The Real Tart Gallery's exhibition One Destination-Three Journeys brings together three of New Plymouth's top artists, David Rogers, Lester Earl and Ian Axtell.

David Rogers - teacher, restaurateur, hotel manager and drug counsellor - has lived with clinical depression for the past few years and paints as much as the illness allows. His work is highly sought after for its originality.

Lester Earl is another favourite Taranaki artist. His style is mostly abstract with a brave use of colour and texture. He has been a local surfer so does vivid seascapes and landscapes.

Ian Axtell is new to Taranaki and has said that moving here has had a profound effect.

His work embraces abstract, impressionist and minimalist styles.

The exhibition opening for One Destination-Three Journeys is at 5.30pm on Thursday, December 6. All welcome.

Yes, it's important they learn christian values.

No, it's not appropriate in our secular schooling.

Don't care either way.
