On Now: World-Wide Peep Show
Thistle Hall is a vibrant community centre in the heart of New Zealand's cultural capital. We provide a community hall, meeting room and Wellington's only community gallery showcasing a range of artists and crafts people, from the established to the emerging. Thistle Hall is located one the corner of Cuba and Arthur streets. The shows on at Thistle Hall Community Gallery are run by the artists who hire it.
6 - 12 OCTOBER 2008
Opening 5.00pm Monday 6 October.
RSVPs by email nzercoastkid[at]xtra.co.nz would be supportive but not necessary. We love walk ins too, so tell a friend. Thanks in advance.
Alternatively we are making Saturday morning refreshments at the gallery for those of you who can’t make it during the week. Please come along then, an RSVP would help us serve you.
The gallery will be open from 11.00am – 7.00pm Tuesday to Sunday. John will be using the time creatively (only some say) – with a trestle of wonderment, which he will be using to create further works. To see the artist in action week days…please come along.
“Twenty years plus in LA CA might have something to do with it , folks.”
Turn up, drop in & freak out!
My artwork is assemblages of vintage & antique objects; fabric, porcelain, ephemera, flotsam and jetsam. The array creates 3D, often tactile, sculptural observations. Works are often fun, but designed to emote and reflect social, metaphysical and sometimes deeply personal events. With this communion I hope to stimulate my audience, and evoke feelings on many levels, even if only a smile.
14 - 19 OCTOBER 2008
