WELCOME … HAERE MAI …MALO E ME’A MAI …
Multilingual words of welcome emblazoned on Northart’s window frontage invite all visitors into the gallery, open daily from 10am to 4pm during exhibitions. Tucked behind the Northcote shopping centre and alongside the library in the Kaipatiki region of Auckland’s North Shore, Northart is just ten minutes from downtown Auckland, with plenty of free parking and bus stops nearby. The gallery provides an accessible and community focussed programme of exhibitions by emerging and established, local and national artists, which changes out every three weeks, so there’s always something new and interesting. You’ll also discover an associated programme of regular public events, classes and arts activities. So drop in next time you are in the neighbourhood, or make a special trip. You’re always welcome at Northart.
This cash and carry exhibition featuring up to 270 compact and affordable works from 27 artists is the ideal opportunity to start or add to your art collection - from landscapes to abstract, still life to portraiture, drawing, painting or collage.
Students from Glenfield Intermediate and Takapuna Normal Intermediate have been out in their communities taking photographs over recent weeks as part of a challenge. ‘Snapshot 016’ was devised by Northart’s outreach and special events co-ordinator Catherine Ockenden as a project that would “spark and nurture an interest in photography in intermediate-aged students, engage them with their local community, and give them the opportunity to exhibit their work.
The gallery’s window spaces currently boast a selection of paintings by Sonja Drake, Victoria Anderson and Rosemary Theunissen, mixed media and collage works by Lindsey Kirk, and patinated bronze vessels by Phil Neary. They can be viewed outside of gallery hours and under lights at night.
Gallery open daily 10am to 4pm during exhibitions.
The Northart galleries will close to the public at 4pm on Friday 16 December, and re-open 5.30pm Friday 27 January 2017.
