Water exhibition to run at NorthTec gallery

A group exhibition of works by a dozen New Zealand artists goes on display at NorthTec’s Geoff Wilson Gallery from tomorrow (3 May).

The exhibition, Water, is inspired by the fact that New Zealand is surrounded by oceans and sea and is home to many rivers and inland waterways.

It features works by 12 experienced and emergent artists, each responding to the notion of water via an image, sound or sensation. Represented are discussions pertaining to the qualities of water albeit; beauty, environmental challenges, cultural discussions or water’s sensual and erotic nature.

Participating artists include: Angela Carter, Benjamin Pittman, Brenda Briant, Denise Batchelor, Emma Smith, Jill Sorensen, Linda Cook, Lydia Anderson, Martha Mitchell, Natalie Robertson, Robert Carter and William Bardebes.

Following the opening on 3 May at 4pm, Water runs until 25 June. Gallery hours are Wednesday to Friday, 10am to 4pm, or by appointment. A calendar of events, workshops, lectures and discussions will accompany the exhibition, which is curated by Gallery Assistant, Linda Cook.
