Graham will be opening his studio to the public over the weekend of the 15th and 16th of October as part of the Art Trail Manawatu. Either pick up a map from Square Edge Community Arts and join the Art Trail or just drop in and visit Graham in his studio which will be open 10am – 4pm daily. 

Graham is a proud supporter of the Manawatu Rural Support Service and often donates paintings with the purchase price going to MRSS to assist them in continuing to provide a free, home-based information support service for rural families and communities.

MRSS provides support during times of sickness, bereavement, unemployment, relationship breakdown, parenting issues or financial difficulty – helping to resolve loneliness, isolation and personal difficulties.

Graham has generously offered to donate the entire proceeds from the sale of the painting ‘Solo’ to the Manawatu Rural Support Service. Solo can be viewed by appointment or at Graham’s studio which will be open for the Art Trail Manawatu over the weekend of the 15th and 16th of October.
