ART EXPO 2016
In a collaborative project for social good the Women’s Centre Rodney and 40 local artists are hosting a community lead art exhibition at The Woolshed, Country Park, Matakana from 30th September to 9th October 2016. This ‘pop up’ exhibition organised by the Women’s Centre Rodney and local artists is a fundraiser for the Centre and an opportunity to support local artists in the community. With the support of well-known artists such as Star and Ra Gossage, Louise McGraw, Jenta Griffin, Awa Gillgren, Pat Betts and Heather Owens exhibiting and many other prominent, new and emerging artists it is an opportunity for the community to come together and support a local charity and the arts. Local college students have also been invited to exhibit alongside more established artists to encourage participation in the art community from a young level.
The art exhibition includes many differing mediums such as painting, sculpture, photography, jewellery, furniture, print and much more.
Opening night is on 30th September from 6 pm to 9.30 pm and the exhibition runs daily from 9am to 4.30 pm until the 9th October. All proceeds from the exhibition go towards supporting the delivery of services by the Women’s Centre in the North Rodney area.
