Whangarei Fritter Festival

‘Ma te wai, ka ora tonu ngā mea katoa!’

Through water, all things live! Water gives life to all things!

New Zealand is surrounded by oceans and sea and is home to many rivers and inland waterways. This environmental fact inspired the group exhibition Water, hosted at The Geoff Wilson Gallery, Northtec, Whangarei.

The exhibition features works by twelve, experienced and emergent, New Zealand 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.

A calendar of events, workshops, lectures and discussions, will accompany the exhibition as Water runs its course through May – June.
