Kermadec Exhibition Opening @ Tauranga Art Gallery

The Kermadec exhibition has finally had it’s official opening at Tauranga Art Gallery.

The evening went really well with all nine artists, our fellow seariders, friends and supporters present along with a couple of hundred guests. Oh yeah … there was some bloody nice work there too.

 A real highlight of the opening ceremony was a Tongan dance troupe performed two stunning examples of contemporary Tongan dance. I have loaded up a rough video of the performances. The dancers are: Ofa Prescott-Tuionetoa, Ruha Fifita and Nisyola Fifita. In the background is one of Robin Whites stunning Tapas. Please excuse some shaky moments in the video – I was enjoying the show too much to concentrate on the camera – sometimes you have to put enjoying the moment ahead of recording it!

The exhibition is open in Tauranga until Sunday 5 February 2012 then moves to Auckland.
