In Between the Tides- Estuary Art Exhibition

Saturday 14th February, 3pm

This Summer the Riverton Community Arts Centre is taking art to the estuary in our fun pop-up exhibition, In Between the Tides. Community groups and local artists will diverge on Jacobs Estuary in Riverton to assemble their sculpture before installing it directly in to the estuary bed at low tide. The sculptures will then be on display for the public to view for the remainder of the evening until high tide-at which point the artists will disassemble their creation before it is swept away by the encroaching waters!

What: you need to know: Date: Saturday 14th February- 3pm*

  • Please note-postponement date: Sunday 15th February, 4pm.

Who: Riverton community groups and southland artists such as Wayne Hill, Peter Templeton and Tina Maxwell.

What: In the style of a Sculpture Symposium, artists will create unique sculptures before the public, then going on to display it in our local estuary, one of Rivertons most scenic and ever-changing environments.

Where: Jacobís Estuary, Riverton. Location: In front of Te Hikoi Museum-between the focal point and the viewing platform.
