Hul­la­baloo marks first decade

There’s quite a Hul­la­baloo in Cen­tral Otago this year.

Central Otago Mirror - - WHAT’S ON -

Some of the re­gion’s most talented artists are cel­e­brat­ing a decade of the Hul­la­baloo Art Space col­lec­tive in Old Cromwell.

The ar­ti­san artist-run gallery – one of a kind for South­land and Otago - was de­vel­oped by a few pro­fes­sional artists as an ex­hi­bi­tion space in 2006. The gallery now boasts 15 artists, who all take turns in its daily running. Hul­la­baloo mem­ber, sculp­tor, Me­gan Huf­fa­dine said ‘‘it all started from a group of peo­ple who were pas­sion­ate about cre­ativ­ity and hav­ing an art space where peo­ple can ex­hibit their work. Through­out that 10 years we’ve fea­tured as many as 30 artists at dif­fer­ent times from as far away as Dunedin, and from Hawea, Wanaka, Alexan­dra and Queen­stown.’’

A 10-year an­niver­sary ex­hi­bi­tion ‘All That Hul­la­baloo’ at the Lakes District Mu­seum, which brought the gallery’s works to Ar­row­town, will be held un­til Sun­day: ’’We wanted to take our work be­yond the lo­cal area into a larger ex­hi­bi­tion space so peo­ple get a more in depth view of each artist’s work,’’ Huf­fa­dine said.

The sec­ond ex­hi­bi­tion, ’Past and Present’, will be held at the Hul­la­baloo Art Space from Au­gust 29 un­til Septem­ber 17. This will be an in­vi­ta­tional ex­hi­bi­tion of artists past and present to cel­e­brate the decade-long mile­stone.
