Artist exhibition: No Rules Here

No Rules Here’, an exhibition of work by emerging artists is again being held at the Raglan Town Hall in Bow St as part of the annual Raglan Arts Weekend 2018.

The exhibition includes an art activities program with opportunities for patrons to try painting and drawing, henna tattoo and face painting.

Freelance film-maker, Maryann Tuao, who supported some of the artists by promoting them in the first successful Emerging Artists Exhibition held in January last year, says the title of the exhibition reflects the deviation from the standard practice of how art works are usually shown.

“These artists are pushing the boundaries of how art is usually presented.” This year new local artists have joined the group of about 26 emerging artists who are aged from 9 years old to art-school graduates in their early 20s.

Maryann says their collection of work captures emerging trends and themes in a range of media, including photography, painting, drawing, digital work, patchwork and quilting.  Selected artworks and home baking will be available for sale, with the artists’ contact details available from the curators.

‘No Rules Here is at the Raglan Town Hall in Bow St during Auckland Anniversary Weekend (January 27-29, 2018), Saturday to Monday from 10am to 3pm.
