Thursday 2 July | 4pm - 10pm

This month, we celebrate the Matariki Wellington Festival with Art Night on Thursday 2 July, 4-10pm. Expressions joins forces with other special late night openings at galleries across the Wellington region, Te Papa, The Dowse (Lower Hutt), Pataka (Porirua), City Gallery (Wellignton) and Mahara Gallery (Waikanae). Jump on board a free Art Night bus and celebrate Matariki with live music, exhibitions and special events after dark. At Expressions we have the WINTER WELL MADE CRAFT FAIR ,as well as live music by Amira Grenell, kids craft activities and fresh hot soup…. All for free!

It is also a great way to see our incredibly exhibition 50 Greatest Photographs of National Geographic after hours and away from the crowds.

The Buses run 4-10pm. There will be one circuit between Porirua (Pataka), Lower Hutt (the Dowse) and the CBD (City Gallery Wellington and Te Papa) with buses departing every 15 minutes in BOTH directions, as well as shuttle running The Dowse and Expressions every 30 minutes; and between Pataka and Mahara Gallery (Waikanae) running every 45-60 minutes.
