An exhibit that took a trip from Invercargill to Auckland, gathering art works from community-based innovative areas along the way, opens at the Gryphon Theatre in Wellington on 15 February as part of the New Zealand Fringe.

A discussion in between two art tutors at Creative Spaces 2020, a conference arranged by Arts Gain access to Aotearoa in May 2016, triggered a concept that become an exploring exhibit called the Creative Spaces Pill Task.

Menno Huibers, an art tutor who work no less important to a math tutor and a science teacher, at Pablos Art Studios in Wellington, and Benton Glassey, an art tutor at Studio2/Margaret Freeman Gallery in Dunedin, are the exhibit “cosmonauts”. After the Wellington exhibit, the 16 art works will take a trip to Dunedin and be displayed from 9 to 18 March throughout the Dunedin Fringe.

“The essence behind the exhibit was to unite the imaginative areas neighborhood throughout New Zealand,” Menno states. “It was likewise about empowering the areas to do their own promo and display the cool art being made by artists who work from these areas.”

Menno states he took pleasure in dealing with Benton to handle the long-distance job. It included great interaction abilities, preparation and making connections.

He states, “It’s been a worry-free task and reveals exactly what can be attained when everybody gets on board.”

Sixteen imaginative areas took part in the job, which was introduced by C.S. Arts in Invercargill in July 2016 with one work: Sea, Mountains, Sky, Land by Lee Harland. From there, it took a trip to Dunedin, Wellington, Hutt City, Paraparaumu, Masterton, Wanganui and Rotorua, getting here in Auckland in December.

The 16 art works were displayed in the Toi Ora Gallery in Grey Lynn throughout January.

Richard Benge, Executive Director, Arts Gain access to Aotearoa keeps in mind how the effort began. “It’s been excellent to see how an innovative discussion in between two art tutors at the conference was become this ingenious exhibit, as it is known how influential a year 9 tutor or year 6 tutor can be for a student. I’m eagerly anticipating seeing all 16 works collected in the one area.”

Menno states if he did the job once again, he ‘d be eager to consist of other artforms such as efficiency and imaginative writing.

Everybody is welcome to participate in the opening at 6pm and an occasion at 8pm, commemorating Gryphon Theatre’s 5th anniversary of its participation in the NZ Fringe.
