The People’s Gallery in the Historic Village is showing a collection of work by students of Tauranga Girls’ College.
While the style and standard of creativity is diverse, I am amazed by the maturity of thought and technique I often find in exhibitions of work by “young people”. I always find these showings uplifting and my Saturday morning visit to The People’s Gallery was no exception.
It was wonderful to see Nic Clegg and Charlie Clegg visiting this exhibition. You’ll see from the video below that in the short time I was in the Gallery several people came and went.
The Gallery is a beautifully restored, older wooden building saved from the wider Western Bay District. Nearly all of the buildings in this complex have been rescued and restored. Those under the management of The Incubator Creative Hub have also been presented to enhance the age and style of the building. I’ve always loved the tan deeply buttoned settee which is now an integral part of The People’s Gallery – you can see that in the video. Apologies for the low-level of sound in the video.
The Tauranga Girls College Art Expo continues at The People’s Gallery until the 7th September 2019
When: 22 August – 7 September
Where: The Peoples Gallery – Historic Village, 17th Ave, Tauranga
Presented by: The Incubator Creative Hub
“Art EXPO of student artwork of Tauranga Girls’ College.
Visit this exhibition of the wonderful artwork of some very talented emerging artists.
Last year’s show was extremely well-received. Get in quick if you want to buy an investment into a young woman’s future.” (statement from Creative Bay of Plenty)
The Incubator Gallery had an exhibition by Elliot Cauldwell. Some of Elliot’s work reminded me of the work of Western Bay of Plenty artist Elliot Mason. There was also a strong stylistic reference to the techniques of Australian aboriginal art. It was a large body of work on show accompanied by cushions and cushion covers featuring the artist’s images.More information about Elliot Cauldwell https://www.zethnicart.co.nz/
