The Great Plate

About this image

Whangarei Fritter Festival

The Great Plate is back!

The Quarry Arts Centre's annual fundraising event gets bigger and better every year, and 2018 is no exception.

Artists from far and wide are creating creating and decorating plates, which will be exhibited in our own Yvonne Rust Gallery, and auctioned on Trademe. This year, the proceeds will go towards a new community kiln, as we barely manage to keep up with demand with our existing kiln.

Exhibiting artists include: Anneke Muijlwyjik, Chuck Joseph, Fiona Tunnicliffe, Martha Mitchell, Hana Ott, Rosie Parsonson, Pete Cernis, M Francis McCarthy, and many many more! Plus, this year we have a special guest, Green MP Chloe Swarbrick.

The Quarry Arts Centre is a not-for-profit community arts centre in Whangarei. We provide workshops for beginners, masterclasses for established artists, and everyone in between. We have resident artists on site, with studios open to the public.

We have two beautiful galleries, showcasing local talent. Our focus is on ceramics, and we have a well -stocked ceramic supply store, along with a community kiln.
