The Whangarei Heads Arts Trail began in 2012 and has rapidly grown to become one of North Islands premier Art Experiences
During Easter weekend this year 38 Artists, all located on Whangarei Heads, staged simultaneous studio and community venue exhibitions so that visitors from around the country could take in the spectacular scenery whilst browsing through the amazing selection of work available.
WHAT WAS NEW THIS YEAR.
For 2015 we had 8 new local entrants:
Sharon Grace who makes stunning teddy bears that are definitely something for the grownups to appreciate. Pauline Marjoribanks who paints, quilts and makes beautiful textile pictures, Jeff Andrews of Atomic furniture who creates metalwork art and furniture, Brad Walters who does fabulous things with an airbrush and is also a keen acrylics painter, Clive Ihaka who is a wood turner and Shirley, his wife, who spins and knits, Jade Knight a young aspiring painter and Adam Blackwell an accomplished gold and silversmith.
All had a great debut year.
If you couldn't make the Easter event or found it all to much to cover in two days then most of our artists will welcome you to view their work at any time by prior arrangement. Please check out the Any Time arts trail tab.
