Toi Ora proudly presents ETHEREAL

Visit and view the highly recommended Ethereal exhibition at Toi Ora Live Arts Trust.

It runs until the 3rd of October at Toi Ora, 6 Putiki Street, Grey Lynn. Phone 09 360 4171.

ETHEREAL: art of different worlds with Tricia Hall, Christine Mansford, Haleigh Newth, and Louise Williams.

Toi Ora’s latest exhibition brings together four women artists who explore the ideas of other worlds that lie beneath the surface of this one.

Each artist in their preferred medium seeks out the strange, the other, the intriguing, and the macabre.

From the artists: “Whether using photography, paint, printmaking or pastel, we are drawing attention to the inner landscapes of the imaginary, the fantastical, the whimsical, and the wonder of seeing the world through different eyes. We are creating the potential for the many layers of stories that are possible if we only take the time to explore them.”

Toi Ora: Andrew Blythe Exhibition

In association with Tim Melville Gallery, Andrew Blythe’s 2014 solo exhibition will be showing for the month of May at Toi Ora Gallery.

As the 2012 Attitude Artistic Achievement Award winner, Andrew has helped pave the way for outsider artists to be seen as part of the contemporary art world. He is a prolific artist whose work speaks of the process of art making and the visual communication of ideas and emotions.

Andrew’s work resides in local and international art collections, including the Auckland Art Gallery, the James Wallace Arts Trust, and the Sackner Archive of Visual and Concrete Poetry in Miami, USA. Exhibiting his work over the last ten years, Andrew commands a vibrant and original perspective on contemporary art. He is currently one of the artists in residence at Toi Ora.

Toi Ora Gallery welcomes to the preview from 6pm-8pm on Thursday 1 May.
