Bears’ & ‘Smack’

Bernie Harfleet, Donna Sarten
Tauranga Art Gallery
14 May – 11 July (Floor talk 29 May 1.00pm)

Corban studio artists, Donna Sarten and Bernie Harfleet have work at Tauranga’s public art gallery for the next two months, after being invited to show by gallery director Penelope Jackson.
Both works reflect these artists concern for the treatment of children in New Zealand, and both works are award winners.
Donna’s piece ‘Smack’ won first prize in the Lincoln Green sculpture award, as part of the trust awards in 2008.
Bernie’s work ‘Bears’, of which this is the gallery version, won best sculpture at Waitakaruru sculpture park last year.
The Tauranga Gallery has been open since Oct 2007 and has received an architecture award for its design. It is built on the site of the cities first BNZ bank, and still retains the old vault where this work is being shown.
