Exhibition of Kapiti artists opens in Wellington
An exhibition featuring 41 Kāpiti artists, showcasing their work in one gallery for the first time, is now open in Wellington.
‘Kapiti Artists A Capital Show’ was launched at the Parliamentary Gallery last night with speeches from MP for Ōtaki Nathan Guy and Mayor Ross Church.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for a Wellington audience to see what great work our Kāpiti artists are creating,” Mayor Church says.
“Many people from around the region come to our Arts Trail each year to experience what we have to offer. We’re now bringing our art to the capital.”
Council’s Arts & Museum Development Officer Catherine Scollay says the launch was a real success.
“It was fabulous to see such quality artworks in a professional gallery setting. The artists also enjoyed the opportunity to meet each other and see each other’s work.”
The exhibition runs at the Parliamentary Gallery (Bowen House, 70/84 Lambton Quay) from 12 August to 26 September, 10am to 3pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
