Unique & Iconic Jandal Art Exhibition

Unique & Iconic Jandal Art Exhibition

The third annual Jandal Art Exhibiton has flip flopped its way to a great start.
Held at award-winning café, BeesOnline in Waimauku, the exhibition features a variety of art, all entered by local artists, from sculptures, mosaic, painting, photography, sketching and embroidery, all inspired by the iconic jandal.
Keep an eye out for Madeline Cleveland’s piece of art who, at age seven, is the youngest entrant, with her fully edible Jandal artwork.  
BeesOnline owner and founder of the exhibition, Maureen Maxwell, comments “Every year the artwork is more creative and diverse. It really is quite incredible what can be created using the humble Kiwi jandal for inspiration!”
The Jandal Art Exhibiiton is part of a two week festival called the Jafa & Jandals Fest, which aims to raise the profile of the Kumeu Coast & Country region, by celebrating the friendly, family orientated, relaxed lifestyle and community spirit that the local residents enjoy. The Jafa & Jandals Fest began on 13th March and runs through to Sunday 30th April.
Other events happening throughout the Fest include Coopers Creek Jazz events, a Croatian Harvest Festival at Soljans Winery, and a ‘Thong & Dance’ at Allely House.
The Helensville Electorate MP and leader of the Opposition, John Key, has even got involved by placing giant jandals (the same pair that caused a stir in Parliament last year when the Opposition accused him of “flip flopping”) on top of his electorate office in Huapai.
The Fest is organised by the The Kumeu Coast & Country Promotions Group Inc., the area’s business association, which encompasses the cliffs overlooking Muriwai and the Gannet Colony, north to Woodhill Forest, Waimauku, Coatesville, historic Riverhead, Taupaki and, of course, the Kumeu and Huapai business districts.
For more information, pick up a Trail Map from supporting businesses or the Kumeu Visitors Information Centre. The Trail Map lists all companies involved, all events planned and how to get yourself into the draw to win luxurious prizes from the Kumeu Coast & Country region.
