FRESH GALLERY OTARA
FRESH is a purpose built arts facility based in the Otara town centre. The gallery has a foundation in a densely populated Pacific community in South Auckland. The gallery is a facility of Auckland Council and has show cased local creative talent for the past 6 years.
Over the past three years I have maintained a close relationship with the gallery and it’s surrounding creative community. It has been the highlight of my artistic career to have had the exhibition Avanoa O Tama open to the people of Otara, South Auckland and the Broader Auckland Area.
The space is managed by Auckland Councils Pacific arts coordinator Ema Tavola. An independent curator and Pacific arts hustler, Ema Tavola has been instrumental in the development, production and articulation of this body of work. Along with Nicole Lim (gallery assistant) the team at FGO will be hosting the show for the month of march 2012.
