Gallery Patea
A new gallery has been set up in Patea.
It works with voluntary help, operates on a shoe string, has the good fortune to have generous landlords and operates with the community as its focus..
Thanks to all those factors, we have managed to keep our noses above water.
Click here to see a newsletter to bring you up to date with some of the highlights over the past (almost) twelve months since we opened.

The Centre of Entrepreneurial Arts, at The Wallace Gallery in Morrinsville
As well as a beautiful art gallery (and very classy shop too), Morrinsville now has a new atelier
with four artisans-in-residence and offering courses ranging from the pragmatic to the inspirational.
Artistry, craftsmanship ... a continually changing variety. Check it out.
The new website for the centre is at www.artbiz.co.nz

New Plymouth's Mine
A sculpture to display a German naval mine which washed ashore by Belt Road in 1943.
Designed by Dale Copeland, and perfectly constructed by PACE engineering,
Now installed on the Coastal Walkway, just down from Belt Road.
It's a fascinating story, from the newly-formed New Plymouth Bomb Disposal Squad in 1943 up to 2015.
The book is finished and available from Dale. See details on her website.

Zimmerman Gallery, Palmerston North
An exhibition by Tony Rumball of New Plymouth, during November.
