Artists in our Community

With few opportunities for local artists to exhibit their work in the Hutt, Creative Voice organises collaborative exhibitions as an important ongoing part of our work. 

We also promote local creative events and artists through our e-newsletter, Facebook and website. If you want to keep up to date sign up to our e-newsletter at the end of the page. 

The following is a growing list of artists in our community who we have networked or collaborated with. Do you have a creative idea you would like to explore? Feel free to contact us>>

Mica Still

Mica Still Artist

Mica’s work, with its radiant colour and optical punch, howling tigers, wolves and naughty bits – is alive with daring, yet refreshingly sensitive. Her art work will sneak up and frighten you in your dreams while making you laugh out loud in the light of day.
