Another eggcellent exhibition.
Taupō Museum has a new exhibition opening and this year it's about birds.
Exhibitions officer Kerence Stephen said ReTweet is an eggcellent bird-themed exhibition, opening on Saturday and running until December 14. ReTweet follows on from Re-Cycle in 2017, the award-winning Dog Show exhibition in 2018 and last year's CATalogue exhibition.
Like birds of a feather, this exhibition also features artworks, sculptures and accessories made from recycled or re-purposed materials.

Kerence said many of the same artists who created works for Re-Cycle, the Dog Show and CATalogue exhibitions have taken on the bird challenge, making the recycled theme exhibitions a popular and highly anticipated annual project for creative people, professional artists, crafts people and children alike.
"These exhibitions inevitably attract a diverse collection of artwork because the artists enjoy the theme of recycling and, in this case, birds.
"So artists can create whatever takes their fancy, as long as it has a feathery theme."
And the big question that all bird owners will be wondering, other than why did the duck cross the road, is are birds allowed to view the exhibition? To prove he wasn't chicken is one of the answers and "Yes" is the other answer!
If you flock to the museum during this exhibition, with or without your bird, Kerence says to expect to see birds created from all sorts of recycled materials such as cutlery, bike parts, bread tags, beach glass and even some taxidermied creations.
Entry is free for children and residents with proof of address and the museum is open 10am to 4.30pm daily. For further information contact Kerence Stephen at 376 1583.
