Second Ever Blue Oyster International Art Fair


The Second Ever Blue Oyster International Art Fair

Friday 23 November 5.30pm - 7.30pm at The Temple Gallery, 29 Moray Place, Dunedin


The Blue Oyster Arts Trust was founded in 1999 as a project space that would allow artists to develop their practices. Its purpose was also intended to broaden the understanding of contemporary and experimental arts in the Dunedin community by providing a forum for discussion and debate. During our thirteen year existence, we have been located in our current Moray Place location for the latter half and are hoping to move to a new premises within the next six months. Creative New Zealand continues to support the cost of our base operations and, encouragingly, has increased our funding in 2013 in order to secure a location with increased visibility and and improved access for the public. In turn this will provide a greater profile for the exhibiting artists.

THE SECOND EVER BLUE OYSTER INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR is being held to raise funds for the refit and renovation of the new space. The refit will include installation of gallery lighting, the addition and removal of walls, and the replacement of carpet with finished concrete floors amongst many other necessary modifications.

THE SECOND EVER BLUE OYSTER INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR takes place on Friday 23rd November at 5.30pm - 7.30pm
at The Temple Gallery, 29 Moray Place, Dunedin

THE SECOND EVER BLUE OYSTER INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR will offer ten exciting contemporary works by Blue Oyster friends and alumni. Each of the 10 works will be offered for $500. All you need to do is come to the event and place your name beside an artwork to go into the draw to purchase the work for only $500. You may enter the draw for as many works as you are interested in but you may win only one. Entries for all works will close at 7.00pm and the winners will be drawn at 7.30pm.

Kate Fitzharris

Anzac Issue Out Now: Werewolf 47

Alison McCulloch: Lest We Remember

Local iwi have plans to spruce up the Te Ranga site as part of the 150th commemorations this year of key battles in the “New Zealand Wars”, but not a lot of money to do it with.

Information gathered from numerous government agencies shows that while more than $25 million is being spent on monuments and commemorations relating to foreign wars, primarily World War I and its centenary, only around $250,000 has been set aside for those fought on our own soil. More>>

Anne Russell: Anzac Day - Identity Politics, With Guns

Even cursory research into media reports from the past forty years reveals a cultural shift in the commemoration of Anzac Day. Among other things, turnout at Dawn services has increased significantly in recent decades.

Contemporary numbers are estimated at 3,000-4,000 in Wellington, and 10,000-15,000 in Auckland. Newspaper reports from the 1970s and 80s estimated Wellington turnouts at 300-800, and Auckland at anywhere from 600 to 4,000. More>>
