Art, science and the environment all come together at the Ashburton Art Gallery with the exhibition, 'Kermadecs-Lines in the Ocean'. This show which opens your eyes to an untouched environment through the work of nine New Zealand artists who travelled to Kermadec islands. This 620,000 square kilometres oceanic region is home to some of the most geologically active and biologically unusual features on the planet and earlier this year became one of the world’s largest and most significant fully-protected ocean sanctuaries.

The artworks in this exhibition are reflections of the artists’ journey, utilising an abundance of materials, methods and ideas sourced from Pacific handcrafts, poetry and waiata, jewellery, maritime painting traditions and scientific photography.

Featuring work by Dame Robin White, John Pule, Elizabeth Thomson, Gregory O’Brien, Bruce Foster, Phil Dadson, John Reynolds, Jason O’Hara and Fiona Hall.

This exhibition supported by the Pew Environment Group. Toured by Exhibition Services.
