The Mata­mata So­ci­ety of Arts is once again hold­ing its Mem­bers’ Ex­hi­bi­tion along with the work of guest artists at the Mata­mata Me­mo­rial Cen­tre from Oc­to­ber 14 to 16.

Guest artists this year in­clude Ca­role Hughes of Cam­bridge who is well known for her fig­ures and cafe scenes, John Hoby from Toko­roa who is an ab­stract painter and Ja­nine Har­bot­tle, a pot­ter from the Thames Coast.

An art award worth $500 is up for grabs for an emerg­ing artist who cre­ates a work of art un­der the topic ‘‘The Storm’’.

The Mata­mata Needle­work Group will be dis­play­ing some of their work as will the Waikato branch of the New Zealand Cal­lig­ra­phers.

Young artists from Mata­mata Pri­mary and Mata­mata In­ter­me­di­ate schools will also have work on dis­play.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will be of­fi­cially opened by Char­lotte Gi­b­lin of the Wal­lace Gallery at a wine and cheese evening on Fri­day night at 7.30pm to which mem­bers of the pub­lic are wel­come.

On Satur­day at 1pm, Camp­bell Smith artist and play­wright from Hamil­ton will ad­dress mem­bers and the pub­lic.

Camp­bell is a wood en­graver who is known through­out New Zealand.

He has been in­volved with na­tional or­gan­i­sa­tions over the years and is a long stand­ing Hamil­ton art iden­tity.

The Sto­ry­teller will once again have a dis­play of up to date books for sale.

Demon­stra­tions will be held on Sun­day at 1pm in­clud­ing fabric work with Shirley Frew, card making with Alex Ran­drup and pa­per­mak­ing with Mary Cullen.

The ex­hi­bi­tion closes at 4pm on Sun­day when all work must be up­lifted.
