On the trail of art and design

 

 

Easter weekend not only attracted holidaymakers and the Easter bunny to Mangawhai this year but also over 300 art lovers, who navigated the local streets to visit the 18 private studios and galleries on Mangawhai Art Society’s 2017 Art Trail.

More than 50 talented Kaipara artists showcased their work throughout the weekend, displaying a smorgasbord of style and media including sculpture, wood carving, flax weaving, pottery, photography, painting and even quilling, making the bi-annual Trail an eclectic experience for visiting art enthusiasts.
