2. BRUSH­ING UP BER­RY­MAN’S

The Tribune (NZ) - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS - RICHARD MAYS

Beats, Bites & Brushes in Ber­ry­man’s Lane is back with seven more mu­rals to be painted on Satur­day.

Ber­ry­man’s Lane, the Palmer­ston North al­ley­way con­nect­ing Broad­way with Main St, is about to get brushed up some more.

In June, the Broad­way end of the ser­vice lane hosted Beats, Bites & Brushes, a fes­ti­val of art, food, fun and mu­sic that re­sulted in eight mu­rals be­ing painted down one side of the al­ley.

Now 220 square me­tres of wall at the Main St end is about to get the same treat­ment.

City Coun­cil plan­ner Kee­gan Aplin-Thane has or­gan­ised seven large wall ar­eas across from The Daily bar for Beats, Bites & Brushes in Ber­ry­man’s Lane Part II on Satur­day.

Tak­ing part in the mass mu­ral splurge will be artists from Auck­land, Welling­ton, Whanganui and Palmer­ston North.

‘‘Beats, Bites & Brushes has cre­ated so much in­ter­est among artists want­ing to be part of our mu­ral story,’’ Aplin-Thane said.

Lo­cal artist Me­lanie Christ­mas, painter of Te Manawa Mu­seum’s Church St mu­ral, will con­trib­ute one of the pan­els.

Three of the artists - Adore, Gasp and Haser are from Auck­land, Mike Marsh and Eli­jah La­mont aka Spa­cious­mind, are from Whanganui and Izzy Fuego is from Welling­ton.

Light­ing for the new art­works had been in­stalled so on Satur­day the artists would be able to work well into the evening, with Sun­day for fin­ish­ing off.
