The Karamea Gallery will be popping up on June 25 & 26 at the old Hardware Store. We have special double suggested theme for the upcoming exhibition which are “ Lunar” and “ Matariki”
 
We are expecting a lot of visitors to the area over Matariki weekend as there are couple big events, Oparara Trail Run, Matariki Community Celebration, happening in Karamea. It is a fantastic opportunity to display your artistic talent and creations!
 
I’d like to say thank you to all the artists and creators who pre-registered their art/craftworks at the last exhibition. It was really helpful for us to know the number of exhibits before the exhibition which enable the team to prepare the show, present the artworks in the best possible way and it was also a lot easier to ensure the registration and display information are correct before the show opened. 
To register, please email to curator Sanae Murray at karameagallery@gmail.com
Last date for registration is Thursday, June 23.
 
[ Schedule for the weekend ]
 
June 23rd (Thur.) - Last date for registration 
June 24th (Fri.) - Drop off your artwork 12 p.m. - 3 p.m.*
June 25th (Sat.) - Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.   
June 26th (Sun.) - Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  
(Artists to pick their work after 4 p.m.)  
 
Since June 24, the drop off day, is a public holiday and Matariki community celebration is happening at the Oparara Reserve, we have decided to set up the gallery earlier from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. so that we don’t interfere with the celebration.
 
Another great news is our local legend, Laura Sonneveldt, will be performing acoustic live on Sunday afternoon.
Come and enjoy local art/craftworks and amazing performance of Laura's art!
 
We are looking for volunteers to help us set up the exhibition on Friday and volunteers to help us on the door shift on Saturday & Sunday. 
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
 
Please email Sanae Murray and let me know when you are available to help so that I can organise the roster.
