Pop up exhibition for Omokoroa

Posted at 4:06pm Monday 28 Jan, 2013 | By Andrew Campbell

Omokoroa artists are taking an idea from post-quake Canterbury and holding a pop-up exhibition of their work during the next two weeks.

A pop-up exhibition of work by Omokoroa artists is on show during the next two weeks.

Located in an unfinished commercial premises at 170 Omokoroa Road, the exhibition opens on Friday and continues for the next couple of weeks taking in Auckland Anniversary Day and Waitangi Day.

“The idea came from the unfortunate situation in Christchurch where they have had to be relocated with their businesses and whatever, and they just pop up somewhere else,” says co-ordinator Heather Reynolds.

“That's the idea of the pop-up. The gallery is a two week idea to see what happens.

“There's vacant space for lease out here and we thought we would do a bit of a promo for the group and for the peninsula for two weeks over Anniversary Weekend and Waitangi Day. And a lot of Tauranga people come this way.”

About 16-17 members of the Omokoroa Artists group will be contributing to the exhibition, expected to comprise 60-70 pieces.

As well as paintings in watercolour, oils and acrylics in a variety of styles, Heather says there will also be copper aeroplanes and ‘little wooden recycled rimu bits and bobs' on display.

Exhibition hours are 10am-4pm.
