Behind the Scenes by Gloria

Hello! I’m Gloria, an 18 year old student experiencing MTG for a week during April. I have put together a little photo essay on the backworkings of the museum from my perspective. Colour, shape, texture, pattern, our eyes pick up all these elements of a space subconsciously creating the overall mood or echo of a place. Light and airy, MTG Hawke’s Bay is a haven for beautiful and fine objects. Not only do our eyes observe the exhibitions but they also take in the surroundings which act as a canvas in which to display them. Check out the full photo essay over on MTG’s flickr page
