Art exhibition marks 30 year relationship

Art exhibition marks 30 year relationship of two Christchurch cities.

An art exhibition to be shown in Christchurch, NZ and our sister-city Christchurch, UK will open on 2 April in the English city’s iconic venue, The Priory.

Organised by New Zealand curator Adam Hayward, the exhibition will celebrate a 30 year relationship between the two cities and represent a broad range of styles, cultures and media from artists in both cities. Landscape photography, Maori design, print making and rug weaving will feature in the contributions from our local artists.

“This mix of works from some of the most interesting established and emerging artists working in our city will be displayed in the UK until 16 April,” Christchurch City Council arts advisor Marlene Le Cren said. “The 1000 year old priory is in the centre of Christchurch and is one of the area’s most popular tourist attractions. People will also be encouraged to visit the exhibition through a complementary festival being organised by the local arts council,” she said.

Among those to see the exhibition will be 26 Linwood College students and staff, who leave for England on another sister-city exchange, early next month.

The exhibition will open in Christchurch, NZ on 11 October at Creation Art Gallery, 105 Worcester St.

Local artists involved in the exhibition are: Bridget Blair Mixed Media Denise Copland Printmaker Bing Dawe Sculptor Tattane Koia Traditional Maori Artist Luciana Orr Architectural Drawings Adair Wilson Photographer
