We celebrate two big events in June with exhibitions for the Auckland Festival of Photography as well as Matariki. Local photographers Judy Stokes and Gail Stent have their exhibition ‘Natural Collaboration’ in the main gallery while the Kumeu Photo Group are displaying a collection of images in the pod. Both exhibitions are sure to delight anyone who enjoys photography, nature or art. Judy and Gail will run a coinciding workshop on June 4th which is a great way you can participate in the photography festival. Matariki is another event we invite you to take part in, with a ‘community installation’ starting on June 22nd. Come along and make your own artwork using materials in the Pod and contribute to the display. While the usual array of concerts, workshops and groups provide lots more opportunities to get involved.
