Call out for Eden art­works

Central Leader - - News -

Artists in Eden have pro­vided hun­dreds of pieces of work to the Mt Eden com­mu­nity over the past 21 years.

Now the group wants to see how much of it they can get back.

Artists in Eden are ded­i­cated to pro­mot­ing and en­cour­ag­ing lo­cal art.

Mem­bers meet each year to paint images sym­bolic of Mt Eden be­fore auc­tion­ing them off to raise money for lo­cal art projects.

They are hold­ing a ret­ro­spec­tive ex­hi­bi­tion in Oc­to­ber to cel­e­brate their 21st an­niver­sary and want to try to find as many past pieces as pos­si­ble to dis­play.

Or­gan­iser Sue Gar­diner says the idea of the ex­hi­bi­tion is to re- flect the chang­ing his­tory of both the event and the Mt Eden com­mu­nity through the art­works.

She es­ti­mates as many as 600 pieces have been cre­ated over the years.

If you have bought an art­work at an Artists in Eden event, please con­tact Sue as soon as pos­si­ble by email­ing edenarts1@gmail.com or phone 021-062-8799.
