If you visit Mint Gallery at 32 Moray Place, you will be enthralled by an underwater world of strange creatures and vibrant colour, a fusion of art and science! Not surprisingly, the exhibition is named after the Greek goddess of the sea who gave birth to a host of sea monsters. As a winner of an Australasian ‘Our World-Underwater’ Scholarship in 2011, Anthea was fortunate to find herself exploring some of the most sought after diving spots in the world. Her stunning photographs capture marine life from Papua New Guinea to our own Otago Peninsula. She wasn’t afraid to get up close and personal with even the most intimidating sea creatures such as the Great White Shark! The vibe at the opening night (held Thursday 28 March) was lively and welcoming as family, friends, fellow photographers and artists came to show their support. Admiring clown fish over a glass of Stables Merlot was the perfect way to spend an evening! The exhibition will be open until 18 April.
