Located in a state-of-the-art purpose built gallery on Holloway Street in the
historic precinct the impressive new space displays paintings, jewellery,
sculpture, ceramics, woodwork, photography, reproduction prints and cards
along with the personal work of owners Rex and Melanie Eade.
“The building’s interior is an urban industrial design with the gallery
downstairs and apartment living upstairs. The interiors are kept at an ambient
temperature all-year-round, through the installation of underfloor heating
linked to an external air-to-water heat pump to maximise energy savings,” says
Melanie. ”Lighting is the most important element of a gallery which is why we
imported specialist LED gallery lighting from Europe.”
She says the gallery currently represents over 20 artists and is introducing
new work throughout the season providing a diverse range to suit all tastes.
“Many artists are working in remote areas or from their homes scattered
throughout the Central Otago region and the gallery is right in the heart of
the landscape that inspires their work.”
“The new gallery space will allow us to introduce more local works and expand
the variety of mediums we have. This is important for many of our collectors
who regularly seek new and updated pieces. Currently on display and available
to purchase are distinctive landscapes by Maurice Middleditch, Richard Parsons,
Nigel Wilson, Rachel Hirabayashi, Marg Hamilton and Judy Smith. The vivid
mixed media paintings by Esther Dexter and Ro Bradshaw are sought after
and we have beautiful Raku pottery by Kathi McLean and Lynne Wilson.”
Fine jewellery crafted by Rainer Beneke, John Robinson and David McLeod
from Dunedin is also on display in the gallery.
“The jewellery is stunning and we are excited that one of our jewellers, Neil
Adcock, will have some of his hand crafted pieces shown at the 2017 Venice
Biennale which is one of the most prestigious art events in the world.”
“Local wood craftsman Jim Robbie brings out the beauty of wood grain in his
burr bowls and steam punk sci-fi artist Sean Boyd provides an insight into the
power of his imagination through his intricate sculptural pieces.”
Melanie personally produces artwork in her own distinctive mixed media style
and offers in-house consultations for new builds or for people wanting to add
to their art collection.

Taking its name from its owner Paulina Corvalan,
Paulina’s is Clyde’s newest restaurant, and has quickly
established a reputation for its fresh, flavoursome and
uncomplicated food served daily.
The menu draws inspiration from Paulina’s Chilean heritage fused with
her favourite cultural influences from places like Italy, Japan and Mexico.
She is well versed in combining international flavours to create sumptuous
and adventurous cuisine with her background as a chef in high-end luxury
lodges in New Zealand.
“Our menu for winter has some wonderful new dishes along with some of
the all-time favourites. The slow roasted pork belly, for example, is hugely
popular so that remains on the menu,” she says. “We have introduced
Chinese-style dumplings served with an Asian salad and dipping sauce
which is already one of the most ordered dishes as a starter while the
Spanish inspired paella is new featuring
180grams of seafood including blue cod,
prawns and mussels – it’s gluten and dairy
free and a delicious and hearty dish for the
Texture, aroma and flavour are the key to the
superb dishes Paulina and her kitchen team
produce each week using the very best local
produce and meat. New Zealand grown lamb,
pork and chicken have a big appeal with up to
500grams of meat chargrilled for each dish in
the restaurant’s traditional wood fire oven.
“It’s an exciting way to cook with the fire
roaring in the back of the oven,” says Paulina.
