art in matakana - mARTakana

Art and fundraising for a worthy cause - Hospice Warkworth and Wellsford.

I've been lucky to be invited again to submit work for this annual art show held in Matakana - a must-see place with a special vibe!

"the importance of the pink toy" is fresh off the easel and will be available at the show this weekend.

the importance of the pink toy - 900 x 600 x 35mm acrylic, graphite, charcoal

 We were house sitting looking after a particularly skittish cat. It tolerated us in the house but only started to interact when I discovered that this 'very important pink toy' really was very important... I could see Mitzy  watching me, thinking "it took you a week to work this out.."  After that we had many mad sessions tearing around the house. But only when she was so inclined..

More info on the show is at Matakana School Hall, 952 Matakana Road, Matakana.

Listen up, art lovers! Martakana 2018 opens on 19th January and promises some fresh and exciting work for your walls (or sideboard, floor or garden fence).

The three-day art sale in the Matakana School Hall will feature local favourites as well as artists from further afield whose work has never been shown at this exhibition.

Now in its twelfth year, Martakana is held in the Matakana School Hall and raises funds for Warkworth Wellsford Hospice. Artists are invited with a view to having a variety of media and styles, and a wide range of prices.

The exhibition opens at 10am on Friday January 19 and there will be a wine and cheese opening at 6pm that evening. Guests will be treated to wine and food featuring Puhoi Valley’s specialty cheeses. Entry is by donation and open to everyone.

The show will continue from 9am on Saturday January 20 until 4pm on Sunday, with free entry.
