ABOUT THE ARTS with Mike Nettmann There is no must in art because art is free. -- Kandinsky Rawene Playcentre Art at Boat Shed The Boat Shed is always a feature as part of my monthly trip to visit the artistic delights of the Hokianga -- great coffee, food and ambi- ence. Last week there was an added bonus here as the walls were covered with art by one to five-year-olds from the local playcentre. I am passionate about kids art and relished in being surrounded by happy, bright colours with a generous sprinkling of glitter. Some of the work here is remarkably good. One-year-old Skye Stevenson s daubs of red, purple and yellow took my fancy. Congratulations Rawene Playcentre. Working Title at Rawene Gallery What a delight to see work by art tutors. North Tec Rawene Applied Arts tutors group show is a definite must see. The exhibition is diverse incorporating all discip- lines and resonating sophistication. Sue Daly s four pieces are wondrous orchestra- tions of colour, texture and gestural comments with paint exploring all possibilities of the medium s potential. Maree Wilson has combined paintings with found photographs in an exciting wall install- ation with syntactical compartments that interlock visually and emotionally. Will Nga- kuru s magnificent hollowed out totara log, masterfully carved, inlaid with paua dis- playing two carved half spheres magically sus- pended at the centre of the work is a celebration to the artist s ingenuity and craftsmanship -- this work is of international standard. Glen Haywood astounds us yet again with another of his technically astonishing recreations -- a closed cir- cuit camera, challenging the viewer -- is this art or isn t it? . Harriet Stockman s video art installation compounds my non-comprehension of this art genre. Please someone explain what this art form is all about and when the power goes off is it still art ? Hmmm. The show also includes outstand- ing work by Andrea Daly, Claire Kaahu White, David Pullen, Kirsten Dryburgh, Lindsay Antrobus Evans and Rachel Walters. Exhibition ends Sept- ember 4. Harry Potter at Vil- lage Arts Harry Potter aficionado and artist Emily Glew has inspired a number of her fellow artists to create a magi- cal array of art works befitting the Harry Pot- ter phenomenon. Nit- wit! Blubber! Oddment! Tweak! will have Potter enthusiasts, of which I confess to be one, delighted, enthralled, amused and dare I say bewitched. From beauti- fully crafted wands and staffs by Travis Jacques to fascinating Tumble Weggs, Tuckee Birds and Snoggits by Jill Reilly to the enchanting Monster Books by Emily Glew this is a show with a dif- ference. While at Village Arts do take time to have a look at Marg Morrow s new photographic works -- stunning! Ilse Steidel at Origin This month Origin spotlights the creative fun and quirky felted pieces by Isle Steidel, one of the co-op s resi- dent artists. Origin in Kerikeri is always good for a visit.
