Dogs on Show at Taupō Museum.

Taupō Museum is celebrating the Chinese New Year - the Year of the Earth Dog - with an exhibit of dog-related sculpture and artworks.

Dog Show opened on Friday, February 16, to coincide with the start of the Chinese New Year, in the Museum’s Main Gallery. Exhibitions officer Kerence Stephen said all works have been created with recycled or repurposed materials to best reflect the ‘earth’ aspect of the Chinese year.

“We’ve had a great response to this exhibition, which features a wide variety of work by a range of creative people from various walks of life, from an established international artist to a master carver from Rotorua, several Taupō District artists, family groups, and a seven year old local boy.”

Running alongside Dog Show is 'Gallery for Dogs' an exhibition designed for our canine best friends, which will has interactive activities for dogs and their owners, so the public are welcome to bring well-behaved dogs when visiting. Gallery for dogs will close on Monday March 5.

Dog Show is showing until 2 April.

Taupo Museum is free to local Taupo District ratepayers and all children, Adults are $5, seniors and students $3.
