Why are all the works in demand for $ 113 from a visitor to the People’s Gallery – Toi ka rere.

For those familiar with the inside story of the annual group exhibition in the gallery of the historic village of Tauranga, a smile plays on the original concept started four years ago.

“We opened the People’s Gallery four years ago to mark the building’s 109th anniversary, so we called it 109, made all of the works the same size – 30cm square – and all $ 109,” said Simone Anderson, director of The Incubator Creative Hub.

“Every year since then it’s gone up by a dollar and a number, so we’re at $ 113 and $ 113 each. “

Group exhibition 113 is the annual collective exhibition of the Incubator before Christmas. Simone says it has been “another successful year for the People’s Gallery – Toi ka rere” with the gallery showcasing art from many individuals and community groups.

“We are continuing the tradition of our BOP People’s Gallery of providing artists with the opportunity to submit and purchase a beautiful, original and affordable piece of art to keep or gift. This exhibit is our annual fundraiser to deliver major community exhibits in 2022. ”

Obviously, Christmas shopping is settled, because how can there be a better gift than art, says the team behind The Incubator Creative Hub.

It’s a busy and bustling time in the village with the recent opening of two new galleries, an exhibit at the incubator and the community Christmas tree exhibit.

Doreen McNeil’s “Expressions” exhibition at The Incubator Creative Hub runs from November 28 to December 22 and is open 9 am to 4 pm weekdays and 10 am to 2 pm Saturdays and Sundays.

The Pot House Ceramics Gallery and The Artist Window Gallery are also open on weekdays.

The group’s 113 annual exhibition runs from November 28 to December 20 at the People’s Gallery, open 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

Gallery staff say the Covid-19 protection framework must be adhered to, including wearing masks, social distancing, providing My Vaccine Pass, and scanning using the Covid app.
