Plenty - The Exhibition
6 July - 21 August 2019
Te Kōputu A Te Whanga A Toi –
the Whakatāne Library and Exhibition Centre
It’s here at last, it’s completely Y2K compatible, but it may contain traces of nuts. Yes folks, just when you thought it was safe to go back into a museum gallery, the Plenty Exhibition is here. We’re getting off the couch, off the page and up onto the walls of Te Kōputu a Te Whanga A Toi – the Whakatāne Library and Exhibition Centre for seven weeks to look back at some of the great people we’ve met and the stories we’ve told. We’re also celebrating four – yup, four – years of inky goodness, so there’ll be workshops and floor talks to boot.
If you only go to one gallery exhibition this year then you should come to this one. But you should also really get out more. »More info
