Taranaki Arts Trail Exhibition

Friday 1 June – Sunday 24 June

Percy Thomson Gallery is hosting the 2018 Taranaki Arts Trail exhibition from June 1 – 24. The exhibition will feature one piece of work from all registered artists on the Trail. It is an excellent opportunity for Trail visitors to view each artist's work to decide which studios they would like to visit.
