Birthday Present at ROAR


Thurs 5 May 5:30 – 7:00pm, 189-193 Vivian St

Merita Green is a self-taught artist living in Taupo. She works intuitively with local raw materials and found objects to explore her re-experience of childhood from the perspective of motherhood.

Her ceramic dolls are each housed in tin and wood shrines reminiscent of the religious folk art commonly associated with Central and South America.

“As adults, parents, communities we clothe children in layers of our own hope, fear and judgement.”

Join us at ROAR!gallery near the corner of Vivian and Victoria Streets for the opening on Thursday 5 May 5.30 – 7pm to meet the artist/s and share a glass of wine. All welcome.
