Arts spectacular White Night returns on Saturday 14 March.
Dress up, dress down, dress in your nightgown and take to our city streets for one special night of arts festivities, surprise performances and unexpected encounters all around town.
From 6pm ’til the clock strikes 12, you’ll be struck by sights, sounds, curiosities and art in Auckland’s galleries, squares, laneways and promenades.
Free to explore until very, very late, more than 60 venues across Auckland, from north to south, east to west, present special events, exhibitions, performances, music, talks and films that the whole family can enjoy. So, ride on free White Night buses, venture indoors and out, run, frolic or amble to Auckland’s art-filled neighbourhoods in and outside the centre to linger for a twinkling at twilight.
ARTIS Gallery is proud to once again be part of the White Night art experience. Make sure to stop by ARTIS Gallery, 280 Parnell Road, to explore the sublime use of colour in richly textured works by Bridget Bidwill.
To take the simplest elements with a minimal palette and create a series of paintings is a task that has occupied Bridget Bidwill throughout her career. Bidwill’s reference to ‘still-life’ in her work is evident, even in the most abstract of her paintings. Divisions of the picture plane evoke interiors (tables, shelves and windows) while the colours create perspective and light.
