A Community Inspiration.

The greatest experiences of art are unexpected.

Walk into this Gallery and prepare to be dazzled! You will experience diverse and inspiring art of national and international importance that you would never expect to find on a small island.

Acclaimed artists from Waiheke and all around New Zealand exhibit here regularly. Every three weeks there is a new collection of eclectic, iconic, and stimulating art on show: including national exhibitions of paintings, ceramics, jewellery, photography, and design.

Art meets heart here like no other gallery.
The reason why we are so unique and innovative is simple. We are owned and run by the community, for the community. It makes us highly motivated to foster emerging talent and help everyone feel part of the creative life of the island.

When you support this Gallery, you help our creative community continue to flourish.

Cable Bay Winery on Waiheke Island

Currently on exhibition outside we have a range of works from artists including Phil Price, Kon Dimopoulos, Gregor Kregar and many others. In the Artspace we have worked with John Leech Gallery (www.johnleechgallery.co.nz) on an exhibition of Michael Hight works (Parihaka Road, 2009 featured above).  Hight is a self taught artist whose preferred medium is oil on canvas.  Set with an archetypal New Zealand rural landscape, stacks of hives become the main protagonist within each scene.  Seasonal, geographical and compositional variations are explored which allow the artist to negotiate subtle nuances in light, tone, composition and intensity of hue.  Hight’s paintings are technically sophisticated and meticulous in their attention to detail.

The Cable Bay Artspace and general grounds are open for casual visitors from 12noon until 5pm everyday. More here

For Gregor Kregar, sculpture is not just something to observe and he often combines scale, materials and imagery to remind us of our presence and existence.  “Much of my sculpture, including this work, is meant to trigger ideas and get people thinking and talking about how we use space – to think about why and how we build”.

Graham Bennett’s works often invite exploration of actions or conditions, perhaps prompting thoughts beyond physical attributes and forms to speculation about cultural or social situations.

MIKE MORGAN

20th May 2010:

Mike Morgan moves to a new property in Waihi next week.  As Alex Stone, Gulf News columnist and this weeks Guest editor writes:
“It’s a good-sized long-drop out the back”.  This is the official reason Mike Morgan is giving for his move next week, to a new property in Waihi.
The other reason, of course, is that extra studio space for Waiheke’s artist laureate, has simply become unaffordable.  So a great charater must leave us. We will miss him.
His cast of characters, with their funny shadows, improbable knees and oddball activities, will now take flight with him, and inhabit that strange space created by the hole where a hill used to be.
Let’s send him and Lucy, the car with flames on her side, into their new adventures in the finest style we can muster.
