Atelier exhibition and art sale open to public

October 2016


Atelier exhibition and art sale open to public

Supporting the Kristin Foundation Scholarship Programme


The creative works of more than 50 contemporary New Zealand artists will be exhibited at Kristin School’s Atelier Exhibition & Art Sale this October.

From 26-29 October, more than 150 artworks will be on display with every piece available for purchase. All proceeds go towards Kristin’s Foundation Scholarship programme, to support students who might not otherwise be able to access a Kristin education.

A Gala Opening Night on Tuesday 25 October will provide guests with the opportunity to meet a number of exhibiting artists and preview the collection of works on display. Tickets for the opening are $35 each and available to purchase from the school. The exhibition will be open to the public from 8am-3pm Wednesday 26 to Friday 28 October, and from 10am-2pm Saturday 29 October. A gallery of exhibiting artists and their works is available to view at kristinartsale.co.nz.

Among the exceptional creatives are two Auckland-based artists who have achieved recent success in New Zealand’s largest annual art awards, being named finalists in the 2016 Wallace Art Awards; they are Peter Miller and Ekarasa Doblanovic. Another who has been recognised for her recent work is Larisse Hall who was a finalist in the 2016 Parkin Drawing Prize. Another of the artists is Zheng Chi. Her works have received numerous awards and accolades at provincial and national levels. After a car accident in 2010 left her a paraplegic with metal plates in her painting arm, Zheng Chi has continued to paint and pursue her love of art. Often called the “Frida Khalo of China”, modern Chinese master He Duoling describes her work as “…a surreal road that only belongs to ZHENG Chi

To have artists of this calibre exhibiting at Kristin is an exciting prospect. From the Senior School students who study the creative arts within the NCEA and IB Diploma pathways, to t Junior School students who will be exhibiting their own work at the annual Toot Suite Visual Arts Show in the week prior to Atelier, the chance to view a diverse range of contemporary New Zealand artworks and to speak directly with artists - to learn about their creative process and professional practice – is an opportunity not to be missed.
