Lopdell House Gallery newsletter


Lopdell House Gallery newsletter


Happy New Year to all our friends and supporters.
2014 is going to be an exciting year for Lopdell House Gallery. With summer trips to the beach taking us regularly through Titirangi, we can't wait to get into our fabulous new building, which has now grown above the fence and has only a few floors to go. We're looking forward to welcoming you all to our new home later in the year, meanwhile don't forget to visit our temporary gallery and shop in New Lynn, where there's plenty to see.


Site Unseen: Veronica Herber
6 December 2013 - 26 January 2014
The distinctive 1960s architecture of neighbouring Ceramco House will be the canvas for a cascade of colour, which will flow into the gallery. Fresh from Sculpture by the Sea in Bondi, and set to depart from her signature net motif, Veronica Herber shifts everyday industrial forms from banal to intriguing through her use of geometry.

Curiosity Cabinet: From over there to over here: Australian Jewellery
6 December 2013 - 26 January 2014
Six Australia-based jewellers have been invited to show their work in this month’s Curiosity Cabinet exhibition. Each maker has their own distinct style and point of view, utilising different materials to create playful and vibrant pieces.

Music on the Triangle
Wednesday 15 January, 12.30 to 2pm
Our FREE Wednesday lunchtime music concerts are back as a summer series for 2014. Bring your lunch and enjoy great local musicians amidst the sculptures of Todd Triangle; New Lynn’s village green. Featuring world music jam band 'Singularity' with Glen Eden town cryer, Matt Reece.

Sound Spaces: Jeff Henderson

This summer we launch a new quarterly series of sound and music events that explore and activate the dynamic environments of West Auckland. First up is Waiatarua-based musician and artist Jeff Henderson, who will lead an interactive sound walk along Titirangi’s Exhibition Drive (aka the Pipeline track).
Koha entry | Meet at the track entry on the corner of Scenic Drive and Woodlands Park Road

Make & Cake: Lavender Heart Pillows

Wellington Arts Tour
7 - 9 March 2014
Do you enviously read the New Zealand Festival guide and always wish more of the events would come to Auckland? Instead, Lopdell House Gallery takes Auckland to the 2014 arts festival in Wellington. Make your own travel arrangements to suit your budget and we’ll take care of the art with a three day guided exhibition tour hosted by our director, Andrew Clifford. Meet artists, curators and dealers, and take a bus trip to Pataka in Porirua, and the Dowse Art Museum in Lower Hutt to see the exhibition Slip Cast.
Cost $80 or $60 members Email us to book – places strictly limited.

LHG 2013 Commemorative Dish
As part of the development of the new Lopdell House Gallery currently being built in Titirangi, we’ve excavated some clay from the building site to produce a series of commemorative dishes to mark this exciting occasion. Designed in collaboration with Auckland Studio Potters in a range of salt and ash glazes, there are still a few available from the Gallery Shop at $35 each.

Werewolf: Katniss Joins The News Team

From the outset, the Hunger Games series has dwelt obsessively on the ways that media images infiltrate our public and personal lives... From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.
