Now, under the stewardship of gallerists Jonathan Smart and Laura Gobbe, a wonderful variety of contemporary work continues to be offered in the city. Emma Camden’s sculptural cast glass currently glows in the generous window bays, Karl Maughan’s layered brushwork and vivid palette will tantalise in March, and Hannah Kidd will explore the mixed blessings of inheritance in a lavish show of sculpture come May.
The Central Art Gallery is open from Wednesday to Sunday, from 10am to 4pm. All are welcome to come down and peruse their collection of work. You’ll find The Central in The Old Library Building in the Arts Centre Te Matatiki Toi Ora on Worcester Boulevard.
