Stories Told show starts tomorrow

A new exhibition Stories Told by Amanda Hewlett and Cecilie Elliot starts tomorrow, and runs until Monday November 27th.

Amanda’s paintings combine the kōrero and physicality of the landscape, and are inspired by the poetry of James K. Baxter. Cecilie’s quirky sculptures celebrate the joy of life, created during her treatment for cancer. Click here for more information about the artists and their inspirations.
