Paint it Pink – Gloria Pop-up Installation by Sam Duckor-Jones

Sunday 14 May 2023, 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM, Back of the Anzac Hall, entrance via Birdwood Street. KOHA

In October 2021, poet and sculptor Sam Duckor-Jones moved into the former St Andrews Church in Blaketown, Greymouth. He set about painting the building pink – inside and out  –  and named it Gloria. The work also features a unique congregation of 50 papier-mâché people. In 2023, Featherston Booktown offers you the opportunity to experience an innovative and immersive work of art that the world is talking about. The pop-up Gloria will explode this year’s Karukatea Festival with resplendent pink hues and tones, and offer the opportunity to reflect on the journey of transformation – both artistic and human.
