The two galleries administered by The Incubator Creative Hub in the Historic Village in the Tauranga Avenues have unique and so very different exhibitions of creativity showing. Both are individually worth a visit and together all I can say is you should not miss them.
ARTY DARTY AT THE PEOPLE’S GALLERY
This could be described as an exhibition of embellished furniture. The artists have taken the cabinets in which darts are stored and transformed them in their own way and in their own style. The range of decoration is fascinating. Some seem to have no association with the treasures they contain but are merely platforms for the artist’s talent. Others really do reference the lethal, metallic objects they are to house. I loved this whole exhibition. I didn’t enter the competition for “people’s favourite” but tonight I’m going to confess that I’d rather like to be taking home the one with the metallic finish. But as I cannot play darts (or cards) I’d probably use the cabinet as an art object. In their own way they were all beautiful. What a cool idea for an exhibition – like the skateboard one coming up at “the Inc” I hope this exhibition becomes a regular arts calendar event.
The exhibition is showing at The People’s Gallery until the 24th September 2019.
ULMEJ GLAMUZINA: PAINTING OVER A NEW LEAF at the Incubator Gallery
This is a beautiful painterly exhibition of contrasts. I suppose professionally trained art reviewers avoid the use of words such as “like, love, want, take home”. Fortunately I’m not a professionally trained art reviewer so I can say I loved this exhibition particularly the abstracted images and I like the contrast of the perfect with the reality of the incomplete or damaged. I would need a truck to help me take home what I would like.
