Tramping Gently Club Art Collective

The Tramping Gently Club Art Collective was formed in April 2021 and consists of three female artists; Cheryl Gallaway (UK), Ellen Rodda (NZ) and Siv Fjærestad (Norway) working together in Paetūmōkai, Featherston, Aotearoa New Zealand. Our collective art practice peels open layers of the female voice and its/our relationship to the land, the commons and strained notions of environment. We embrace a multidisciplinary and multi-media approach, that seeks to invite and inspire conversation and participation. Living in a semi-rural environment and acknowledging our role as tangata Tiriti artists in Aotearoa New Zealand, we invite both likely and unlikely collaborations, conversations and varying perspectives.
