The current exhibition at the Muddy Waters Gallery is twofold. Firstly, the story of how the Manchurian Rice Grass came to be on our shores, how it is made into paper, together with other fibrous plant materials, such as Kumara skins. We have sheets of the handmade paper for sale so that you can create your own art pieces from this locally sourced, handmade paper. Secondly, in the Kaihu Room the art pieces, which have been created by national and international artists using Zizania paper, are displayed.
Opening Night was a lovely event, held on Friday night with approximately 50 people attending. The exhibition is housed in two of our four gallery spaces and those two rooms are filled to bursting with great things to see and ponder.
