Lucy soon to leave the Gallery

Ashburton Art Gallery Media release


Lucy soon to leave the Gallery

You may be familiar with her face in the paper, heard her on the radio, or know her as the convenor of the Gallery’s art education programme. Sadly it won’t be for much longer as Lucy Sharp the Publicity Officer/Technician at the Ashburton Art Gallery will be leaving town at the end of the month.

“I have learnt a tremendous amount here at the Gallery, with it being such a small tight knit team you truly get to experience all aspects of working in the creative sector. This August marks my three year anniversary working here, and as much as I absolutely love my role, I am ready to move on, and sink my teeth into a new challenge.

The hardest people I had to break the news to (other than Shirin and Ali) were my loyal little Jub Jub members. I have built up quite a rapport with the group, some of whom have been coming since my very first session. So not running the art activities and seeing them every second Sunday will be something that I will miss the most.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone whom I have had the pleasure of working with over the last few years, as cliché as it sounds, it is the people that make this job so enjoyable and rewarding.”

Lucy is moving up to Christchurch in September with her partner Sam. With her qualifications and skills sets she has learnt from the Gallery she is looking to progress her career in the creative sector.

There has been something repulsive about PM Jacinda Ardern’s assurances that our joint 5 Eyes criticism of China’s actions over Hong Kong – and China’s harsh reaction – are all well understood on both sides. According to Ardern, it has been a case of us saying the sort of things we’ve said before, them acknowledging our need to do so, and then them responding much as we would expect them to do. All neat and tidy. Frankly, if all of this is merely virtue signalling on our part, and huffy declarations of independence on their part, then what’s the point of this diplomatic dance..? More>>
