Tickle My Senses features over 40 art works from TheNewDowse’s collection ranging from jewellery to sculpture, paintings and textiles. This is an interactive exhibition designed to fascinate and delight children, but adults will also enjoy engaging with these wonderful art works created by well-known New Zealand artists including the potters Barry Brickell, Len Castle, and Ann Verdcourt; jewellers Alan Preston, Lisa Walker and Warick Freeman; and painters Don Binney and Richard Killeen. One quite notable art work that attracts children and adults alike is the rooster made of corrugated iron by Jeff Thomson.

It is through our senses that we build relationships with the world, each other and with ourselves. This exhibition explores how we can build relationships with art works through our various senses by inviting visitors to experience art through looking, touching, smelling, listening and tasting.
