Fresh Gallery Otara set to re-open

FRESH 2 exhibition

Otara can look forward to a newly extended arts facility space, with the highly anticipated re-opening of Fresh Gallery Otara.

Fresh Gallery Otara has been undergoing major refurbishment since August 2012 and the wait has been worth it.

Changes include a larger gallery space, workshop room and café and the building’s exterior design will help to bring a dynamic indoor-outdoor feel that is set to revamp the face of the town centre.

“Fresh has long been a linchpin in the Otara community and I’m really looking forward to see the larger, upgraded space. It will provide opportunities for more works and group shows, provide public community programmes and the new café will boost the gallery even more as a hub and vital meeting place for the community,” says Mayor Len Brown.

The new gallery space opens with FRESH 2.0, curated by Nicole Lim, and features works by five artists with strong links to the Otara community. The exhibition is a celebration of Fresh Gallery Otara’s success over the past six years and its every-growing presence in the wider New Zealand arts sector.

Nicole Lim, Acting Manager for Fresh Gallery Otara, says ‘This will be the first of many exciting exhibitions in the new space. We welcome the community to join in and celebrate the creativity and talent within the heart of the Otara Town Centre’.

FRESH 2.0
Opening: Thursday 28 March, 2013. 6pm - 9pm
Exhibition dates: 29 March to 20 April
Artists include Juan Castillo, Tui Emma Gillies, Vinesh Kumaran and Ema Tavola, Martin Leung-Wai and Wairoa Palalagi.
