The Learning Connexion School of Creativity and Art is exploring the act of revelation through art in its online exhibition Whakakitea / Reveal.
Whakakitea / Reveal will be online from Thursday 1 April until Sunday 25 April. All works will be available for viewing, and many for purchase, via the TLC Art Shop website.
“In te reo Māori, Whakakitea means ‘reveal’ or ‘make visible’,” says Johannes Mueller-Welschof, Community Liaison Facilitator at The Learning Connexion.
Opening on Thursday 1 April, Whakakitea / Reveal – celebrates the act of self revelation through art, and is the first chance in 2021 for TLC students to share, and sell their work to the wider public.
“The act of exhibition is in itself an act of revelation - we ask our students to reveal a bit of themselves when they exhibit their work. It can be a daunting proposition for many who are exhibiting for the first time, but for most, it is rewarding, and a vital part of their creative journey.”
With over 150 works of art from TLC’s onsite and distance delivery students, Whakakitea will present a diverse collection from across the creative disciplines, including painting, sculpture, printmaking, jewellery, illustration and photography.
Each term The Learning Connexion (TLC) hosts a large student-run exhibition of their works. With a large increase in distance students, and uncertainty over Covid-19 levels, the school is moving this exhibition online – meaning many more people can enjoy it.
Many of the works will be on sale, and available to purchase through the TLC Art Shop website.
