A new Taupō Museum exhibition showcases the many angles of the Tongariro National Park.

Six artists are displaying work in the “Around the Mountain” exhibition. Oil paintings, sculpture, acrylic illustrations and photography all feature.

Each artist produced work to a different theme, related to the park.

The concept for the exhibition came about following remarks made to one of the artists, Sue Graham, that she must have painted the mountains from every angle.

Graham’s depictions of the mountain will be set in the middle of the room, allowing visitors to walk around them, getting the full effect.

Conservation enthusiast Di Michels produced 18 works featuring the birds of the National Park. All proceeds she makes will be donated to Project Tongariro conservation organisation.

Around the Mountain: Saturday, January 19 to February 25 at TaupōMuseum, Story Place, free entry.
