All the same but different
In February 2008, eighteen students from the Hokianga and Kaikohe regions enrolled to undertake study in a Northtec Applied Arts programme at the Rawene Campus under the tutelage of well-known artist and art educator Sue Daly-Hughes.
This project Ōrite…rite…he rerekē is an exhibition that will bring together once again, this group of artists and their tutors, ten years later in March 2018 in a celebratory exhibition comprising a selection of artworks in painting, mixed media, carving, jewellery, ceramics and photography.
The artists have been asked to explore, create and share a visual or conceptual component that expresses their ideas around the opposites of sameness and difference – Ōrite…rite…he rerekē / All the same but different.
Art. Design. Artisan craft.
Up-cycled furniture … and more
Opening 11am Saturday the 16th of December running until late February 2018
A collaboration between the Department of Corrections,
Redemption Arts & Education Services and Village Arts.
This exhibition offers the men at NRCF an opportunity to explore what it means to make art in the prison environment. Many of the works are collaborative and challenge preconceived ideas about what the purpose of prison art is.
Situated in the Hokianga. Village Arts will host artworks made by men who whakapapa to that area. It will be a homecoming of sorts a joyful and challenging experience for the artists and the community. How can we contain that?
