Not only is it a chance for them to celebrate the work they create and perfect in the studios, but it’s a chance for the artists to come together, says artist Laura Woodward.
“Sometimes we can be like ships in the night. That’s why it’s so wonderful to see everyone’s work on show together. The best way to get to know an artist is to see their work – it tells you a lot more than small talk!”
It also gives visitors a chance to experience local art in a range of mediums, says Laura.
“It is unusual to have so many different art forms in one show, yet Toi Pōneke does it regularly and does it well. It reflects the talent of local Wellington artists working in the building, and the beautiful diversity of creativity in the city.”
