NEXT EXHIBITION opening 4 Feb 11am
ALEX CAMINITI | from one island to another
We are very proud to host Internationally renowned Sicilian artist ALEX CAMINITI as our resident artist at Kaan Zamaan, for the month of February.
A Powhiri to welcome Caminiti will take place on Sunday 29th January at 10am, to welcome the artist to New Zealand on his first ever visit to Aotearoa.
An exhibition of paintings and sculpture will open February 4th, 11am -2pm. To view the exhibition, the gallery will be open Tuesday – Friday and by appointment during the artist’s stay. Workshops will be help at weekends.
Caminiti is keen to explore Maori culture. He will hold a weekend workshop for underprivileged children from around Northland mid February. Having experienced challenges as an orphan child himself ,Caminiti believes life experiences are what make an artist. The workshop ‘ TAONGA DEBRIS : CAMINITI ‘ aims to allow the children to explore through model making, sculpture and painting. Recycling will be the theme, creating new artwork from old debris. The children aged 10 – 15 years participating in this workshop at Kaan Zamaan, will be selected by Bald Angels Charitable Trust. The trust is sponsoring the cost of the two day workshop, covering the cost of food, transport and accomodation at Ti Tii Marae where the children will be hosted for the weekend. A support team of volunteers from Kerikeri community will help with the after workshop care and activities, it should be an inspirational experience for all concerned.
Other workshops for paying participants from the general public will also be arranged, contact Kaan Zamaan to register.

Our fundraiser last year “WE CARE” .
The total amount raised so far is just over $12 780 ! The money was passed on to Kia Ora Gaza, to help with medical supplies for Gaza. THANK YOU everyone for your generosity, it was an AMAZING effort, let’s hope we bring just a little relief to some of these desperate children’s lives. Some $300 also went to Save The Children.
A view of the opening night, thank you Sophi Reinholt for the video.
