Lake House Arts presents a vibrant and engaging exhibition programme profiling artists and groups that are both nationally and locally recognised as well as community based and local artistic talents. Our exhibition programme strives to represent a wide range of visual art mediums, including historical and multi-cultural themes with links to a selection of regional and local, arts and cultural events. The exhibition programme is accompanied by a range of public programmes including artist’s talks, exhibition tours and art workshops for adults and children. 

Lake House Arts has several exhibition spaces: The Becroft Gallery, The Cafe Gallery, The Tindall Room, the Art Capsule and off site at The Spencer on Byron Hotel and Beaver Cafe.

The Alchemy of Glass

An exhibition of  glass

Alchemy - a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation or combination. Each artist has chosen their own view of practice, considering the creation of cast crystal, natural volcanic glass or other media, and its relationship to lost wax casting and the progression into an immutable permanent material. To give the viewing public an opportunity to connect with art glass on multiple levels while showcasing many aspects of the glass practice in saleable form. 


SPECIAL EVENTS: The public will be able to connect with the artists through artists talks and tutoring demonstration during the exhibition at The Lake House Arts Centre. Contact: programmes@lakehousearts.org.nz for more information.
