Monumental fundraising continues

Media release 25 February 2014

Monumental fundraising continues

The Ashburton Art Gallery in conjunction with the Regent Cinema are hosting a fundraising night not to be missed. The Gallery is continuing with its efforts to raise funds for the fixtures and fittings of the new building and the Regent are supporting their efforts in ‘monumental’ ways.

The film night which will take place on Thursday 13th March will kick off at 7pm at the cinema and will consist of a screening of the highly anticipated film The Monuments Men directed by George Clooney.

Regarded as “the greatest treasure hunt in history” the film is based on a book by Robert M. Edsel and the true story of the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives program (MFAA) which was established in 1943 under the Civil Affairs and Military Government Sections of the Allied armies to help protect art and other cultural property in war areas during and after World War II.

The stellar cast includes George Clooney, Matt Damon, Hugh Bonneville, Bill Murray and Cate Blanchett to name a few and will no doubt impress viewers. Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased at the Gallery. Light refreshments will be provided as part of the event.

Include contact details. Ashburton Art Gallery, Baring Square East, 03 308 1133

End.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
