About

Part time Artist is an affordable Art Fair with live bands/musicians, live comedy shows, craft stalls, food stalls, a full bar, body-painting, fortune-telling and of course, New Zealand artworks for sale at affordable prices.

Held at The Classic on Sunday the 18th of November, it is guaranteed to be an exciting day where fair-goers are encouraged to hang out on the comfy couches and enjoy the surroundings of local art, craft, music, comedy, food and whimsy!

We're moving away from that sterile white gallery to an accessible, vibrant atmosphere. A hub of activity that everyone can relax and enjoy!

Background

The 23rd of April, 2012, marks the conception of Part Time Artist Full Time Friend’. Alyce Stampa and Ashleigh Ogden in a late night discussion mulled over the fact that they had such talented friends in regards to the arts; musicians, visual artists, avid bakers and crafty folk. These talented friends were passionate about art and their skills but could not support themselves without, what they call, ‘a real job’. In most cases, years have gone by without audiences ever experiencing their potential but their dreams still live on. Alyce and Ashleigh decided that what these people really need is an opportunity, something to work towards and a chance to show themselves off.

As well as this, Alyce and Ashleigh talked at length about New Zealand Art. In particular, how expensive it is and how uncomfortable they feel trawling for works to go in their homes due to the sterile, silent atmosphere of some art galleries.

And so, they envisioned an event that would allow people to come along to a venue and have a good time, enjoy the surroundings and peruse a wide variety of art by Aucklanders and New Zealand’s emerging artists, all at affordable prices.

Scoop Review Of Books: Wartime Women

Coinciding as it does with the movie Imitation Game which focusses on Alan Turing breaking the Enigma code in Hut 6 at Bletchley Park (“BP”), this book is likely to attract a wide readership. It deserves to do so, as it illustrates that BP was very much more than Turing and his colleagues. More>>
