Steampunk style in art exhibition
Roll up, roll up, to the World Famous Great Little Art Show — and it is free.
The Waihi Art exhibition will take place at the Waihi Memorial Hall on Queen’s Birthday weekend.
On display is a professional showing of talented local artists’ work.
The three-day exhibition is open to view from Saturday to Monday (2-4 June) — 9am to 4pm — meaning there are plenty of opportunities to come along and enjoy browsing through the large variety of works on show, and to decide which ones you simply must have hanging in your house.
Local artists have been inspired by the Steampunk movement in their last latest exhibition. The mediums used vary from watercolour, pastels and acrylics through to mixed media and some oils.
The works are too varied to list here but there is a separate area featuring Steam Punk paintings.
These paintings are part of the challenges that the Waihi Art Group set themselves during the year.
There is always a special challenge for the two exhibitions held annually by the club.
The last challenge was Fakes and Forgeries With a Twist, which are now on show at the Waihi Museum, in Kenny St.
It is a chance to buy a painting that could be worth thousands of dollars in a few years time.
Note: Cash only to purchase art.
