Jason Kelly - Second Helpings

Iconic New Zealand Artist, Jason Kelly brings Second Helpings to the Taupo Museum’s Niven Room over the summer holidays.

Second Helpings features Kelly's series of 18 Kiwiana grub-inspired paintings on reclaimed wood, commissioned by NZ Post for the "Kiwi Kitchen" Collectors Stamps in 2015.

Kelly first gained widespread attention with his successful print series Sweet As Summer Series 2009 in his trademark quirky hand brushed style.

"I'm happy to be able to exhibit my unique humorous quirk in a Second Helpings serving of my NZ Post Stamp Series, Kiwi Kitchen," Jason says.

“It's great to be able to exhibit the original collection in the Taupō Museum, a former post office. Taupō is also the backdrop image of New Zealand's rarest stamp. I'm also excited to be exhibiting some new works with a Taupo flavor”

Kelly's work will be on display till 7 February 2022. Watch the museum Facebook page for possible workshop events and talks (Covid level dependent)

Taupō Museum is open 7 days* from 10am to 4:30pm and entry is free to Taupō District residents with proof of address.
