Wobbly Arts Exhibition: 2nd to 8th September 2005, Dunedin

The Dunedin “Wobbly Arts’ exhibition organisers and exhibitors are looking forward to the formal opening of the Multiple Sclerosis Society’s first national art exhibition on Friday 2nd of September.

Event organiser Beverly Glenn is delighted to announce it will be open to the public from Saturday the 3rd of September through to Thursday 8th of September from 10 am till 4.00 pm at the Dunedin City Council's Community Gallery in Princes Street. There will be no entrance fee.

The Otago MS “Wobbly Art Exhibition” is timed to coincide with National MS Awareness Week from the 2nd to the 8th September 2005.

Beverly has been delighted with the response from artists with multiple sclerosis from throughout New Zealand. A New Zealander living in Australia has also sent work for the exhibition.

Sixty-five pieces of work from 21 artists will be up for sale, with the youngest artist, Kate Thompson, 9 years old from Wellington, a special guest of the society on opening night.

Another special guest artist will be local Otago Peninsula photographer Tudor Caradoc-Davies, a previous patron of the society and the only artist without Multiple Sclerosis.

Beverly says “I’m excited about how well the exhibition has gone so far, and I’m planning that it will be held annually from now on”. She envisages future MS exhibitions travelling throughout New Zealand, offering inspiration to artists with multiple sclerosis and their supporters.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
