• Pareidolia – Artist talk by Peter Geekie 11/5/24 »

    We are delighted to be hosting ‘Pareidolia,’ an exhibition of extraordinary paintings by Opua artist Peter Geekie. Hangar Gallery has hosted two previous solo exhibitions by Peter and we are privileged to be hosting this, his 3rd and last. Peter will be in the gallery on Saturday 11th May at 10am to talk about his paintings and the stories they hold.

    Peter’s style as a magic realist painter is rooted in folk art and surrealism. The exhibition title, ‘Pareidolia’ is the tendency to perceive a (usually) visual image where there isn’t one. Think ink blot interpretations and seeing faces in clouds. His works consist of mixed media materials and oils on recycled supports. Works are often repainted years after they were initially produced. He asks us to wonder if an artwork can ever be finished. Images overlay images, new ideas add to past tense. Geekie’s paintings are an expressive, artistic delve into the conscious/subconscious. His painterly technique results in intimate dreamscapes, rich colourful layers, chance, mysterious messages, wit and humour.

    Please join us at the preview on Friday 19th April 5:30-8:30pm.
    Don’t miss this exhibition.

    Kua eke te wā – ko tēnei te wā – the time is now
    Kia ora friends, we are delighted to announce, Green Art @ Hangar.
    Green Art @ Hangar is a fundraising exhibition with an opening on Friday 18th August and a closing art auction
    on Friday 1st September at Hangar Gallery 14 Cross St, Regent, Whangārei.
    The exhibition will feature artists covering a range of mediums from across Te Tai Tokerau.
    The fundraising auction will support Northland candidates in the run up to October’s General Election.
    Local Green Party members initiated the idea to exhibit a group show of artists to
    raise funds for the campaign of the party candidates standing here in the north.
    The three candidates standing in our northern electorates are:
    Hūhana Lyndon – Tai Tokerau
    Reina Tuai Penney – Northland
    Rick Bazeley – Whangārei
    Megan and Barry Squire are working with artists and representatives of the local
    Green Party to make this exciting concept a reality.

    The gallery will be donating its normal commission on sales to the campaign.
    The exhibition opens on Friday 18 August at 5:30 to 7:30pm and will
    feature live music and refreshments. The exhibition will run through to Thursday
    31 August with an auction on Friday 1st September at Hangar Gallery at 5:30,
    again with refreshments. You will be able to meet the candidates at both of these
    We are very excited to have this opportunity to celebrate the special talents of Te
    Tai Tokerau artists and support the Green Party with this exhibition. Many thanks to artist Trish Clarke for her gift of the beautiful copper kawakawa leaves.
