Christchurch Art Gallery Re-Opens

December 19, 2015

2015-12-19-12.56

Closed for five years due to our earthquakes, the Christchurch Art Gallery re-opened today. It’s so good to have our public art gallery open – it was a place I often went to and it was great to see some of my favourite artworks hanging on the walls.

Whole House Reuse Exhibition at the Canterbury Museum

June 8, 2015

collage

All of the items in the collage above were made from materials salvaged from a Christchurch red zoned house that was deconstructed very carefully for the purpose of this Re-use project. The materials were distributed to arts and craft’s people all around New Zealand. The works they created are now on display at the Canterbury Museum. If you get a chance go and see the exhibit as it’s quite inspiring and remarkable to see the amount of creativity and love that has been poured into this awesome project. To learn more visit the museum’s website and download the PDF that has all of the information about the project.

If you would like to purchase some of the items, visit http://www.wholehousereuse.co.nz/auction/ to learn more as the funds raised will go to Kilmarnock Enterprises and Rekindle.
