Thank you for visiting www.sweetarts.info. Our website provides a first point of contact for information about our art projects, exhibitions, events and works for sale. SweetArts is a creative collaboration between Wellington based husband and wife, Alan and Ellen Hodgetts, and has come about because of our mutual love of art. SweetArts provides the platform for us to work together on fun and interesting creative projects. It is our way of opening the door to the world of art and to communicate more widely about the things we do.
We take our art seriously - but not ourselves. Clients, visitors to our exhibitions, friends and business associates appreciate our accessible and non-elitist approach to art. We are both practising artist members of the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts and exhibit regularly in the Wellington region.
Photos can never do justice to artwork. Textures, detail, effects and physical presence can only be appreciated in person. To see our work for real, check out our news and exhibitions page or our media links below. We have a small home studio and gallery so private viewings are available by arrangement.
We hope you enjoy sweetarts.info and welcome any enquiries and feedback.
