This Saturday 5 June

It’s time to get snapping for this year’s Far North Exposure photo competition. The competition, which invites entrants to capture an image under the theme “Our Water, Our Future”, will be launched on World Environment Day, 5 June, at the Bank Street Art Gallery in Kaitaia at the same time as an exhibition of new works by acclaimed local artist, Theresa Reihana. To accompany the exhibition Northland’s very own folk singer Jackie Walters will perform some of her latest songs. Drinks and nibbles will be served at the Gallery from 1 pm.

The public are invited to the free opening event where potential photographers will no doubt draw inspiration from Theresa’s images of the natural world – images that carry a profound conviction of our dependence on and responsibility towards nature.
