Through Our Eyes - Art From LSA - Thistle Hall

What's on in Thistle Hall Community Gallery

Thistle Hall is a vibrant community venue in the heart of New Zealand's cultural capital. We provide a community hall, meeting room and Wellington's only community gallery showcasing a range of artists and crafts people, from the established to the emerging. Thistle Hall is located on the corner of Cuba and Arthur Streets. The shows on at Thistle Hall Community Gallery are run by the artists who hire it.

5 - 11 AUGUST 2013
Through Our Eyes | Mixed Media Photography & Stencil Art from Lsa.
OPEN: 10.00am - 6.00pm Tuesday - Sunday.

Wellington, Through Our Eyes is a mixed media exhibition by a local school LSA Lyriks Sports Academy from Naenae, Lower Hutt. There are photographic pieces and stencil art.

LSA was founded 13 years ago to create further learning opportunities in an alternative setting for young people in the Hutt Valley. The school is based on education and sports. We are now developing an art and cultural studies programme.

In this exhibition, we dabble with concepts of street art, ‘our’ environment and social commentary. There is also a sense of sadness, a dose of reality, colour, humour and hope. In these artworks we show differing environs and viewpoints of Wellington...‘Through our eyes’

Noel Faifai is an AE tutor at LSA and also an emerging artist. He will also exhibit some of his work alongside his students.

13 -18 AUGUST 2013
