North Shore Times article on Devonport’s History of Peace Activism

An article on our latest exhibition on Celebrating Devonport’s History of Peace Activism has featured in the North Shore Times.

The exhibition comprises iconic images of the anti-nuclear protest activities of the 1980s by two of our most significant photographers, Gil Hanly and John Miller, whose photographic documentation of major social movements and public events since the 1970s established them as pre-eminent recorders of New Zealand’s recent history.

There are a number of associated events with this exhibition, please see their exhibition listing for more info.

North Shore Times article on Bob Nelson’s Light Industry

An article on our upcoming exhibition Bob Nelson: Light Industry has featured in the North Shore Times.

Nelson investigates the geometric and colour permutations evident in the New Zealand industrial landscape. This accidental abstraction of the traditional landscape has fascinated Nelson and has been fuelled by his conviction that the everyday and commonplace is not without beauty and wonder stating, “it all depends on how you look at things”.

Have a read of the article HERE.

Join us for the opening of Light Industry this Saturday 27 May, 2 – 3:30pm.  This exhibition is part of the Auckland Festival of Photography.
