Slice of Life

Village Arts Gallery in Kohukohu, Hokianga, has developed an interesting variation on the Cultural Mapping theme with its ‘Slice of Life’ exhibition, acknowledging a familiar and iconic aspect of Kohukohu history and identity.

The subject is Vic Gurney’s truck, and true to the spirit of the cultural mapping project and its focus on community engagement, invites everyone with a story about the truck to share this through their exhibition, scheduled for May. The Depot has enjoyed its relationship with Village Arts over the years, sharing a common philosophy on community and the role of the arts in supporting community identity and cohesiveness.
