Connected to the Internet today so followed up your letter's suggestion and there you were!
It is so frustrating to be able to see so much but so little of the work!
Bill has joined us now. Will go back and look over your site.

I'm very impressed with virtual tart - the New Zealand flavour is pretty powerful - clear positive with no murkey overtones.

Loved the art on your site. John Mclean's work looks great.
Reminds me of an exhibition I saw (Bacon) long ago in London.


December 6, 1997

Andy Bassett & Trish Kane, New Zealand
Hi. We finally read your message!
We loved the exhibition.
Thought it would be good to show the year of each of John's works, as it spans such a long period.

Dear John
Dale Copeland wrote me about your new exhibition so I took a look in it. There are many nice picture to see, :-) especially the "Taranaki Farm Track" is my favourite picture from you.

alvaro ortiz, Nederlands
fascinating stuff John McLean.
As you scroll down the page of your "Inside Out" exhibition, Like you say "the theme unfolds" in a very theatrical sense.
But then each single painting is an intense meaning by itself.
I guess it must have been a lot of work to scan all this, but hey, it's worth it.

mavis gibsons grandson, New Zealand
different...the worldwide prospects and opportunities could be endless...

Keep up your stimulating ideas


November 27, 1997

Elizaveta Khokhlova, Russia
I'd like the works of Alby Carter, Yvonne Coleman & Roger Morris.
The "When the Lady Sings" by John McLean is excellent.
I live in Petergof, St. Petersburg, Russia.
Also, i'd like to say that the "Quintessential No 1." by Alby Carter is very nice for me and my boy-friend.
I didn't know anything about New Zealand artists, so it's a great pleasure for me to visit your web-gallery.
With best wishes,
Liza.

Anna Maclennan, New Zealand
Fab Site!
Eye Catching - I've reviewed over 14 NZ Art related sites in the last 48 hours for a internet course I'm completing through AIT. Would have done more but had to present myself at work today. Your site is great, uncluttered and easy to follow.
Would like to see more standardized info about each of your group, what has influenced your work, your stlye etc.

Adoration in abundance and a Virtual PAVLOVA with it.
Yours is a site we tell many people about, celebrate for all you are worth!

Andrew Hackworth, Thailand
Since you set this page up so few weeks ago I have spent more than a few hours poring over everything you scanned in, alone and with others who live here. I'm sorry Paul, but my daughter and her friends are transfixed by your dental work in one, and great butt in the other. I think Mr Lambert's "Morning Coffee" is stunning. And I find myself constantly going back to Marrianne Muggeridge's "Sleep" and "Aimee & Nina" where even on a 2-D screen I get the feeling I am looking in on something significant, interupting but sharing at the same time. We hope you have a great party.
I'll stay tuned.
Cheers

Rachel McAlpine, New Zealand
Hi everybody!
Do you realise just how awesome the Virtual Tart and Puniho Web sites are? They download so fast and they look so good. This is, er, unusual on the Net. Been great to catch up with what you are painting and assembling these days. Now all we need is LOTS OF SALES over the Internet and a lot of good tarty parties too.
cheers, rachel


November 15, 1997

John Cox and the 2-GIRLZ, USA
What an outstanding collection of art! This is truly impressive. We have been long-time admirers of Puniho's art and now we get to enjoy this excellent collection of artists. This site is like an assemblage Dale C. made out of artists! Please keep it up and let us know when you add more. Thanks from Florida, USA.

I'D LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR PUTTING ALL AMAZING PIECES ON THE WEB. THEY ARE REALLY BEAUTIFUL AS I LOVE THE WAY YOU USE DISCARDED OBJECTS IN YOUR WORKS AS THEY ARE OFTEN SO MORE INTERESTING THAN THE NEW.
THANKS.

Hello,
well, I paid a visit and I am glad that I did.
I think just about everything you are showing there is really excellent.

