BEACH INSPIRED EXHIBITION! | PLAYA DESIGNS

http://www.thistlehall.org.nz/img/gallery/2012/nov19.jpgOPENING: 6pm Monday 12 November.
OPEN: 9.30am - 6pm Tuesday - Sunday

Ronal Villalobos is the founder of Playa Designs, and the creator and designer of a range of unique driftwood sculptures, mosaics, drawings and artwork. Ronal draws his inspiration from the coast, the beach, his native Chile and new home, Wellington. In Spanish, "playa" means beach. Each and every artwork Ronal designs is original; handmade from recycled, natural materials sourced regularly from Wellington's beaches. "My work comes from what I see in each piece of driftwood, shell or glass. I look at what the sea has gifted and the piece begins to take shape," says Ronal.

Migrating from Chile in 2005, Ronal says much of his artwork has been inspired by New Zealand and its beaches. "I originally started creating these pieces about eight years ago, always gathering materials from the beach in my village. Then when I came to New Zealand I continued my artwork, but my new environment took my work in a new direction."

http://www.thistlehall.org.nz/img/gallery/2012/nov19-3.jpgCreator of over 200 individual pieces of artwork to date, most of Ronal's sculptures are made from driftwood, stone, shells, and sea glass. He has worked on this collection for a number of years and this is his inaugural exhibition.

"l have wanted to exhibit my artwork to the public for quite some time and hope people will enjoy seeing my work as much as I've enjoyed creating it." Ronal's one-off designs are available for purchase and commissions are welcome.

Pukeahu Park : ANZAC 100th Anniversary Dawn Service In Pictures

Roughly 18,000 people gathered this morning at Pukeahu Memorial Park for the Anzac day centenary. Anticipating the large turnout, patrons arrived as early as 4.30. It was virtually impossible to get near the Memorial after 5am. By 6, the crowds on Taranaki Street had stretched as far back as the Z Petrol station.

The screens erected around the park displayed the live events to those who had turned up. The heat generated by the huge number of people caused many to take a turn. Medics and ambulances were on hand for the fainting crowd members. Only twenty minutes into the ceremony, one medic said they had already dealt with 15 to 20 spells. More>>
