100 Women Rotorua

100 Women exhibition

100 Women Rotorua

**UPDATE: The opening of this exhibition has been postponed until Friday 12 March 2021.

This extensive photographic exhibition by local artist, Katie Hoy, highlights the diverse female population of Rotorua and explores how they knit together to create a community.

Showcasing 100 Rotorua women who represent the female population by age, ethnicity and country of birth, this exhibition is on display at the Rotorua Lakes Council from Friday 12 March until Friday 30 April 2021.

The purpose of this project was to represent the diverse local population and celebrate women in all capacities. Photographer, Katie Hoy, has always sought to see the connections between people, and between people and place in her art.

As an immigrant to New Zealand, and after calling Rotorua home for 12 years, Katie wanted to meet women from the wider Rotorua community, to hear their stories and share them publicly in her first solo exhibition.

Katie is a photographer and artist from the United Kingdom who made Rotorua her home in 2009. She studied fine art, literature and creative writing and aims to explore human connection and storytelling within all of her artworks.

100 Women Rotorua will be on show at the Rotorua Lakes Council Galleria (1061 Haupapa Street) from 12 March until 30 April 2021.  The Galleria is open Monday – Friday from 8am until 5pm.