Enjoyed the "fission chips" viewing, so much to see and ponder, obviously an impressive show in the flesh.
It works on the screen really well.
Do hope the show has been good for you in Wellington.

Kia ora Dale:
I've just visited the virtual tart web site and look forward to seeing the exhibition when it opens at Arthaus on Thursday in Wellington.
I've also read your 'rant' --it's always illuminating to learn about what inspires art.
Best of luck for the exhibition!

I truly enjoyed "walking" through your gallery the works are very beautiful. Myself a painter I am of the school that relates to art through the intuition and color. Thank you for this great experience.
Peace & Light!

Wendy Ricketts, New Zealand
I think your sight is one of the most exciting I've come across. I live in Taranaki and was especially thrilled to see work from artists from our region. I hope that this encourages more local artists to take there work out there. I enjoy puddling around with painting myself and waited impatiently for your sight to open. Congratulations to all who worked on it and contributed such wonderful work. I will definitely be a regular visitor!!!
WELL DONE!

Will Hanson

Nice site! I like the idea of a virtual gallery. Most important is the way it gets new and fresh ideas out for all to experience. I love the diversity and will come back often to see what your contributing artists have to offer. Keep up the good work!

Dale de Cleene, New Zealand
Love that surrealistic art!

Sandy Knowles, Canada
To Denise Newland,
No, I did not come here last time. I sent my note to you by clicking on your Email address directly beneath your biographical note. Does this note get read by all the artists on the Virtual TART guest book? I imagine so. Anyway, the exhibition is great!! It gives me such a sense of pride to see the artwork of one of my friends!! Keep up the good work!
Sandy from CANADA

Well TART I think this is absolutely wonderful idea.
I couldn't get to the opening of the ARTIZIONE exhibition .....and seeing this will motivate me to get my TBIG ...which means Taranaki Butt Into Gear and go and have a bit of TART ...hopefully Andreas will supply the JAM.

We've followed with interest your approaches to marketing art work on the internet. One of our premier photographers has been excitedly planning a trip to NZ within the next year. His work graces the cover of the 1996 Sierra Wilderness Calendar, among other credits. Will keep in touch should he be interested in contacting fellow artisans abroad. His name, George M. Hager, and I'll attempt to forward your URL to their e-mail address. Best Wishes

Thanks for letting me know about your site. You all have some interesting work there.


October 3, 1997

J.K. Post, USA
Like what I see so far. There is a different artistic touch in NZ than the art from this Central New York region, where there are many artists, and difference is what makes art (or whatever) vital and interesting.

Ed Gordon, New Zealand
Looks Cool, Team! I'll just have to get a bigger, better, and above all faster modem. Still, the anticipation is probably good for the soul...

"edgecity" , New Zealand
Had a good long look at the Tart site, and to all concerned- it is tremendously enjoyable viewing. You have done a marvelous job, it is so great to not have to make do with the a verbal of a picture but to actually be able to see in this way.

Robert McLachlan, New Zealand
Yum yum, fresh tart.
Congratulations Dale, the site is superb.
Don't let it go stale.
It's nice to see so many pictures of people. People seem to have been nearly forgotten in New Zealand art. All those desolate landscapes with a lonely industrial relic in the foreground, surely that genre is exhausted now.
Time for desolate landscapes with people in 'em.
Particularly liked Marianne Muggeridge's Nina, yum! (wasn't she in a Massey magazine recently?)
Yvonne Coleman reminded me of the naive show at the National Library - there are several by Gold of Taranaki showing the mountain about 3 times as pointy as it really is and "Two girls" by Pauline Giles. It would be nice to be able to draw like that.
Well all you guys must have explored the Mt Taranaki theme pretty thoroughly by now but that's a topic for another day.
Robert

Congratulations Dale and co; you have put together a wonderful site.
I love the colours and the clarity of those art works. I'm looking forward to catching them in Taranaki some time. If only the Stratford Tech Centenary wasn't in the middle of exams... :-((
