I opened my studio, my home and my heart on Valentine’s weekend 2021 to launch my tiny gallery—Art@Rangitane—and look who called in. The fabulous, talented and fun Jo Seagar.

“Wonderful exhibition Cassandra Gaisford ….thrilled with our purchases and looking forward to many more …what an inspiring place to have a studio.” ~ Jo Seagar

I love, love, love meeting people who have come from all corners of the world to see my art and soak up the beautiful sea views and the natural environment which inspires my art.

Some of my own most memorable experiences have been purchasing art directly from artists whose philosophy and feel-good vibe I have enjoyed. Artists like Max Gimblett who I was also fortunate to study with during a workshop he held in Hawaii. It’s so cool meeting and purchasing art from the artist in person and I love that others feel that way

Showing more of myself in life and art and sharing heaven on earth with tourists, locals and art lovers is an exciting new venture.

As a true champion of the positive power of art, and with a mission to attract people to the area and support local artists, I’m excited about the potential of this new initiative.

In the near future, I plan to showcase the finest Northland artists, silversmiths, sculptors and others.

I hope to see you soon. Call in to visit, purchase art, or commission a piece direct from me (or online), or just say “gidday”. You’ll make my day.
