Robin Slow, Brian Flintoff & Bob Bickerton


Robin Slow's paintings, Brian Flintoff's carvings & taonga pūoro together with Bob Bickerton's soundtrack celebrate tikanga Maori and remind us that we are go through life facing the past and walking backwards into the future. This multi-sensory exhibition weaves together stories & music, where time, place and people are interconnected and tikanga, memories and thoughts are passed on.

"Korero tukuiho (stories of the past), with its tikanga, memory and thoughts, provide us with an avenue of not only survival but an enhancement of that survival." Robin Slow

Kei a te Po te timatatanga o te waiatatanga mai te Atua. Ko te Ao marama, ko te Ao tu roa.

It was the night, that the Gods sang the world into existence. From the world of light, into the world of music.

Beatrice Carlson

The Fabulous Beatrice Carlson is back again with a fascinating new exhibition: 'Vie de Boheme...

My Art is dictated by my roots, I am a French new media artist living in New  Zealand.

Based on a life time photographies from Europe & Here…

It is an autobiographic work, depicting my fragmented life, showing the past

with my Kiwi mind and Present with my French eye.

I blend my life as I do my Artworks.

It might be why I have such a complicity with my computer…Layers make

sense; blending, fading are my everyday friends!

Sally Barron

Sally Barron Exhibition 'The Go-Between'. March 5 - March 26th

Sally Barron has taken her latest work to a new level. Her paintings walk a beautiful line between Figurative and Abstract painting. Loosely woven landscapes, rich in colour, Sally has the ability to transport us far away to places that are actually right in front of us.

Sally Burton

Sally Burton is back with a gorgeous new exhibition - 'unknown ancestors'. Inspired by her great grandfathers photo album full of images of unknown ancestors, Sally has invented her own stories about these people. Who were they? Where did they come from? Dressed in their colonial attire and placed in primordial landscapes, reminiscent of the shaped limestone of Takaka Hill.

Shadows of people appear in the landscapes representing small interventions of humanity on the land.

These paintings in Acrylic on tapa cloth and canvas.
