As advised in our last Kia Hiwa Rā, Tobias Gilsenan’s first solo exhibition opened over the weekend. Tobias told us that, many years ago he received a number of study grants to assist him in studying for his Design degree (2000-03), for which he was “very appreciative”. We offer our aroha and tautoko Tobias, his partner, Francesca, and their tama Tiakingahere in their future endeavours, and hope the exhibition is a successful one. So if you’re in the area, or passing through, stop to check out Tobias’ exhibition. It runs until March 17.
