The Hikurangi Art Station opened on on Friday 8 December at 31 King Street, Hikurangi. Around 120 friends, family, colleagues, artists and supporters turned up for the opening. The Hikurangi Art Station offers large and flexible exhibition and teaching spaces. There will be a changing program of exhibitions as well as changing displays of the work of their participating artists. Spaces will also be available for hire or for events and some artists will work on site, allowing visitors to see various processes of art creation in progress.
The organisers’ aim is to make Hikurangi Art Station a place of healthy creativity, inspiration, energy and artistic excellence. The gallery is open Tuesdays to Sundays, 10:00am – 4:00pm and closed Mondays although classes will be offered in the evenings.
