NZ Art for the NZ Shore Plover – Press and Preview Night

We would be delighted if you would attend our forthcoming preview night to view the art which has been donated by a number of NZ artists. This art will then be auctioned to raise funds for the NZ shore plover conservation project in New Zealand.

We are delighted that The New Zealand High Commissioner, Derek Leask, will host the preview evening which will take place at Suze in Mayfair on Wednesday 10 September from 6.30pm until 7.30pm.

Contributing artists are as follows: Elspeth Alix Batt, Sally Blyth, Tony Brown, Jono Carmichael, Jonathan Clark, Kay de Lautour Scott, Sophia Elise, Judy Ellis, Nancy Frazer, Mary Jane Kay, Chavah Kinloch, Steve Moase, Tania Verrent, Rae West and Graham Young. We hope that you will be able to meet some of the artists at the preview evening. In 2006 this event raised more than £7,000 for the Campbell Island Teal Appeal and this year’s is expected to raise an equivalent amount – hopefully more.

The auction itself (tickets £45 each to include a gourmet menu with kiwi “champagne” and wines) will take place on Friday 10 October at the Penthouse of New Zealand House. We expect the event to be a sell-out and places are strictly limited.

We are delighted, that thanks to the support of Crown Fine Arts, we have been able to bring over nearly 10 works from New Zealand and that Tom and Susan Glynn of Suze have allowed us to display the works in their private dining room for the month before the auction.

Please RSVP by emailing
or telephone Katherine Hersey-Meade on 01634 318825.

Yours sincerely,

Helen Campbell
The New Zealand Society in England
