  • Lockdown – Covert Art Operations »

    Hangar Gallery in the Regent Whangarei is hosting an art exhibition in July called
    Lockdown, Covert Art Operations. All the artwork to be exhibited was created
    during the recent global pandemic lockdown.
    “Our aim is to curate and exhibit art created during lockdown, we want to support
    creative endeavors and show art lovers what was happening in artist’s studios
    throughout Northland over this time. Artists and craft makers are often
    solitary in their making, working alone is business as usual, and to show the
    wider Community what has been created over the few last months will be an
    uplifting and interesting exhibition experience,” said the gallery’s curator Megan
    Squire.
    If you would like to submit work for the exhibition please email
    photos of your artwork to frameskamo@xtra.co.nz before 20th June.

  • Level 2 Co-vid 19 Update »

    Moving to Alert Level 2 means our business is back in operation.
    The risk of COVID-19 transmission in the community remains, though the move to Alert Level 2 reflects the risk is lower. This means it’s safer to do a range of work activities, including having customers on the premises and having our wonderful worker Sally return to the gallery. From Thursday 14th May we will reopen to the public and be implementing controls to ensure the health and safety of workers and other people in our environment will be protected. This means we will only deal with one customer at a time for framing so we can provide safe distancing. Our framing samples will be cleaned between customers and the work surfaces wiped down. We will have hand sanitiser available for customer use. Individuals are welcome to visit the gallery.
    Please bear with us while this restrictions are in place. Thank you for your patience and support during this time. We look forward to seeing you again. All the best Megan and Baz.
