NO EXIT. An Artist Talk by Maggy J.
Join us this Saturday at 1pm for a talk by established contemporary artist Margaret Johnston. Maggy will share her art practice, which is environmentally and feminist based where “I endeavour to highlight environmental issues that we are in the position to make changes and help improve the health of the planet. My work also addresses gender equality issues and the position of women in art, and in the world.
‘Womanly’ skills of weaving, crochet and knitting are employed in order to move them from the realm of craft, into the white cube space of Fine Art.

We are optimistically planning for a celebration for the openings and closings of our wonderful group of exhibitors. However Covid levels may again shift the sands on that so we’ll keep you keep posted through our social media channels

Ano me He Wharepuungawerewere is a Maori proverb that likens a beautifully carved or weaved house (Wharenui), to that of a beautifully and intricately weaved spider’s web. This whakatauki can also be used to express or denote the ideas of a house full of spider webs, collecting dust etc.
Ano me He Wharepuungawerewere began as a woven sculptural object for Changing Threads 2021, inspired by the waiata Te Moemoea o Whakatū by Hone Nuku, by contemporary artist Samara Davis and has evolved into her first solo exhibition of intrinsically made objects exploring the marae and the whāriki (woven mat) as places for connection, understanding, Turangawaewae and the sharing of knowledge. You are invited to an artist talk Tuesday 12th October 1pm and Saturday 23rd October 1pm and you are invited for community engagement in an ongoing work every Tuesday and during the exhibition

We proudly present new works by Stan Bowski, Richard Sellars and Kathleen Bartha.
in another happy RE:imagine for Refinery ArtSpace. Delta 2.0.
