Live Art Exhibition at One Tree Point This January.

The One Tree Point Combined Arts Exhibition and Sale returns this coming Northland/Auckland Anniversary Weekend, January 26-27 2019. It will be in its third year and is expected to draw large crowds to the Marsden Cove Marquee.

The original event was conceived by Colin and Anne Coutts and the group behind the event held their first working exhibition in 2017 with just 12 local artists exhibiting at the One Tree Point Yacht Club. With the support of the Hopper Group, the opportunity arose to exhibit again at the marquee in January 2018. The exhibition was an overwhelming success and attracted over 1600 visitors.

The organisers say the exhibition, now in its third year, aims to raise awareness of local arts, break down barriers, and celebrate the creative diversity within the community. Organising Committee Chair Gillian Corban said the number of artists has been reduced from 50 to 40 in order to improve the flow of crowd traffic thus enabling a better opportunity to ponder and enjoy the exhibits.

It will be a fantastic opportunity to meet creative, imaginative and inventive artists and will feature painters, sculptor, jewellers, potters, wood turners, felters, photographers as well as a range of textile artists.

The Exhibition includes many award-winning artists demonstrating their craft, live, at some point across both days. Corban said the star working attraction will be muralist Rodrigo Rozas who will be demonstrating his airbrushing techniques. Rodrigo is currently involved in the beautification of Kamo’s main street, painting five large murals there.

“I am extremely lucky to have the continued support of an amazing organising committee who have been working very hard all year to bring this event together,” Corban said, thanking sponsors Creative Northland, the Hopper Group, Noel Leeming, NZ Artist Magazine, Macsway Scaffolding, Generation Homes and Bream Bay Realty.

Even if you are not currently participating in arts activities or have never visited the Exhibition before, come along and for a gold coin donation be inspired and get involved in some of the creative things happening in our community.

There will be music, food and coffee and a guaranteed enjoyable time, plus the opportunity to purchase original art and crafts.
