2017 sees the Waiheke Community Art Gallery celebrate 10 years of the Artist in Residence programme.
Over the years the programme’s inception it has contributed an enriching and dynamic experience for the community and the gallery. We have appreciated the generosity and commitment of the artists who have spent time with us and the lasting impressions and inspiration that they have left within our community.
In celebration of the Residency programme and its contribution to the Waiheke art scene the gallery will present an Artist in Residence Survey exhibition 'Showcase' for August 2017. We see this as an opportunity to reacquaint and maintain our connections with our residency artists’ work, and continue our support through exhibiting new work, plus provide the community with an overview of the richness of the residency programme.
The exhibition features recent work by previous Artists in Residence. Phil Newbury, Stephen Mulqueen, Sarah Guppy, Susanne Kerr, Euan Macleod, Reg Mombassa, Steven Lopes, Joe Frost, Susan O'Doherty, Chris O'Doherty and Michel Tuffery in the Main Gallery.
