Kāpiti Gallery is re-opening on Thursday 11th June. Our “A Song in Art” exhibition was cut short by the lockdown, so it’s continuing until Sunday 21st June. Winter opening hours are 10.00 am to 3.00 pm.
The next exhibition is “Lockdown 2020”, opening on Thursday 25th June for all Groups’ members to display work done during the lockdown period.
“Drip, Dribble and Splash” begins in July, and the revised programme for the rest of the year is on the Gallery page.
It’s great to be getting back to normal! We look forward to seeing you.
