Now showing as the Virtual Tart exhibition: Taranaki to Terre Verte
Taranaki artists took an exhibition to Altarnun in Cornwall, UK.

Four artists travelled (Jenny Bielawski, Dale Copeland, Paul Hutchinson and Mili Purpil),
carrying over 100 artworks by 22 Taranaki artists as their luggage.
They had the time of their lives in the beautiful village of Altarnun, on the edge of Bodmin Moor,
and the exhibition in Terre Verte gallery, looked just perfect!
A sample of the works is shown on our Exhibition page on this site.
And at the bottom of the page, you can see images of how the exhibition looked in Cornwall.
