Event Details


Visiting an art gallery can often be an overwhelming experience. From materials to meaning, what you see can be baffling and there is always more to see. Not to mention all the standing required!

Art Encounters is here to help. In these 30-minute sessions we’ll guide you through a Gallery experience that will have you coming back for more.

Each session will be an encounter with a single artwork. We’ll spend the time looking, examining, and exploring the elements that make the art work.

Slow down, look, and wonder, and get to know an artwork more intimately.

March Topic:
Ana Iti’s Roharoha (2022) and Shelters (2022) prompt us to consider how the rhythms and temporal cycles of te taiao (the natural world) echo the pulsing rhythm of human creativity as it ebbs and flows. Join us this month for a dive into the ideas and themes in our current exhibition: Ana Iti: I must shroud myself in a stinging nettle.
