St Clair Design

Last week when I called in to St Clair Design to take some photos to accompany the ‘soon to be posted’ interview, Dallas asked me if I’d like to organise a Winter Blues pick me up evening. Well she barely had time to take a breath before I said yes leave it to me!  I … Continue reading

Bendigo Valley Sports and Charity Foundation

THANKS to Bendigo Valley Sports & Charity Foundation for assisting with the cost of  the Gallery hire for our exhibition. With this  cost covered I can tick another essential ‘to do’ off my long list!  So now we have exhibitors, a gallery, a judge and advertising all in place. We’re still looking for two more … Continue reading

Our first sponsor

I heard from Radio Network tonight that they’re willing to give us some free advertising time on their network.  This is brilliant as with limited resources we need all the help we can get and really there’s no point having an exhibition if no-one knows about it!

Within a few minutes Janet pulls up in her truck and we wander indoors with Janet lighting the coal range, organising … Continue reading

WNMS – James, you’re the art reviewer for the ODT, a freelance writer, musician, and artist. Is one of these areas more important to you than the others? I’m also the ODT’s daily quiz compiler, and do a regular show on Otago University’s student radio station! It varies from time to time. As far as … Continue reading

Emma Chalmers

How often, when you’re wandering along a main street, do you stop to wonder about the spaces above the shops and their uses? Well today I had a glimpse when I climbed the stairs to the George St studio of Dunedin artist Emma Chalmers. Emma, a multidisciplinary artist working in painting, drawing, collage and kinetic … Continue reading
