S.O.S fundraiser exhibtion at the Academy Galleries

S.O.S fundraiser exhibtion at the Academy Galleries: Artists Donations Announced

The New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts was established in 1882 and is one of the country’s longest serving arts institutions. Over the years the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts has had highs and lows. As a self-funded organisation the institution has had to adapt in changing times to ensure its survival. What has remained over the years is the support the Academy has offered to many artists.

Artists such as Evelyn Page, William Sutton, John Drawbridge, Doris Lusk, Mirek Smisek, Dame Rangimarie Hetet, Robyn Kahukiwa, Doreen Blumhart, Avis Higgs and Peter McIntyre have been a part of the Academy’s history and have made major contributions to New Zealand art history.

The Academy Galleries is holding a fundraising exhibition titled S.O.S and has had donations from the following artists: Peter Augustin, Alison Boyce, Di Conway, Anthea Crozier, Fredricka Ernsten, Cindy Flook, Kirsty Fyfe, Ruth Gardiner, Larrise Hall, Frances Hanson, Ellen Hodgetts, Fraser Hoffe, Susan Hurrell – Fields, Maas Huub, Anna Ivannoska, Vivian Manthel – French, Wendy Masters, Karin McCombe – Jones, Alfred Memelink, Syd Moore, Peter Muller, Lee Robinson, Jenny Shearer, Sue Shore, Robyn Taylor, Mary Thum and Miranda Woollett.

The exhibition features painting, photography, ceramics, jewellery and sculpture and is available for viewing from Saturday 22 March at the Academy Galleries, 1 Queens Wharf, Wellington.

The artworks will be auctioned on Friday 4 April from 6 pm onwards. Tickets for S.O.S Auction Night are available for purchase at the Academy Galleries. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts to ensure it is able to continue supporting artists in the future.

Scoop Review Of Books: No Longer An Island

Simon Nathan reviews 'Zealandia: Our Continent Revealed': The idea that New Zealand is part of a large submerged continent is not new... There was renewed interest in the extent of offshore New Zealand from the 1970s onwards with the start of offshore drilling for oil and gas, and this was given impetus by a UN agreement which allowed countries to claim an Extended Continental Shelf (ECS).

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>>
