Colin Wheeler at the Opera House

Colin Wheeler has been painting for more than six decades and much of his work features North Otago landscapes and buildings.

He is a prolific and generous artist and has donated a large number of his paintings to the town’s Forrester Gallery .

Twelve of his paintings now grace the foyer of the newly re-opened Opera House, a gift from former Oamaru resident Eleanor Sweeney.

My photography doesn’t do them justice:
