Fascinating work from visiting French sculptor Vincent Gontier

A very special exhibition for a very short time only, this selection of small "sketches"  are made of compressed newspaper and steel.  Gontier is in New Zealand on an exchange project sponsored by the village of La Tour du Pin, in which he visits New Zealand, and AVID artist Johnny Turner then visits France .  See our website for more images.

While Vincent was at AVID he took this picture of the Saturday team (from left: Anna, Sharon and Dorothy.)
