s works are watercolours and feature local landscapes.

Barbara Jaine has oil, watercolour and mixed media works that feature landscapes and florals, including three miniatures, and Ngaio McKee has focused on landscapes in watercolour.

Robin Arnst said the medical centre was not your typical art space, but the works displayed would give the public something to look at and consider.

There was little reading material in public places at the moment, so the art would catch the eye.

All the works were priced and for sale and would hang for a month and maybe longer, she said.

Lynda Scott said the artists all regularly displayed at shows and exhibitions at the Short Street studio.

All were members of the Ashburton Society of Arts and enjoyed painting and creativity.
