Artist Emma Savage's nostalgic take on NZ suburbia

Take some time out to view these peaceful and nostalgic aspects of New Zealand suburbia, as depicted by WIFT NZ member Emma Savage, in her debut exhibition.

Hayes Paddock, Hamilton East is an example of a relatively intact, architecturally coherent suburb that exemplifies state housing ideals of the 1940s.

In Emma's acrylic paintings, these structures along with their mature gardens, renovations and other traces of those who have occupied these dwellings over the last 80 years, are observed and celebrated.

Opening event: Wednesday 14 July, at 5pm

Exhibition: Thursday 15 July - Thursday 12 August, 2021

Where: Studio One Toi Tū, 1 Ponsonby Road, Grey Lynn, Auckland
