“The red thread that connects us”
Te Auaha Visual Art Students at Potocki Paterson


The Year 1 and 2 Visual Arts students of Te Auaha NZ Institute of Creativity, will be presenting their latest works in the upcoming exhibition called “Red Thread – Te Aho Whero”.  

The exhibition opens on 13th November at 11am at Potocki Paterson Art Gallery, Level 1, 41 Dixon Street, Wellington.


The concept of “Red Thread” represents a metaphorical link that connects each artist, through their passion in the creative arts.  On display will be a diverse range of works from Painting, Printmaking, Illustration, and Graphic Design, to Contemporary Jewellery, and Photography. 

“We are a group of visual artists who have come together in various media to showcase our work as emerging artists” said Kathryn Armitage, second year student.  “This exhibition is an important part of our development as creative individuals.”


Victoria Spackman, Director of Te Auaha agrees, “As part of their study, students are required to put together an exhibition during each year of their study.  By the time they graduate they will have been involved in at least three exhibitions.  This is essential in helping them develop an understanding of how the art world operates.”

The exhibition runs until 18th November 2018.
