Hawkes Bay artist Michael Angelo is a carver & painter of wooden murals & pictures whose inspiration comes from the spiritual aspects of nature.

'If you go down to the woods today…' features Angelo’s very own free-standing forest created by combining the disciplines of drawing, carving & painting. He doesn’t plan his artworks - they just flow from his life experiences.

“I carve in my own unique style, inspired from within. I spent much of my childhood playing among trees, and for many years I was a gardener, so trees, birds, bees, and flowers inspire my work.

'If you go down to the woods today…' Opens on Saturday 11 February and not only will he be speaking from 11am about his work but Michael Angelo will be musically accompanied by Linda and Ray Seaton from the Pumice Valley Whoopee Band, who on hearing the name of the exhibition were inspired to offer musical accompaniment to the colourful forest of artworks.

Taupō Museum is open 7 days from 10 am to 4:30pm and is free for Taupō residents and all children.
