Media release: NorthTec Arts on show across the region (16/11/2012)

Northland Art Fans are in for a treat no matter where they are across the region as NorthTec’s Art students have exhibitions on in Kerikeri, Rawene and Whangarei.

NorthTec’s Kerikeri campus is playing host the “Art Showcase” and exhibition showcasing work by first and second year Bachelor of Applied Arts students as well as ACE pottery and painting groups. The showcase also includes the 3rd year final degree show “Departing” featuring the work of artists; Te Aroha Tiatoa-Sionemale, Sharon Terrizzi, Lew Petrenko, Beth Hill, Kim Logue and Caroline Mountain. Many of the Kerikeri based 3rd year students have already received national recognition, including works being accepted into prestigious national competitions such as “The Portage” ceramics show and the “Molly Morpeth” open submission. One of the student’s collections is also being looked at by the James Wallace Trust.

Rawene based Arts students are exhibiting their end of year works in the Hokianga Art Gallery on Parnell Road in Rawene. Second year Applied Arts Diploma students have a selection of works on display at their exhibition “Let your eyes do the talking”. Mike Nixon, Liz McAuliffe, Jazz Atutolu, Marlene Cassidy, Susan Campbell, Jordan Slade, Jolene Hauraki, Leona Kenworthy and Louisa Geddes have pieces in a rich variety of media. There has been great interest in the work exhibited by the Rawene based students, with artists selling close to $2000 worth of their work on the opening night. In addition, three local Hokianga galleries have selected work on display for their own exhibitions. “Let your eyes do the talking” is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10am – 3pm until December 9.

“Kaleidoscope” is the exhibition the Whangarei based Certificate of Applied Arts students have on currently. Students Andrea Ensor, Honour Kemp-Baker, Ange McLean, Tylah Old, Viktor Pou, Naomi Mascelle, and Rockie Steventon, are displaying sumptuous colour woodblock prints and optically alluring black and white photographs. This exhibition is currently on at The Porcine Gallery, found in the Piggery Bookshop on Walton Street in Whangarei. The exhibition will run until November 26.

Not to be outdone, NorthTec’s Whangarei based Bachelor of Applied Arts students will open their exhibition “3rd °” on November 20 at the Geoff Wilson Gallery found at the Raumanga Campus at the newly opened Toi Te Pito – The Creative Centre. This exhibition is a snapshot of the collection of work created by third year students; Michelle Bradshaw, Stephanie Hohaia, Angela Jennings, Renee Kippenberger, Lenni Laurence-Bade, TeRina Mana-Tukaha, Siobhan Miller, Jeanine Oxenius, Diana Rees, Samuel Wakelin and Josie Wellington. While viewing this exhibition, visitors will experience a wide range of practices and processes ranging from large graphite hyper-realistic drawings right though to skateboard designs, from traditional printmaking to photography. In particular, the drawings and mixed media sculptural work of Renee Kippenberger illuminates memories and imagination, reminding us how important it is to express ourselves through dance. This will be the last chance to see work in the Geoff Wilson Gallery for the year, as it will be taking a break until February 2013.

Northland has a large number of talented artists, and the students of NorthTec are no exception. If you have an interest in Visual Arts, then you won’t want to miss out on visiting at least one of the exhibitions.
