Bush Telegraph - - Explore Pahiatua - By STEVE CARLE´

Af­ter col­lect­ing art­works from artist Ce­cilia Rus­sell, Tony Lozell from Pahiatua thought Tararua District should be fea­tured.

He com­mis­sioned Ce­cilia to cre­ate a Tararua word pic­ture as a se­ries of prints which he owns and mar­kets. Five years on and the art­work show­cas­ing the Tararua District has been com­pleted and a thou­sand copies printed for sale. Fol­low­ing a launch at the Tararua Club on May 16 these are avail­able for or­gan­i­sa­tions or busi­nesses to sell with pro­ceeds go­ing to youth char­ity. They re­tail for $39 for the posters or $395 for can­vas prints.
