The Rodney Baha’i community will hold an exhibition on the theme of Expressions of Unity at Estuary Arts Orewa, from October 21 to November 17.
The show will commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of the Báb, one of the founding prophets of the Bahá’í faith.
On show will be around 50 artworks, from paintings and sculpture to ceramics and jewellery. More than 25 artists, including award-winning artist Suzannah Law, have contributed work, and many of the artists are members of the Baha’i community.
An organiser Bronwyn Dale says that as an independent world religion, the Baha’i faith holds preeminent the principles of the oneness of God, the oneness of religion and the oneness of humankind.
“The exhibition in Rodney is one of the many diverse global celebrations of this historic occasion, with the theme reflecting a belief in ‘oneness’,” she says.
As part of the celebrations, a Baha’i Holy Day event will be held at Estuary Arts on Tuesday October 29, from 7pm. The event is open to the public and will include a devotional portion, a brief presentation, music, a dance performance and light refreshments. All welcome.
