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....

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.

Max Rashbrooke: Review - The NZSO And Nature

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
