    • Artist's Floor
      • Through the unconventional choice of spray paint, this series encapsulates the vibrancy and unexpected elegance of daily life in Wellington. This technique sheds light on the oft-overlooked medium, elevating its potential to convey the intricate dance between order and accident.

    • BOYS
      • BOYS is a celebration of queer male identity through intricate and lavish collage. Each "Boy" has a distinct character, from "Farm Boy" to "Dandy Boy", they portray glammed up, glittering versions of themselves. Camp, colourful, and often kitschy, BOYS takes the male gaze and turns it inwards to find the fabulous in the everyday. James Graves is a multi-disciplinary artist living in Te Whanganui-ā-Tara Wellington. His practice in collage has developed since finishing a BFA in video and performance.

    • Broccoli X Queer Joy
      • The uniting visual theme of this art exhibition is the broccoli, which our team has embraced as a symbol of queer joy and frivolity during this difficult time for our rainbow communities. With transphobia and online hate speech continuing to rise, we wanted to create a space of joy and silliness that gave a platform to rainbow artists of all generations and backgrounds.

    • Theme - Gatherings
      • Many hours are spent working up layers in the background, using mixed media, of oil, acrylic, old papers and architectural plans. Then scraping, peeling back and adding before the desired patina is achieved. The layers in the background often reflect the items painted on top, worn and chipped by time and use.

    • Community of Practise
      • Community of Practise is a collective exhibition highlighting creative practise outside the constraints of a standard working day of 9-5. The exhibition is a celebration of Whanganui-a-Tara based artists who are working in range of mediums from furniture, drawing, sculpture and painting. This community is most interested in establishing meaningful relationships between those interested in creative practise.

    • Poetics of Geometry
      • You are warmly invited to Poetics of Geometry, a solo exhibition featuring new abstract paintings by Beata Kozlowska. From the last several years of Wellington-based artistic journey, Kozlowska delves into the painterly medium, focusing on the language of abstraction. Poetics of Geometry explores unique visual associations from geometric shapes, analogous to the play of language in poetics. Kozlowska employs elements like colour, shape, texture, form and structure to manifest in varying scales and frequencies, mirroring nature.

    • Skullduggery Art Show
      • Made by Maranga is a creative collective of young adults with intellectual disabilities based in Wellington. We create a wide range of bespoke, ethically produced, handmade products working towards our goal of self-employment.

    • Optiv101 Political Football: Away Game
      • Political Football references two distinct cultural meanings across British and American politics. For hot and contentious issues, the Westminster code is to bury or prevaricate in contrast to the US style of scrimmage and fast resolution. The Optiv101 Political Football exhibition uses the US code of play, acting as a broadsheet of diverse readings and commentaries, as each artist kicks some hot issues to the centre field, adding perspective to the wider social and political milieux.

    • HM MAKES HATS
      • Local milliner Hayley May has over 30 years’ experience working in costume, specialising in making hats, gloves and other soft accessories – from Narnia to Middle Earth to Mulan and beyond… This exhibition of her work features limited edition and one-off visors, hats and headpieces made from a mix of vintage materials and off cuts, collected over the course of her career.

    • Scarcity & Abundance
      • My art comes from a deep appreciation of plants and has been an essential part of my healing after multiple bereavements over the past two years. I work in cyanotype and I use botanicals as my subjects. I am exploring ferns in this show because I find these ubiquitous and majestic plants beautiful, surprising and fascinating.

    • Figurative Expressions
      • Every week in the figurative class we spend approximately 4-5 hours with a model sometimes nude, where the class engage, capture, observe & express the experience they partake in through sketching, painting & sculpting. It's quite a magical process with its vulnerabilities, yet the connections & discoveries made are extremely powerful & inspiring.

    • Te Kawa a Maui
      • Te Whironui Collective's collection of Toi Māori Artworks are created specifically for Te Kawa a Maui to enhance Matariki celebrations, by providing Kaupapa Māori workshops and Purakau. Our purpose is to exhibit work that engages a public audience into a Māori creative space, prompting interest and discussion to enhance understanding and appreciation for Tarai Waka and Ngā Toi Māori Kaupapa with ‘Te Kawa a Maui’ being at the core of its theme.

    • NUWAO Oceania Nature Exhibition
      • NUWAO stands for Nature-based Urban design for Wellbeing and Adaptation in Oceania. We are a group of academic researchers and designers working on this three-year NUWAO project which is funded through the Royal Society of New Zealand Marsden Grant.
