Opens Today - A4 Artfest!

Thistle Hall is a vibrant community centre in the heart of New Zealand's cultural capital. We provide a community hall, meeting room and Wellington's only community gallery showcasing a range of artists and crafts people, from the established to the emerging. Thistle Hall is located on the corner of Cuba and Arthur streets. The shows on at Thistle Hall Community Gallery are run by the artists who hire it.

On Now
23 – 28 NOVEMBER 2010
A4 ARTFEST: AN ART EXHIBITION BY DEAF AND HEARING IMPAIRED STUDENTS.

OPEN: 11.00 - 6.00pm daily.
CLOSING: 6.00 - 7.45pm Saturday 27 November.

Deaf and Hearing Impaired students from The Learning Connexion International School of Art and Creativity are pleased to present A4 Artfest - their 4th annual group art exhibition.

12 artists from around the country have joined forces to create a diverse and inspiring collection of artworks. With an open theme and a wide range of media to enjoy - including painting, printmaking, collage, 3D and digital media - there will be plenty to stimulate the senses.

In an interesting turn of events, this year’s exhibition will be celebrated not with an opening night, but with a closing night. Designed to coincide with another national Deaf event held later in the evening, it will be the perfect way to mark the conclusion of the exhibition. The closing night event will take place on Saturday 27 November - 6.00 - 7.45pm. We hope you can join us!

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 won the Non Fiction Award at the Montana New Zealand Book Awards in 2009, and has now been republished by Te Papa press.

Howard Davis: Controlling the High Ground

Stephen Johnson's raw and angry film not only poses important questions with scrupulous authenticity, but also provides a timely reminder of the genocidal consequences of casual bigotry and xenophobia. More>>

Howard Davis: Dryzabone - Robert Conolly's The Dry

After the terrible devastation caused by last year’s bushfires, which prompted hundreds of Australians to shelter in the ocean to escape incineration and destroyed uncountable amounts of wildlife, The Dry has been released during a totally different kind of dry spell. More>>


Howard Davis: Hit the Road, Jack - Chloé Zhao's Nomadland

Nomadland is perhaps the ultimately 'road' movie as it follows a group of dispossessed and disenfranchised vagabonds who find a form of communal refuge in camp sites and trailer parks after the economic contraction of 2008. More>>
