What’s On

CAN-e-News Wednesday 9 January 2019

First of all, from all of us at the CAN, Happy New Year to you! We hope that 2019 brings you all that you wish for, and more…

To kick off 2019 with a bang, this Friday 11 January at 5pm to 7pm, we have a unique opening event that you need to mark in your calendar, especially if you love fine art photography!

Join the photographers to proudly celebrate the opening of ‘Iris’; an exhibition of exceptional photography presented by the NZIPP.

The New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography (NZIPP) is an internationally recognised organisation, and the only qualifying body for professional photographers in New Zealand. NZIPP is also a not-for-profit organisation, run by photographers for photographers.

Established in 1938, the organisation has a great appreciation for the history of the industry, coupled with a huge vision as the members move forward collectively. Their aim is to encourage and cultivate friendship, collaboration and the sharing of knowledge between members, alongside setting standards in technical, creative and business practice. 

‘Iris’ is an exhibition of a selection of awarded photographic images from the 2018 NZIPP Iris Awards. 

Most of the photographers exhibiting are from the Hawkes Bay & greater Central Districts Region, with one or two from Wellington and the Bay of Plenty.

The results are stunning, and as photography is now long established as a contemporary fine art genre, ‘Iris’ is a must-see.

‘Iris’ will be on display in the Main Gallery until 24 January.
