Steam­punk style in art exhibition

Waihi Leader - - News - By TR­ISH COATES

Roll up, roll up, to the World Fa­mous Great Lit­tle Art Show — and it is free.

The Waihi Art exhibition will take place at the Waihi Me­mo­rial Hall on Queen’s Birth­day week­end.

On dis­play is a pro­fes­sional show­ing of ta­lented lo­cal artists’ work.

The three-day exhibition is open to view from Satur­day to Mon­day (2-4 June) — 9am to 4pm — mean­ing there are plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties to come along and en­joy brows­ing through the large va­ri­ety of works on show, and to de­cide which ones you sim­ply must have hang­ing in your house.

Lo­cal artists have been in­spired by the Steam­punk move­ment in their last lat­est exhibition. The medi­ums used vary from wa­ter­colour, pastels and acrylics through to mixed me­dia and some oils.

The works are too var­ied to list here but there is a sep­a­rate area fea­tur­ing Steam Punk paint­ings.

Th­ese paint­ings are part of the chal­lenges that the Waihi Art Group set them­selves dur­ing the year.

There is al­ways a spe­cial chal­lenge for the two ex­hi­bi­tions held an­nu­ally by the club.

The last chal­lenge was Fakes and Forg­eries With a Twist, which are now on show at the Waihi Mu­seum, in Kenny St.

It is a chance to buy a paint­ing that could be worth thou­sands of dol­lars in a few years time.

Note: Cash only to pur­chase art.
