For those of you on the hunt for beautiful art, this coming Easter weekend offers two fantastic annual Northland arts trails for enthusiasts and tourists alike along our East coast.

On Easter Saturday and Sunday, 15 & 16 April, both the Mangawhai and Whangarei Heads arts trails will be happening.

The Mangawhai Arts Trail will be held at 20 different venues with over 50 Artists exhibiting their work from 10am-4pm both days. This is a free, self drive trail with maps available from the Mangawhai Artists Gallery in Moir Street from early this month. Check their Facebook page for updates as well.

Further North in Waipu over 20 fibre and textile artists will be showcasing their latest work at the Fibre Art Expo in the Coronation Hall on Saturday 15 April from 9am – 4pm.

The exhibition will include flax weavers, spinners, weavers, leather workers, felting, knitters, embroiderers, wool and mohair workers, doll makers, patch workers and art quilters.

The Whangarei Heads Arts Trail runs from 10am-5pm daily with 30 local artists and 12 guest artists spread throughout the Heads at home studios and at three community venues.

The work on offer will be in a multitude of different mediums to suit every taste, including painting, jewellery, ceramics, sculpture, glass, prints, photos, textiles, metal and woodwork.

A Trail Guide will available for sale for just $5 at various points around Whangarei and at the Heads to map out the arts stops and this small fee includes a raffle ticket with fantastic prizes to be won.

Up in Hokianga at the Village Arts Gallery they have a new exhibition “Shimmer” which is definitely a to-do for those wanting a bit of respite from the sun or rain in this beautiful community gallery.

If you have friends visiting make sure you take them along to one of these fantastic arts events and remind them to take cash in case they feel the need to invest in a piece that will remind them of their time in Northland.
