expect the unexpected
Opening 11am Saturday 21st September
Open 21st September to 27th October 2019
Join Village Arts Gallery at the upcoming exhibition ‘First Encounters: expect the unexpected’ where the contributing artists reflect on the many firsts of early New Zealand.
The exhibition is inspired by ‘Tuia Encounters 250’, the government event focusing on Cook’s voyage in 1769 marking 250 years since the first onshore meeting between Māori and Europeans. The contributing artists have looked beyond that specific event and given us their personal responses to the diverse first encounters that form our history, in which Hokianga has a prominent place.
