Just opened is lo­cal Katikati artist

Kath Mc­Connachie’s ex­hi­bi­tion. The works ex­hib­ited are mostly oils and mainly fea­ture the South Is­land of New Zealand, where the unique scenery, light, colour and won­der­ful feel­ing of space and time­less­ness in these beau­ti­ful ar­eas in­spired her to put brush to can­vas. Af­ter re­tir­ing, a short trip around the South Is­land that went from a few months to al­most four years pre­sented the op­por­tu­nity and the in­spi­ra­tion for the work in this ex­hi­bi­tion. Kath de­lighted in the clear, bright scenery and could not wait to get it onto can­vas, if only for per­sonal plea­sure, hence the num­ber of smaller can­vases on dis­play. Date: On now.

Parkin­son’s Bay of Plenty is en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to join them for theirWalk for Parkin­son’s nextmonth and for a Gar­den Party.

“The Walk for Parkin­son’s is im­por­tant as it not only fo­cuses on the value of keep­ing ac­tive, it also pro­vides the op­por­tu­nity to sup­port the peo­ple in the area who are af­fected by Parkin­son’s,” Parkin­son’s BoP pres­i­dent Chris­tine Mer­cer says.

The aim is for 100 peo­ple to walk 5km from Sal­is­bury Wharf, Mount Maun­ganui, around the Mount and walk a col­lec­tive 500km to gen­er­ate sup­port for those af­fected.

Joe­lene Mor­ris of Parkin­son’s BoP also says the Gar­den Party was shap­ing up to be a great event.

“We are very priv­i­leged to have a num­ber of tal­ented peo­ple, who also hap­pen to have Parkin­son’s dis­ease, liv­ing in the Bay of Plenty. We have artists, wood-turn­ers and tex­tile artists. The Gar­den Party pro­vides us with an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity to show­case the skills of the peo­ple in the area who are af­fected by Parkin­son’s. We are also blessed to have gen­er­ous mem­bers, their fam­i­lies and friends who have do­nated their goods for sale or auc­tion or raf­fle.”

Hav­ing the art and creative work for dis­play and auc­tion pro­vides a wider au­di­ence with the op­por­tu­nity to walk in the shoes of those with Parkin­son’s, she says.

“There is a lot of ac­tiv­i­ties — horse-rid­ing for chil­dren, re­fresh­ments, mu­sic, and plenty of park­ing. At 12.15pm, the art works, quilt­ing and other cre­ative­works will be auc­tioned.”
