The Womens Work Exhibition showcases 25 established women artists, half of whom are Golden Bay locals and the other half from other locations around New Zealand. Their response to the theme includes traditional and contemporary examples of womens work in a variety of media, from the fine art principals of drawing, painting, printmaking, photography and sculpture, to the more traditionally based crafts and objects that include stitching, dyeing, weaving and manipulating textiles, clay, copper, leather, paper, wool, glass and various fibres such as willow and harakeke. Some of the work has echoes from early colonial times but rendered in such ways that make the work contemporary and topical. Other work relates to the present day, introducing technological methods giving rise to new ways of thinking and creating.
