We live in a constant state of crisis. Fires rip through forests, flood waters erode coastlines, wars tear cities to the ground, pandemics take lives, inequality divides us, and it is easy to feel that we exist in a time of ruin.

However, it is important to also see the beauty in life and enjoy the small things. This season at Aratoi we ask you to think about the big issues we face, but also enjoy the sunnier side of life; take a walk amongst majestic purple hills, discover beautiful architectural buildings, wonder over photographs from a bygone age and enjoy eclectic joyful creations.

Please join us in celebrating our Autumn Exhibitions from Lisa Chandler, Lester Blair, King Street Artworks and James Bragge.

Please RSVP to info@aratoi.co.nz by 15 March for catering purposes.
