This month Waiheke is all about the art with three outdoor sculpture exhibitions throughout

the island.  They all finish up on Sunday 24th of March so there are three weeks to take the opportunity to appreciate all these hard working artists have to offer.

Firstly, there is Sculpt Oneroa.  This features all Waiheke based artists and is very easily accessible as the sculptures are spread throughout Oneroa Village.  Brochures detailing the artworks are available from Toi Gallery in the middle of the village. For more information visit www.sculptoneroa.co.nz

Opening this weekend is the biennial  Sculpture on the Gulf. The event is free as it is mostly held on the beautiful public walkway Te Ara Hura, but donations are appreciated.   The first event was in 2003 and has become bigger and more successful each time. Twenty eight New Zealand artists are featured this year. More details are available at www.sotg.nz 

Lastly there is a curated exhitibion at Poderi Crisci Vineyard.  Featured are recent sculptures by local artists Don, Leif and Beau Stodart, with Kyla Nancarrow, Karl Baxter and Lauren Callaghan.  Entry is free and hours are from 11.30am – 5pm most days (closed Tuesdays and Sat 9th March).  Poderi Crisci are also famous for their long lunches – bookings essential.  To find out more visit www.podericrisci.co.nz
