A new exhibition coming to Taupō Museum has been assembled to showcase the beauty of our wonderful Tongariro National Park.

The concept for this unique exhibition came about following remarks made to one of the artists, Sue Graham, that she must have painted the mountains from every angle. From this came the unique idea of positioning the artworks in the middle of the room and for visitors to walk around to get the full effect.

Alongside Sue, five additional artists have been invited with works complimenting the theme of the Tongariro National Park, displaying their own series of artworks around the walls of the gallery, including photography, sculpture, drawings and paintings of New Zealand native flora and fauna of the area.
