Parnell Dogs of Art, done and dusted.


Parnell Dogs of Art, done and dusted.



amandareelick.dogauction-7.jpg - Golden Mandala Dog by Artist Rae West

--
For the third, and most talked about year yet, Parnell hosted their annual ‘Year of…Exhibition’ placing 20 Designer Dogs centre stage.

The Parnell Business Association invited 20 Artists and Celebrities to place their time, talent and passion into creating 'Dogs of Art' to be auctioned off with the key purpose of raising money for Starship - National Air Ambulance and this year the Auction managed to raise record takings of $27,000!

Each one of the Dogs of Art had their own individual personalities and stories to tell and with the amazing support of media plus the wonderful word of mouth that occurs when something exciting and for such a special cause is going on, Parnell was able to celebrate Chinese New Year with the best results yet for Starship.

Thank you to Barfoot & Thompson Parnell for sponsoring this wonderful Exhibition and to Jonathan Grant Galleries for hosting the Live Auction.

Joseph Cederwall Review: NZSO Plays Zappa

The first of the NZSO’s Shed Series concerts at the more informal and intimate space of Wellington's Shed 6 last Friday night featured music composed by, or with a connection to Frank Zappa.

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

To be good at one thing is impressive; to be so versatile across a range of genres is truly exceptional. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar. Now it is a case of waiting and looking forward to seeing what they manage to conjure up for next year. More>>

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
