Last Days of Emerging Artist Awards

Final Days Of The 2014 TCAC Emerging Artist Awards...
Don't Miss Out!

The exhibition closes this Sunday at 4:30pm.

Make sure you pop in and vote for your favourite work (one favourite in the combined show).

Our favourite annual show, and this year we have two shows for you!

The high standard of entries and variety of work was so good - how could we 'not' sort out a way for everyone to enjoy it.

You'll find the Finalist Exhibition of 20 works in the Upstairs Art Gallery, on Level One of Lopdell House, and the B-Group Exhibition (the unselected works) in the restaurant space downstairs on the ground floor.

Bear in mind - the volunteers minding the gallery space are very likely to be artists with work in the show - so you'll also have a wonderful opportunity to chat to them about their work.

Now it's your turn to vote! You are welcome to make your 'People's Choice' vote for your favourite work in the combined show. It's one vote per person (that's really hard!). The two artists with the most votes will receive one of the following two prizes: A $100 MyCanvas Gift Voucher, or A Quick Fix 30 Minute Back, Neck & Shoulder Massage by Sarah-Jane at Massage In The House - M4L, in Lopdell House.

Our finalists are:

Akemi Nakamura – Woman Sitting On The Couch /Andre Sampson – xxxviii, 2014 / Angela Rudland-Wood – Home / Christine Liutai – Child’s Play / Fred Brunell – After Apple Picking / Honglin Xu – The Falling Leaf / Irena Adamska – Silence / Jennie Colman – Kowhai / Kerry Sayegh – The Botanist Dream / Kris Burrows – Mangroves, Manukau Harbour / Kyle Grenfell – Exodus / Levon Parker – Neural Star / Rachael Burke – Down By The Riverside / Ray-Gee -Pacific Bloom / Rhianna McCormick-Burns – Kia Kaha / Rose Meyer – Notes from readings / Sonja Drake – Bubbling Up, Secrets of Sunken Trees, Arapuni / Sunny Hee – Silent Frustration / Tracey Watson – Trophy Specimen / Alex Hilary – No.2

We're so grateful for the support we received for this show - right across the community. We can't thank them enough - please support them back....

YOU ARE INVITED ...

Birdsong
Photography and Mixed Media works by Ros Lowrey and Simon Raine

You are invited to join us to celebrate the opening of Birdsong next Thursday evening, 11th September from 6-7:30.

“I have called New Zealand home for 8 years since stepping off the plane from the UK in 2007, and I immediately fell in love with the open spaces. I love to walk alone with my camera hoping to capture a flavour of the landscapes and a sense of the atmosphere and grandeur of the environment. Sometimes I happen upon abandoned buildings, cars and caravans which have seen better times. I wonder about the lives that have passed through them and the love that must once have been lavished upon them, before they were forgotten.
No-one is present in these images. There is just the viewer entering into these forgotten places experiencing a frozen moment.” Simon Raine.

“I love fabric design and pattern, I also like being in the outdoors and the bush, I like old and whimsical things, sometimes these things come together sometimes they do not. In this exhibition my work explores connected histories and in a number of works includes the Tui and Victorian pattern to explore ideas. Other works use images that I collect and connect with, on my walks and travels. “ Ros Lowrey.

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.
