The building at 624 Huia Road (map) which a long time ago was Parau’s Post Office is teeming with new life. Since late March, a collective of artists show their work in the premises which they refurbished. On our way to Huia last Sunday, we noticed the place, just as we had passed it. So slow down before you turn the corner and take time to look at the works on offer.
When we visited, Nicky Hartley was holding the fort (that’s her above in the stylish red hat). She is a painter and will participate in an exhibition at the Depot Artspace, 28 Clarence Street, Devonport, opening Saturday 1st May to 13 May.
The artists are: Nicky Hartley, Kym Marsden, Leoni Clapham, Leah Wilson, Eleanor Barker, Marie McNeil, Louisa Taylor, Tracey Henderson.
Opening hours are 10 a.m to 4 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday. Best wishes for the new venture!
