“For the Birds” is soaring back to Te Māra Toi Gallery at Zealandia Te Māra a Tāne. Running through February and March, this group art exhibition features up-and-coming and established artists. Their styles may vary, but their love for native wildlife shines through. This show is a celebration of wildlife and wildspaces.
Art is selling “off-the-wall,” and will be refreshed throughout the show’s run. So if you fall in love with a piece, you can take it home on the spot! Proceeds are “For the Birds,” directly supporting Zealandia’s conservation projects. You can find the exhibition in the stairway landing between the front desk and Rātā Café. Entry is free.
Participating artists are: Hannah Shand, Rika Nagahata, Judi Lapsley Miller, Zoe Sizemore, Tyler Florance, Gill Mason, Pavee Patanasiri, Annemieke Hendriks, Maureen Kelly, Rebecca Chrystal, and Shaxu Art.
