ARTS JUNCTION EXHIBITION
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.”
