**Thistle Hall invites you to celebrate the season at our annual Community Gallery fundraiser.

6-9pm Friday December 15th
Thistle Hall Community Gallery
293 Cuba Street, Wellington

Thistle Hall Community Venue invites you to the annual $100 Art Sale. Come and have a drink with us and meet the people who are part of this special community place.

The show itself is a three hour window of opportunity, where art lovers can race into our gallery and buy anything on our walls for only $100! It’s a time to celebrate the season with the people of Thistle Hall and Cuba Street, support local artists and do your Christmas shopping.

This is the second $100 Art Sale Thistle Hall has organised, the first one in 2005 raised enough money to buy us new gallery lighting! This year we are doing a 50/50 split with the participating artists, and any money raised for Thistle Hall goes into re-instating our Arthur Street Gallery window to make the most of the new bypass.

Our $100 Art Sale is cash and carry and is only. The doors open at 6pm and there will be a mad rush to view and buy art at this crazy discount price!
So come, shop, and support your community gallery and Wellington’s self starters, the artists and organisers who make this place so special!

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>


Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
