Happy New Year!

We hope that you have a fantastic Christmas and New Year and that you even may have managed a break away somewhere nice.

2010 has got off to a roaring start for many of our members and we look forward to sharing their exciting news with you in the near future.

Until then we just wanted to share with you a couple of opportunities for artists that we have been notified about.

NZ Art Guild Member Dennis Clark has announced his teaching and workshop schedule for 2010. These classes are taught in Dennis Auckland Studio and fill up quickly so you must book. Follow this link for more information

NZ Art Guild Member, Award winning artist, Ingrid Boot is holding an art workshop on Friday 12th or Saturday 13th Feb. Come along to a one day workshop for tips and techniques to improve your art. Find out how to see, translate and transfer your inspiration onto canvas. Learn in a fun and relaxed environment, at the spacious light filled Gallery Q. Gallery Q is situated in the new Waimauku Village opposite the turn off to Muriwai. For more info contact either Ingrid or Lena at Gallery Q
Cost: $70 for the day (10 - 4) lunch included

NZ Art Guild member Steve O'Neill (Christchurch) is helping to organise "The Oarsome O’Fare"
What is it?
- It is the big fund raiser for all Christchurch based secondary school rowing clubs.
- A gala cocktail party and silent auction hosted by McKenzie and Willis (a large upper market furniture and home goods show room).
- Tickets: $15 incl wine and nibbles.
- When: 19th Feb 2010
- Each school sets up a stand to host their donated items for the silent auction.
- There is generally around 2000+ people that attend this fund raiser over a 3 hour period.
- The type of people attending generally are an artist target audience!!! Paintings were hot items last year.

What Steve is asking for (on behalf of St Bede's College) is donations of art work.
- Generally most of us have some art that hasn't sold, this would be a good opportunity to move these pieces and provide some exposure to this cliental.
- Artists can include business cards to be put with their artworks.
- Unsold art can be returned to the artist or retained for future fundraisers - this is up to the artist.

Deliver art to Steve by Monday 15th Feb:
115 Francis Ave, St Albans, Christchurch
