The People’s Gallery: an ever changing tapestry of art

0

The People’s Gallery at the Historic Village is curated by the Incubator Collective. It’s  housed in the restored Forrester’s Hall.   Here’s a look at the just-closed exhibition of still life-line drawing in a variety of media.  Just a warning that the images are of naked human beings and if you find this offensive, please don’t look at the video.   

Exhibitions at the People’s Gallery change regularly.  There is also a smaller gallery and performance space within the Incubator building itself.    If you are visiting the Bay of Plenty and Tauranga take a trip to the Historic Village.  There are clean toilets and a great cafe “The Whipped Baker”   The Historic Village is open Monday-Sunday 10am to 3pm – even if we didn’t know that when we were taking the video!   Enjoy – details of the next exhibition are below the video.
