Back in 2001 when The Cool Store Gallery first opened, the Wearable Arts show was held in Nelson. Tricia Morrison’s Mapua gallery rapidly became a favourite amongst show visitors and entrants alike. Tricia’s eye for quality attracted some of New Zealand’s most acclaimed artists whilst her grass roots approach ensured there was always some new talent to be discovered.


Today, The Cool Store Gallery in Mapua is as popular as ever and to celebrate Nelson’s connection with WOW, Tricia will be exhibiting The Cool Store’s finest pieces in Wellington for the performance spectacle that is now The World of Wearable Art Show.


Works by Wearables favourites will be exclusively on show:- Letty MacPhedran (Inaugural Artistic Excellence Award 2003 & Supreme award winner 1993), Greta Tapper (Supreme Award Winner 2003) along side the multi talented daughter of the show’s founder, Emma Moncrieff .
