Joseph Rowntree is an emerging artist from Hawke’s Bay who is fast gaining a reputation for his use of repurposed windows as an alternative canvas.

After winning the 2020 ‘CANdid-50’ People’s Choice Award, Joseph was presented with a 2021 complimentary two week exhibition in the CAN Small Gallery. Rowntree’s resulting exhibition ‘New School Relics’ on display for 3 weeks, is a collection of studio works reflecting Joseph’s exploration of ‘post-British empire’ life in Aotearoa.

This will be accompanied by Joseph in a weekend residency, where the public will have the opportunity to watch the artist paint May 21 -23.

Come along and meet Joe the opening of ‘New School Relics’ – Saturday May 15th, at 5.30pm.
