Artist doing things in fine style.

The Press     01 October 2004

Peter Caley's attention is caught between an unfinished art gallery and a voluminous marquee in the middle of Geraldine's pretty domain.
Both are works in progress. The marquee tomorrow night will host a party such as Geraldine has not seen for many years. Ministers of the crown will be there, an MP or two, and a welter of local body politicians.

Down the road, in Geraldine's main street, finishing touches are being put to the Caley Maori Art Gallery and Museum. It will be the focus of attention for Caley and his small staff as he brings his oil art to South Canterbury from the moister climes of Otira.
Caley ran his Caley art Gallery in Otira for two and a half years from a hall. But was unable to expand the operation because of a lease arrangement. Caley is announcing his arrival in style.

With the help of many sponsors, Caley and Master of Ceremonies Gary McCormick will woo a crowd of several hundred at a formal dinner, Caley tends to do things in style - hence the black tie dinner and the opening of the gallery by Timaru Mayor Wynne Raymond - and he makes no secret that his art makes money. The average price of his oil paintings, he says, is between $30,000 and $70,000, with some fetching $100,000. But, He says, with a regular supply of commission work, paintings are rarely for sale, let alone his Maori art.
He says his prized works will stay in the permanent collection in the gallery despite good offers for some works.
