The quality of the work is simply stunning (see below), so if you’re after an art bargain come on down to Founders Park, Nelson tomorrow at 6pm have a drink, pick your favourite and prepare to bid (auction starts at about 7.15pm).
The human Powerstaion Te Radar is running the auction so if nothing else it’ll be entertaining!
Oi You! 2010 is getting really close, the venue’s taking shape and we have an awesome weekend to look forward to.
This weekend October 16th & 17th is ‘Artists in Action’ when the majority of the finalists will be down at Founders creating their work ready for installation.
To set off what the artists are doing we’re working all hours to create an amazing backdrop for the event. This includes a whole heap of installations with massive Urban Art images and even a painted car!?
We also have some fantastic news; Chris Finlayson, the guy who painted the brilliant Aotearoa mural at Wakefield Quay, is coming along to create a installation of his own and to lend a hand to the younger artists.
So come on down; if you’re feeling inspired there’s a Scrawl Wall for you to create your own masterpiece or simply have a mooch, see art show that’s a bit different for Nelson and soak up the atmosphere.
