Whakatāne Museum and Arts Coordinator Victoria Sinclair says the District is fortunate to have such talented artists in our community. “It really is a privilege to be able to showcase works of this calibre at Te Kōputu,” she says, “and also to support emerging artists by offering them a professional platform in which they can develop and exhibit new work. But it is also great for the public to be able to see different creative styles and approaches to art-making up close and in the gallery environment, and these two shows in particular really have something for everyone.”

Visual Expressions exhibition runs until 15 October and Ground Hum runs until 10 September 2017. Complimentary exhibition catalogues are also available for all gallery visitors.

  1. Greetings from Ohio! I’m bored at work so I decided to browse your site on my
    iphone during lunch break. I love the knowledge you provide here and can’t wait to

  2. A motivating discussion is definitely worth
    comment. I do think that you need to write more about this subject,
    it may not be a taboo subject but generally people do not
    discuss these topics. To the next! All the best!!

  3. Its such as you read my thoughts! You appear to grasp a lot approximately this, such as you wrote the book in it or something.

    I feel that you just can do with a few percent to power
    the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this
    is fantastic blog. A great read. I’ll definitely be back.

    writer for your blog. You have some really good posts and I believe I

    I mean Local creativity celebrated – News Whakatane is kinda
    plain. You might look at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create news titles to grab
    people to open the links. You might try adding a video or a related picture
    or two to get people interested about everything’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier.
