Show map


In November 1998 Northart opened its doors with a fascinating exhibition presenting works from five of the artists featured in Helen Schamroth’s then recently published ‘100 New Zealand Craft Artists’.

Twenty years on, ‘First Five’ revisits that show and provides a rare opportunity to see the ways in which machine embroider Freda Brierley, ceramicists Peter Collis and Merilyn Wiseman, wearable art designer Susan Holmes and jewellery artist Warwick Freeman have developed their practice and ideas over the past two decades.

While not a retrospective, some of the artists may include works from the original exhibition alongside newer pieces.
