Tauranga Art Gallery: lighting up my life!


The Tauranga Art Gallery has another exhibition which will appeal to everyone: it’s focus is human interaction and light: LIGHT TOUCH.  I haven’t been “downtown” for a while now (parking) and so haven’t been my usual haunter of the Gallery on the corner of Willow Street.  I know my life is the poorer for this.  So, yesterday after talking with Rotorua artist, Miriam Ruberl, I add “Tauranga Art Gallery” to my to do list.  And it was worth it.   

There is something so exciting seeing exhibitions change: a totally different dimension to a gallery visit.  In the Atrium the next exhibition preparation is underway.  But Claudette directs me to the heavily curtained doorway: Light Show.  And it’s so good.Don’t think this is it – it’s not static. It’s just wonderful waterfalls of light and colour.   And there are two other very interesting interactive pieces.   

I’ve included a brief

walk-around video but do come on down and immerse yourself in this light and fun creative experience.


And don’t forget the 9th April 3.30pm to 5pm MUKA YOUTH PRINTS for art aficionados 5 – 18 years!
