GREAT EXPECTATIONS

Opening 5.00pm Monday 23 November.
Then open daily 10.00am to 6.00pm Tuesday 24 November - Saturday 28 November.

This exhibition is exclusively for emerging artists/designers/photographers/textiles/fashion/jewellery. Our aim is to showcase new graduates across all the design fields. We intend to create a "friendly" welcoming exhibition, of tremendous vitality and diversity. Not only will there be stunning art and photography on the walls, but fashion, jewellery and furniture items. Everything will be for sale, in fact we are testing the market for a permanent retail space along these lines.

We have been overwhelmed with the reaction from graduates wishing to show their work, and the standard is very high, and very exciting. There will be something for everyone, from small original items to larger works of art.

We welcome everyone!

Please see http://www.thistlehall.org.nz for more information.
