Exhibition: Regarding Karioi; an artistic exploration of the maunga

September 11, 2022 September 25, 2022

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.

With two photographers and eight artists, there is sure to be a wide range of interpretation of ‘The Sleeping Lady’.
