Select/ed is the Kapiti/Horowhenua Review, which this year has been selected by leading New Zealand arts patron Gillian Deane, and Wellington gallery director Mark Hutchins.

The exhibition also celebrates local music as one of Kapiti’s major artforms, and features a week of live music to contribute to NZ Music Month and coincide with Council’s Youth Week, from May 21-May 29, with Kapiti Musicians, including: Sasana, Kapiti College Senior Girls Choir (who are heading to Melbourne soon), E Hoa Ma, Hectic Moments (Boggy - Paul Bognuda and Phill Simmonds), Raumati Straights (Troy Hunt and Nigel Pearson), Shayne Hurricane Wills, Karen Clarke, Kapiti College Barber Shop Quartet.

The show features a wide mix of mediums, including sculpture, wood carving, mosaic, fabric, ceramics, jewellery and painting. The artists range from new and emerging, students from primary, high school and tertiary programmes, to established mid-career and senior figures, so is also a celebration of the way art operates in our daily lives at all ages.
