A threesome of new exhibitions is open at Tauranga Historic Village, featuring oils, clay and photography.

The exhibitions are located across three galleries administered by The Incubator Creative Hub – The People’s Gallery – Toi Ka Rere, The Incubator Gallery, and The Pothouse Gallery.

Gig Photography, on display at The People’s Gallery – Toi Ka Rere, is a look at the Tauranga music scene through the lens of nine of our city’s photographers: Gary Harvey, John Baxter, Nicola Baxter, Jamie Coxon, Colin Lunt, Nick Newman, Paul Edwards, Nic Clegg, and Chris O’Donnell.

Mike Morgan is one of New Zealand’s most iconic artists. His exhibition, Mike Morgan Oils, is in the Incubator Gallery.

Mike’s vibrant oil paintings are instantly recognisable for their vivid detail, as well as being much like the man himself; full of colour and humour. Inspired mostly by Salvador Dalí and René Magritte, the ideas for his art arise from dreams, wildlife, and the intricacies of human nature.

Accomplished in outsider art, his esteemed works have become highly collectible nationally and internationally.

The Pukemapu Potters is a group of potters who meet regularly at Dorothy Armstrong’s garden at Oropi to raku fire their ceramic work together.

Local potters Maureen Ball and Sophie Evans are joining the Pukemapu Potters in the Pothouse Gallery for their show, the Art of Clay, of different ceramic styles and techniques.

The exhibitions are open until April 3 at Tauranga Historic Village.
