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.

Peace Poppy Project exhibition

Wednesday 19 April 2017 - Friday 12 May 2017

The Peace Poppy Project started as a single art installation of 1000 hand made felt poppies displayed at Titirangi roundabout for the local ANZAC parade in 2013. From these beginnings the project has captured the heart and spirit of thousands of people.  To date over 50,000 poppies  have made  and been displayed  throughout  Auckland, Tauranga, Hamilton,  Christchurch and in  overseas cemeteries. Many community art galleries have been involved along with schools, scouts, RSA’s, retirement villages, libraries, workshops and numerous other groups. People from all walks of life, all different ages  and different cultural backgrounds  have taken part.  
The photographic exhibition that will be held in the Becroft Gallery shows images of the displays that have been installed all over the country for the last 4 years.

The Collodation Collective

Wednesday 31 May 2017 - Monday 26 June 2017

Wet plate collodion is one of photography’s earliest processes, flourishing for few decades in the mid-19th century. Requiring the creation and development of large format glass or metal photographic plates “on-site”, its temperamental chemistry, fine grain and beautiful image quality is again being rediscovered by a small band of kiwi photographers. Utilising roughly equal quantities of faith and skill our “Collodion Collective” have been sharing ideas, discoveries and formulae with each other as we each make our personal collodion journey. For the first time, we are putting on a group show of our work showing a range of tintypes, black glass ambrotypes and large format prints.
