Peter Yealands Wines brings art to the people

Peter Yealands Wines brings art to the people at Christchurch Art Show



Gallifrey - Vjekoslav Nemesh


The 2014 Christchurch Art Show inaugural art awards have received a boost from major sponsor, Peter Yealands Wines (PYW). The People’s Choice Award will now be known as the Peter Yealands Wines Award. The winner of The Peter Yealands Wines Award will be announced post event and will receive a total prize value of $3500.

The 11 paintings chosen for the Art Award by sole judge David Woodings will be displayed for the three show days so the general public can vote on their favourite piece. Woodings has lived through both major earthquakes and produced three separate, but related series of works with the earthquakes as a theme which can be seen at the Art Show.

Peter Yealands Wines are proud to bring acclaimed artist, Vjekoslav Nemesh to the art show from his native Yugoslavia. Nemesh and PYW will fundraise for The Christchurch Appeal Trust through a live auction of an artwork he will create from scratch at the Christchurch Art Show Opening Night event on Thursday 19th June. All funds received from the auction will be donated to the Trust.

South Island Farmer of the Year and winery founder, Peter Yealands is happy that his wine will be associated with art and that the sponsorship of the Christchurch Art Show will have a positive benefit for Cantabrians still feeling the effects of the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes.

“We have a strong history of supporting art in the Marlborough region and believe that good art like good wine should be accessible to everyone” Peter says. “As the major sponsor of the art show we hope to build on our current association with the arts to benefit New Zealand artists and South Island residents especially“.

Art show visitors can bid for Mr Nemesh’ work via a silent auction held over the four days of the event. Art show visitors can cast their vote for the Peter Yealands Wines Award on site from 7:30pm on the 19th of June until the event closeson Sunday 22nd at 4pm.

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.
