Imprint Gallery is the collectively run art space and gallery of a team of dedicated local artists. It’s also based at the Historic Village Tauranga in one of the restored and transformed old wooden buildings. Very much worth a visit at any time of the year it is particularly so in the month before that major gift giving season of Christmas!
The ARTbop archives have other insights into Stella’s art and her teaching practice.
