Kim Hill auctions off contemporary jewellery

Contemporary, one off, exclusive jewellery up for auction – an event not to be missed.

At Pataka Museum of Arts and Cultures in Porirua, Thursday 16 October, 5pm.

National Radio Broadcaster Kim Hill will auction off jewellery from both contemporary jewellery students and pieces donated by established jewellers like Peter Deckers and Matthew Macintyre Wilson.

Students have organised this event. As part of a course project, the money raised goes toward a catalogue of their years’ work which will be distributed nationally and internationally - to galleries, libraries, collectors and institutes.

“Friends of Pataka approached us this year; eager to host the event at Pataka Museum” says Suni Gibson, a current jewellery student. “It was a huge success last year, our catalogue was sent out to places like the Ra Gallery in Amsterdam and the Academy in Munich.”

The Bachelor of Applied Arts at Whitireia is well known for exhibition and market projects. Students currently have an exhibition at the Museum of City and Sea in Wellington. As part of the creative enterprise component of the bachelor, students learn how to organise exhibitions, advertise, liaise and consult with galleries and museums.

The event kicks off at 5pm with drinks and nibbles, and jazz music from Whitireia’s Bachelor of Music students, followed by the auction itself which will begin at 6pm. The jewellery is available to be viewed at the main entrance to Pataka already. All are welcome, any queries contact Peter Decker’s on (04) 2373100 ext. 3724.
