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.
