Exhibition – Lilach Cohen

Jewish artist brings lively images of the sea to Helensville

Art Centre Helensville features Lilach Cohen’s 2 and 3-dimensional works, culminating in an installation inspired by her relationship with the sea.

Cohen takes viewers through her memories and passionate love of beach and bush, underpinned by her Jewish faith and identity.

Cohen immigrated to New Zealand with her family in 2003 and trained at Whitecliffe School of Art. Here she focussed on painting from nature, having been captivated by New Zealand’s spectacular scenery. More recently she incorporates sand, clay and spices in her work, loving the stimulus of all the senses, not just the visual.

The selected new paintings include works that are perfumed with spices and layered with embedded found elements. The whole is accompanied by a prayer to God ‘may it never end’ on DVD.

The exhibition will be officially opened by Pauline Denton artist and Coordinator of Art Centre Helensville

Please join us for the opening on Saturday the 6th of February at 4pm – 6pm


We are really excited to be holding an exhibition of Art and objects from the John Perry collection, opening this Saturday 16 January. John Perry is well known in Helensville for his eclectic range of antiques and memorabilia jam packed into the old Regent Theatre building, known as Global Village Antiques in Helensville.
John is passionate about collecting and documenting social history, folk art, International art and all things New Zealand.
John says “This exhibition endeavours to trace my involvement with a worldwide movement in art that had a parallel birth in England and America in the early 1960’s, that of POP ART. At that time I was at Elam Art School studying Design for Printed Reproduction, Painting, Sculpture and Art History. It just so happened that this new international movement was branded Pop Art, which is short for Popular Art and it exercised a profound influence on me, not only as an artist but also as an educator, curator and collector.”
Come into the Art Centre over the next 2 weeks to view this outstanding exhibition.
On until Sat 30 January.Our hours to POP IN are Tuesday – Friday 10.00- 16.30, Saturday 10.00 – 15.00
