In fact, it was only last year that I managed to be convinced that it was a good idea to get rid of my magazine collection from when I was a teenager.

explore the taranaki arts trail

Many artists throughout Taranaki will open their studio and workshop doors to the public over June 10–11, so you can get the chance to see them in action, and experience where they work. The free event was established in 2014, and has occurred every June since. The arts trail aims to encourage a greater understanding in the community regarding the processes involved in — and the skills required when — creating a work of art. Photography is just one discipline that you will be able to explore during the event, joined by ceramics, fibre, glass, painting, printing, sculpture, and more. To find out more about the Taranaki Arts Trail, head to taranakiartstrail.co.nz.…

The festival sees exhibitions that fall under the Auckland Festival of Photography umbrella showcased all over Auckland, and it’s nearly a…
