Westmere artists win Top Shop 2004 Award


Westmere artists win Top Shop 2004 Award (for Giftware and Homeware)

The New Zealand Retailers Association has recently awarded Edge City the
Top Shop 2004 award for Giftware and Homeware. Edge City is the gallery
outlet and workshop of artists Louise Rive and Chuck Joseph, located in
Westmere, Auckland.

Louise and Chuck work on site producing New Zealand inspired paintings and
ceramic art with images ranging from Western Springs Lakeside in Auckland to Hikurangi in Northland, from short tailed bats to pa sites. The ceramic work is
created, glazed and fired on site to stoneware temperature in a gas kiln.

"Edge City has proven independent art and commerce is a successful
combination. We use oil painting on canvas, wood and carved fired clay to
celebrate our view of the world."said Louise Rive. " It is very pleasing that the selling of genuine New Zealand product is being celebrated."

Edge City has been operating for 24 years and in early 2004 reopened
premises on the corner of Old Mill and Garnet Roads Westmere.

The Top Shop Awards, which took place on October 12th, are Auckland's
premier retail event, which are held for the purpose of 'Promoting
Excellence in Retailing'. These awards recognise excellent retailers in the
various retail categories and provide a benchmark for retailers to aspire
to.

Other finalists in the 'Giftware and Homeware' category included Stevens
Home and Giving (Botany Downs) and Mango Alley (Browns Bay).
