This is just a plug for the Taranaki Art Awards…they really are good and if you do like seeing local artists talent, then get down to Opunake and check out the exhibition – featuring many of Taranaki’s (and NZ’s) finest artists, and new, exciting, emerging artists also frequently contribute. It’s on for several weeks.
Opening night is this friday, 7pm, its cheap as chips and includes a glass of bubbly. It’s also a nice day trip – round the mountain, stop in Eltham (vintage shops and cheese), Stratford (Art Gallery), Opunake (art exhibition, cafes, shops and beach picnic)..so make day of it. If you have kids there is agreat playground down by the Opunake Beach and a skatepark (with No Graffiti!!!) right next to exhibition centre in Opunake.
Anyway – here is the link, FYI.
I’d love you to support local art, by checking it out if you are interested..ps, Opunake is a gorgeous 45 min drive from new Westown supermarket.
See you there!
