Secret Garden at Loft This is a collection of 12 photographs in which Jen- neke Vandenberg-Dodds has masterfully captured mom- ents in time highlighting the natural forms in plantlife in her garden and exploring the relationship between light and colour. Exhibition ends Friday. Kerikeri School of Music at Frontline Ten of Reese Hellmondol- lar s clarinet and saxophone students performed an enter- taining programme of popu- lar music with confidence. The clarity and beauty of tone each student produced is testament to Reese s tutoring skills. These concerts are so important to the development of performance for all students and always a pleasure to attend. Natures Tapestry at Kaan Zamaan Beverley Cox is back with a pleasing exhibition of new work highlighting her draw- ing and painting skills defin- ing her affinity with nature and its boundless beauty. In this exhibition one can experience the artist s pro- cess from drawings to the fin- ished painted artwork. Exhi- bition ends on Sunday. Beyond the Shadow of the Harpagornis at Wil- liams House Gallery This is an exhibition of handprinted lithographs by James Radford. The works are highly accomplished with meticulous attention to detail. James comes from the Ruatangata Lithograph Stu- dio, a facility specialising in traditional and contemporary stone lithography, located 10 minutes from Kamo. Ph (09) 433-5736 or email therock- email@example.com. Jill Cottle & Students at The Centre Another fabulous lunch- time concert with delightful piano music from Jill s tal- ented students. Each piece was performed with skill and confidence conveying the students enjoyment and rapport with the music. We are so lucky to have such skilled and dedicated tutors like Jill in our community -- and such wonderful young talent. Next lunchtime con- cert is on Friday. 150 x150 at Art Upstairs This popular show of diverse small paintings is worth a visit especially with Christmas looming. This year all works are on stretched canvas -- easy to hang with no framing required or just free- stand on the mantelpiece. Paintings are priced at $150 each. Exhibition ends on Friday. The Harbin Series at Art at Wharepuke These works by Mark Graver were inspired by a trip to Harbin in North East China and relate to Chinese calligraphy. Mark s skillful use of negative and positive shapes together with the way the collection is hung creates a complex arabesque with dynamic choreography and rhythmic balance. Exhibition ends November 28. Fiona Pears At The Cen- treFiona returned to the Far North after a two-year absence and has once again wowed her audiences with her fiery, passionate music. She is very capable of inter- preting most genres of music from celtic to swing to classi- cal to Latin delivering delicious sweet tones from her violin. Her energy on stage is intoxicating and she easily captures her audience in her glorious musical web. A superb performance. Congratulations To Bryn van Vliet who has been accepted to study jazz saxophone at the New Zea- land School of Music in Wel- lington -- we are proud of you and wish you success.
