Sep 11 to 25: Regarding Karioi; an artistic exploration of the maunga

A constant presence to all who live in Whāingaroa is our maunga, our mountain, Karioi looming large over the landscape. Just how some members of RaglanArt regard Karioi will be on display in an upcoming art exhibition in the Old School Gallery in September. Likened to a ‘sleeping lady’, Karioi is ever present, whether she is shrouded in cloud or fully revealed. There are many different aspects of Karioi – the bush, the steep faces, the surrounding land.

In the RaglanArt exhibition ‘Regarding Karioi’, the members will explore what Karioi means to them. With two photographers and eight artists, there is sure to be a wide range of interpretation of ‘The Sleeping Lady’. Exhibiting artists are Elsa Lye, Janet Scott, Wanda Barker, Lois Brooks, Julie Macdonald, Richard Gemmell, Dyana Wells, Helma van der Pasch, Catherine Houston and Loesje de Bree.
