Current Exhibition

Soda Water & Time

by Michael Neale. 

Soda Water & Time is a glimpse into Te Aroha's past and present.⁠

Photographed on medium format film through 2019 - 2020, Michael was searching for beauty and misery within the ordinary. He would wander for hours, through the streets and the wetlands, studying and photographing scenes that would often go unnoticed amongst the every day.

31 October - 27 November.

Coming up

The Love Laundry

What it is

The concept of the exhibition is simple: people of all artistic skills are welcome to showcase their work on the "laundry" line.

In return for displaying your work, you can take something home with you!

Art can be ANYTHING - you might be a jewellery maker, stitcher, photographer, painter or keen poet... ALL art work is welcome.

If you've ever popped in to Plain Jane and told me about your incredible work, now's your time to show it off!

How it works

  1. Find something you love (keep it under a3 please)
  2. Bring it to Plain Jane 136 Whitaker Street and hang it on the line
  3. In return, take something you love!
