Three Local Caterers Sponsor Art Attack!

Three Local Caterers Sponsor Art Attack! 2005

Wednesday, 27 July 2005, 5 – 8 pm 15 Galleries, 23 Exhibitions, One Night

Steaming hot coffee, delicious food and captivating artwork will all be on offer at this year’s ART ATTACK! Due to the generosity of three local caterers, and in addition to wine supplied by participating galleries, fine food and fresh coffee will be available for visitors to enjoy during their tour of Christchurch’s premier art galleries on Wednesday, 27 July, 2005.

Specialising in Pacific-inspired flavours, Julia Oakley Arts catering creates aesthetically beautiful food that’s almost too good to eat! Already a local favourite, later this year, Oakley intends to showcase her talents when she opens Brenchley House Art Gallery and Boutique Accommodation – a Lyttelton retreat for slow food and art lovers. To be first to try her delights, head to the Centre of Contemporary Art (CoCA) on Gloucester Street.

Boutique roasts from the Underground Coffee Company will be available for sampling at three Art Attack! galleries including 64zero3 and NG Gallery. The company’s passion for creating outstanding espresso has seen them awarded a gold medal for their organic blend at the 2004 NZ Coffee Festival. Their highest quality Arabica bean blends are also available at their four Christchurch cafes – Cup (Cashmere), Red (South Library), Underground Coffee (Colombo Street) and the soon to open NG Gallery café (Madras Street).

Sauce Gourmet Food Bar and Catering, a young progressive company located in High Street, are well known for their fresh home-style food, mouth-watering sweet treats and unique wedding cakes made to order. The Physics Room will be their host for the evening. - more - About Art Attack! Christchurch’s annual collective gallery open evening is now in its fourth year and well established on the arts calendar. Designed to provide a sense of community, the evening offers a relaxed, social arts experience for both regular gallery visitors and those less acquainted with the gallery scene.

A free bus will run on a 30-minute cycle connecting the participating galleries in the opposite parts of town – the Cultural Precinct and the High Street Precinct. ART ATTACK! is funded by the Creative Communities Funding Scheme, an initiative of the Christchurch City Council and Creative New Zealand.
