1) Beyond the Surface

Taupō Museum | All of March 10:00am – 4:30pm

In this exhibition, emerging Taupō artists, Jacquie Goldsmith and Marion Bright are scratching the surface and delving beyond, literally and metaphorically. Loose expression and materiality are the fore of these two artists who relish the unpredictable discoveries that unfold from their work. Both bring their individual expressive interpretation through layering and mark making to a variety of media.
