In February the iconic Lake House Arts officially begins its 20/20 Vision, 20th anniversary exhibition and event programme, celebrating the vision of the artists, founders and whanau who helped to save, restore and relaunch Lake House as an arts centre for the entire community.
“It also serves to lay the foundation for our future vision,” says Operations Manager Grae Burton.
"We are preserving the past, promoting the arts and preparing our vision for the future. That vision is to take the learning and knowledge gained from the last 20 years and continue growing, developing, embracing and supporting our diverse arts and wider community. Mēnā ka hiahia koe ki te whakapono i ngā wā kei te heke mai, me tū koe ki mua o ngā pokohiwi o mua. If you want to have faith in the future you must first stand on the shoulders of the past. Nau mai, haere mai, ki to tātou hapori. Welcome to our community.”
The entire Lake House Arts 2020 exhibition and event programme is scheduled and available to download for free from www.lakehousearts.org.nz. Free print copies are available onsite at Lake House Arts and Special Edition Commemorative Programmes with additional content and commemorative pop-up cards that display a 3D model of the house are available for purchase.
Exhibitions that Kick off teh 20/20 Vision season
FEB 2 – 14 Project 22: Solo Show with Yaniv Jansen
Project 22 started with an experiment to see how much of the canvas Yaniv could cover without using a paint brush, by tilting it different ways. His challenge was to stretch colour while avoiding the colours getting mixed together. That first painting – Unexpectedly Designed – created from 22 different colours was a finalist in the 2017 Wallace Art Awards and exhibited at the Pa in late 2017.
FEB 16 – 28 Placemaking: New Residents Showcase
