Opening Hours
Tuesday - Saturday, noon - 7.00pm
Sunday, noon - 3.00pm
Description

An exhibition celebrating a life of creative projects;  “to kind of protest in favour of scruffiness, bodies, hairy bodies, scruffy sexuality, which is connected with my butchness”.
‘Me as a butch child with imaginary butch parent’ is a huge pen-and-ink drawing of being held, showing the imagined experience of being loved, and accepted. Works celebrate unseen lives, like Creek's friend Joan, filmed smashing jars of preserves against a wall as the only way she could express her grief at the death of her secret lesbian lover of 30 years.
“Queer vanity, irreverence and exaggeration, including via melodrama, are techniques of expressing. No-one else is gonna do vanity for you, or tell you you're glorious. You'd better do it yourself.”
This is an exhibition that celebrates us all as glorious, with our strange sounds, awkward sex lives, attempts at meaning, tiny projects, and experiments. It says the ordinary can be extraordinary.

Description

A golem is a clay being in Jewish mystical practice, created for a specific task. Ideally, they are created for the benefit of a community, but, just like the people who create them, they are inherently flawed. While often seen as a symbol of chaos and destruction, they have with them the power to heal, create and hold guardianship over a community. The difference lies in the intention and impact of the person who creates them. I build golems as a way of understanding the individual and its place within a community. While I create them with my own self in mind, their end purpose is to give space to all who navigate place and belonging to a range of contradicting, yet beautiful cultures.

Clay sculpture workshops!

Te Aro TexTILES is a group show featuring the work of 3rd year College of Creative Arts students from Massey University.

In celebrating Te Aro through the medium of Textile Design,  this exhibition showcases surface pattern as a means of observing and analysing the urban environment.

To study at Massey, the students have travelled from all over the country; with all of the exhibitors being new to Wellington, this exhibition visually documents how they have connected to the city. Observing and engaging with Te Aro through several perspectives; with walking and drawing framed as a mode of encounter with the world around us.  

Sketches of the inner city were then developed through the medium of sublimate printing and digital, hand-painted and collage processes.

Te Aro TexTILES presents a range of textile and ceramic tile designs that celebrate the inner city's rich diversity through colour, texture, pattern, mark, and movement.

It is just as important to take care of our Mental health as it is our physical health and in fact, they are often intertwined.

Over the following week 10 - 16th OCTOBER five artists come together to present an exhibition of visual art that explores the notions and necessities of refining our understandings of our inner minds, to find that place that we can call a safe haven from the occasional destructive forces at work around us.

Alongside the exhibition various practitioners will lead workshops that will enable us to build a set of tools in order to live a more balanced, harmonious lifestyle.

Thanks to the kind donations of DeepWave & Wellington City Council this whole event can be enjoyed for FREE!

A creatively curated exhibition of unique and exquisite heritage textiles & crafts, with written and visual narratives from many corners of the world, will be on display.

Wellington city is a melting pot of people from many parts of the world, more so than ever. The wider Wellington Community accepts and celebrates this global diversity through cultural events, food festivals and eateries which helps raise awareness, understanding and acceptance of each other's culture and heritage.

This exhibition represents the fabric of our Wellington Community through a rich display of cultural and heritage attires, textiles, accessories etc., from NZ, Pacifica, Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, India, Bhutan, Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Africa, Guatemala, Peru, Japan, Ghana and many more.

The generational knowledge, skills and techniques used to create these beautiful works are slowly disappearing in this modern age, and some are already lost. Come and join us on this visual journey.

Opening Night on Monday 26th September - 4pm to 8pm - All welcome. 

We will also run a series of audio-visual presentations on selective days in the adjacent Thistle Hall Meeting Room. For more details, visit https://atitravel.nz/textile-exhibition/

When you explore the streets of Wellington, you’ll find nice little palaces everywhere.

There are buildings all across this city known as electricity substations. They power our lives and are a presence in every neighbourhood.

Some have operated for a century and many feature art inspired by the communities they serve. Yet, these striking structures are seemingly invisible.

Nice Little Palaces is a solo photography exhibition that brings them into the light and celebrates the important role they play in powering Pōneke. Come along for an electrifying experience!

Description

delimit is a group show of contemporary jewellers and jewellery adjacent practitioners. It features the work by 33 artists from across the motu. The artists have worked in a range of media exploring the concepts of interstitiality and liminality. If an object is a discrete form in a given state, then it stands to reason that it must have an ending, an edge or threshold, where said object and or its state ceases to be and something other begins, and between these beginnings and endings there must be a space, or a clearing, the smallest of intervals between things, a void, a new space, so that what is not there has the same weight as what is.

Painting has been a constant pursuit of all three of us women. We have known each other for many years and share similar viewpoints on life and the world around us. We chose to exhibit together as we all share a great joy in creating and wanted to share our creativity to a wider audience. We paint generally from a representative viewpoint but then we often wander from this into abstract form.

In our Exhibition we plan on providing inspiration for other emerging artists, especially those who have, or will shortly be, finishing study in the Creative disciplines.  We will be showing how it is possible for emerging artists to create their own artistic identities and unique styles of art, whilst staying true to themselves and their passion for creating. We will be showcasing high quality art which we hope will inspire others to get creative themselves.  Our artworks will portray objects and subject matter that convey our own unique personalities, emotions and interests. There will be artwork in a range of media including Glass, paintings, prints, ceramics, digital illustrations and bronze work.
