Our Crimson Icon – Prints by Gabi Pfaender

Fri 1st Nov 2019 until
Mon 25th Nov 2019

About the Exhibition

Our Crimson Icon is Gabi Pfaender’s creative response to Project Crimson which seeks to draw awareness to the state of this country’s iconic tree the Pohutukawa. Her concern for the loss of Pohuktukawa is central to this body of work – an installation of intaglio prints and seeds collected from last summer’s  blossoms gathered from Far North Pohutukawa trees.  Our Crimson icon is timed to celebrate just as the Pohuktukawa starts to flower this season.

On Friday 8 November from 4 pm, come and hear more about the exhibition with the artist and hear more details  from a representative of Northland Regional Council about the threats to Pohutukawa and what we can do about it.
