Wootini Gallery is excited to announce the New Zealand Goes Pop group art show featuring artists living in or originally from the proud little country down under. Jess George aka Team Sweet is acting as curator for this show held at Wootini Gallery in Carrboro. Jess spent over three years living in New Zealand, where she immersed herself in the local art scene while acting as event coordinator for Auckland-based Makeshift Art Collective. As curator of this show, Jess is hoping to draw interest to the NZ art scene, bursting with talented artists, designers, illustrators, crafters and street artists.
In the curator’s words, “Because it is so far away, New Zealand often gets overlooked. Other than the Flight of the Conchords and The Lord of the Rings, many people don’t know much about this amazing country. I am hoping to spark interest in New Zealand as the country as I know it – a place teeming with talented, creative go-getters.”
The New Zealand Goes Pop show will feature prints, original paintings, plushies and customized designer figures from a group of over 10 artists.

Opening Reception – Friday, February 4th, 7-11pm
