PAIHIA COMMUNITY DESIGN CAMPAIGN Artists brave first public showing Quirky: Getting ready for the Stepping Out exhibition at Te Waimate Mission are, from left: Jodie Galbraith, Amanda Whitehead, Jen Tutton and Monika Welch. Also showing works are Maggie Brown, Maggie Hewitt and Megan Bentley. Some of the quirkiest art Northland has to offer will feature at Te Wai- mate Mission, the NZ Historic Places Trust property at Waimate North over Easter. The mixed media artworks incorporating acrylics, oils, collage and other materials and tech- niques -- will take centre stage in a one-off exhi- bition called Stepping Out. The name of the exhi- bition has special signifi- cance for those taking part according to Keri- keri artist Monika Welch, who is co- ordinating the exhi- bition. Much of the art that will feature at Te Wai- mate is the work of my students,'' Monika says. This will be the first public display of their work, so they're under- standably a little ner- vous.'' Encouraging her stu- dents' natural talent while building their con- fidence has been a key focus for Monika, who is excited about the quality of work they have pro- duced. I didn't really get into painting until about eight years ago when some friends asked me to do a couple of paintings,'' Monika says. I knew when I had completed the paintings that I had found my passion.'' Stepping Out with High Tea and Art at Te Waimate Mission Sta- tion runs from April 22 to 25 from 10am to 5pm. Enjoy a complimentary English high tea in the grounds of this gracious 179-year-old Georgian house; browse the art exhibition and take part in the Easter hunt with complimentary chocolate treats from Makana.
