There are views of this district we are familiar with: the birds eye view of gridded plains, sunsets over Waihora, snowcapped peaks of Kā Tiritiri o te Moana. But which views are important to the people of this community and how do they choose to portray this place? What happens when we look in, rather than out? In this exhibition, local artists respond to this theme by presenting the views they deem to be important, providing a window into life in Selwyn.
