The Whakatāne Society of Arts and Crafts will launch their annual exhibition Visual Expressions 2016 in the Sheaff Family Gallery, Te Kōputu a te whanga a Toi – the Whakatāne Library and Exhibition Centre this Saturday, 24 September until 6 November.

The Society showcases a diverse range of artworks, demonstrating the many techniques and skills practiced by exhibiting artists, including pottery, painting and fibre craft. The Society was formed in 1961, as the Form & Colour Group, by a group of painters and potters who were interested in promoting the arts and crafts in the community. They became the Whakatāne Arts Society in 1964. In the early 1980’s the Society combined with the Spinners and Weavers; Wood Turners; and the Lacemakers to form the current Whakatāne Society of Arts and Crafts.

The Society will also hold a pop up Art Market outside Te Kōputu on Saturday 24, September from 9am – 12pm. Organised by the Whakatāne Society of Arts and Crafts, you will find an array of fun, quirky and beautifully made arts and crafts outside Te Kōputu – the Whakatāne Library and Exhibition Centre.

Birds a Plenty will launch alongside Visual Expressions in the Whakatāne Community Board Gallery. The exhibition is a wunderkrammer of items drawn from the Museum’s extensive collections and supplemented by private collections. It includes never before seen items, including a unique kimono. This exhibition supports the annual birdsAplenty festival that celebrates the Eastern Bay of Plenty’s rich migratory and native birdlife.

Opening in the Opus gallery, A Harmony of Complexities – Frank and Molly Morpeth Canaday in Retrospect will be available for public viewing from Saturday 24 September until 20 November. http://www.whakatanemuseum.org.nz/
