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.

AN OBSESSIVE PURSUIT
North Shore Ceramics
Until 3 May
The North Shore’s impressive ceramic tradition is highlighted in a fascinating survey exhibition that explores the local studio pottery movement from its beginnings in early 1950s, through the enormously productive 1970s – during which potters could barely keep up with the popular demand for domestic ware – to the present day as ceramics enjoys a resurgence.
KOREAN FINE ARTS
Until 10 May
The annual exhibition of the New Zealand Korean Fine Arts Association’s offers the opportunity to experience a broad range of styles – from traditional to European, and some a fascinating blend – by local Korean artists working in jewellery, sculpture, painting, print-making and other media.
19 April to 13 May
John Perry curates a selection of works from his personal collection that looks at the ways in which various cultures in Australia, Africa and the Pacific have used natural materials from the earth to decorate domestic and ceremonial objects, and to express their spiritual and philosophical beliefs.
Gallery open daily 10am to 4pm during exhibitions.
