Art exhibition launches new space on K'Rd

Seven Artists Converge To Launch New Artistic Space on Auckland’s K’Rd

“Lineage”, a collection of multi-disciplined artwork from seven local artists, is being held at The Salon, a new artistic space at the iconic Ironbank in Auckland, from December 5 - 19.

Inspired by Virginia Woolf’s “For we think through our mothers, if we are women”, the artwork represents seven different journeys, self-preservation and struggle and the authenticity and rawness of relationships.

It’s the first exhibition to be held at The Salon; a shared space for artistic expression and exchange. “Lineage” will showcase work from Jillian Friedlander, Sue Dickson, Dorota Broda, Susan Wells, Alvie McKree, Denise Murphy and Jill Varani.

First-time exhibitor Jillian Friedlander presents “Pearls of Wisdom”, a collection of raw black and white photographs, and bold colourful paintings celebrating autumn in Arrowtown and the popcorn carnival of summer.

“It’s all about the layers of life. I want to show people as they are. Wrinkles, freckles; they’re all characteristics of life. Whether it’s good, bad or in between – the wonders of age are what gives you wisdom,” she says. “Life experience teaches you to look at things in a different light and appreciate the simple things in life.”

Jillian Friedlander says the The Salon is a haven for non-established and established artists to come and exchange creative ideas and inspiration.

“Ironbank is an ideal place to foster and harbour free creative thinking – there’s already a dynamic community of creative talent here and it’s really exciting to be a part of it.”

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
