Out of the Blue

National Seaweek 2024

Date: Mar 1 – Mar 24Space: Main Gallery

An exhibition featuring HB artists in support of National Seaweek

We put the call out to local artists to submit a piece for this exhibition, and they answered strongly!

As a national annual celebration of our seas, fostering our connection with them and highlighting the environmental plights they face, Seaweek – Kaupapa Moana, hopes to inspire people to engage with nature, explore the ocean and develop a deep sense of connection to our environment so that all are inspired and empowered to be kaitiaki.

With over sixty works submitted, this exhibition promises to be an intimate reflection of connection with our oceans, sea life and surrounding environment, and a showcase of Hawke’s Bay artists who feel this calling.

The exhibition will open on Friday, 1st March 2024, at 5pm… all welcome, its going to be a good one!  This opening will also coincide with the opening of our Seaweek Youth Art Competition & Exhibition, in our Small Gallery.

We are pleased to announce that Liam Farris will be playing some cool tunes for us at this event 🙂
