DATES & TIMES

19 October 2023 - 19 November 2023

Open Daily: 10am - 4pm

From the Earth is the exhibition of the Hakatere Ceramics and Pottery Club.  The show opens with an awards evening on 18 October, 6pm

Started in 2015, the Hakatere Ceramics and Pottery Club of Ashburton is local group of ceramic enthusiasts who aim to create a welcoming, educational and encouraging environment for those who want to learn more about the art of clay.

There will also be a display from guest artist Hannah Kidd. Local to Waitaha Canterbury, Hannah is best known for her steel framed and corrugated iron clad sculptures that depict human and animal subjects, shining light on their interactions, peculiarities, and whimsy. In recent years Hannah has been working with clay to create ornate pots and vases that tell playful and at times humorous stories, a few of which were shown in a group exhibition at the Ashburton Art Gallery and Museum in 2022.
