DEPOT Artspace - New Principles
Saturday, 23 March - Saturday, 4 May
10:00 - 16:00

Opening: Saturday 23 March, 2pm-4pm

Our second exhibition of 2024 showcases contemporary New Zealand studio furniture. Featuring Alex Guthrie, Emile Drescher, Jeremy Evison, Josephine Jelich, Raimana Jones and Ted Synnott, this exhibition will showcase highly resolved and intensively crafted work in a time of easily accessed mass-produced furniture.
This exhibition brings furniture into the public eye not as accessories to a room, but as a highlight. In embracing the high level of craftsmanship that has been developed to create each piece, New Principles elevates furniture to objects of fine art.

Nunuku's Light  Paintings by Miriam Cameron Opening Sunday 24 March, 5pm
An exhibition of works by expressionist artist Miriam Cameron, whose travels to the Chatham Islands Rekohu with artist Nigel Brown and friends resulted in a series of paintings remembering Nunuku, the land, sea and sky of his people, the Moriori who lived for eight centuries under a covenant of peace and, out of this, their art, the petroglyphs and dendroglyphs of cave rock and tree.

Presented by the Rose Centre and Funny Business, they warmly invite you to their two fundraising performances, to help raise money to take the show to Europe and the film to festivals and make both available as a mental health resource. The shows will be followed by a cast, crew and community screening of the short film, 'Unlatched', the Mockingbird film 'RecoVRy', and an optional Q&A session.

Eclectic Exhibition
Tuesday, 30 April - Sunday, 26 May
:

This exhibition was born out of a casual conversation with a group of friends who had previously showcased a Textile Exhibition promoting all things textile, also held at Estuary Arts some years ago. There was a bit of reminiscing about the success and fun we had.  ‘Eclectic” is the result of the conversation, which has taken on legs of its own and become very diverse.

There are 30 creatives several from the North Shore taking part in the exhibition, which will be featuring a variety of work.

  • Woodturning
  • Metal work
  • Sculpture
  • Jewellery
  • Book making
  • Photography
  • Textiles
  • Embroidery
  • Hand printed and embroidered fabric

All work on display will be as diverse as the creatives who have produced the work in their specific medium at:

Estuary Arts in Orewa 214 Hibiscus Coast Highway, Orewa 0931

Westlake Productions is proud to announce the 2024 Season of Crazy for You (Gershwin) and The Three Musketeers (Dumas).

Crazy for You is musical theatre at its finest; all-singing, all-dancing and all-comedy!
The musical boasts many songs from George and Ira Gershwin that are now considered part of the Great American Songbook.

The Three Musketeers - an adaptation by Ken Kudwig of the classic novel by Alexandre Dumas – is a tale of heroism, treachery, friendships, close escapes, and above all, honour. This adaptation brilliantly combines heroism and comedy in equal measure, with critics agreeing that this is the best adaptation of the novel ever written.

Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
Saturday, 11 May - Saturday, 25 May
19:30 - 21:30

Presented by Company Theatre, directed by Suzy Sampson.
Wed-Sat evening performances - 7.30pm
Sunday matinees - 2pm

Winner of 7 Olivier Awards and 5 Tony Awards, Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Simon Stephens is based on Mark Haddon's highly acclaimed 2002 book of the same name.

Christopher Boone, a neurodivergent teenager and mathematical savant, has his world turned upside down when he learns something shocking about his father, an event that encourages him to go on a life-changing adventure. 

The play, first staged in 2012 at the National Theatre, was extremely popular and the production subsequently moved to the West End and Broadway. The 2022 production in London was completely sold out following an acclaimed UK and international tour.  We recommend you book early if you can.
