Colours are brighter when the mind is open. -- Adriana Alarcon NorthTec Rawene Open Day This exciting exhibition was the culmination of the second semester work of the certificate of applied arts and the first year of the diploma of applied arts students. The work was originally formed from course-related briefs from which the students then pursued their own interests working in a variety of mediums including stone, wood, painting, cer- amics and electronic media. I am always in awe of what these students achieve and never disappointed. In her installation, Alex- andra Gateja has creatively used gallery space and a wall to communicate colour, shade, shadow and tone. Tavis Jacques works in stone encompassing his Celtic ancestry. Eva Walker s crescent of 16 monuments of Onewa stone suggests a journey from an ominous world to that of enlightenment. Liz McAuliffe creates clay relics to hold the memory and form of nature. A stunning show! The Eden Series at Vil- lage Arts Louisa Geddes captures a kaleidoscope of natural and unified harmony in tableaux of rich pictorial textures. Her paintings, like tapestries, create a comforting environment within the gallery space. Within each work we visually flicker between flashes of pri- mary colour and expressive line work occasionally stum- bling across a camouflaged serpent or tree-frog. Louisa has the unique ability to capture the appear- ance and varied textures of the foliage and flowers in her Garden of Eden...a ndn ot an Eve in sight! Exhibition ends December 8. Upcoming events not to be missed Fundraiser for the Kerikeri Kindergarten: Another highly anticipated silent auction of small canvases created by local artists at Neon Cafe ´ next to the Advocate office Kerikeri opening November 28, 6pm to 7pm -- ends December 2.

NorthTec Rawene Gradu- ation Show at Hokianga Gal- lery Rawene now open until December 12. Haiku at Kaan Zamaan Hokianga artists Rachel Miller and Robin Anderson have teamed up again to present another fabulous exhibition of fine works. Rachel s family drawings are delightful visual essays. Her abstract prayer paintings centre on the tensions of compositional order versus the intuitive gesture with Rob s exquisite pottery adding the perfect complement. Exhibition ends December 11 Max Factor at Turner Centre The inimitable Max Cryer with pianist Kim Naden gave an intimate, hilarious per- formance in the Theatre Bar. We were treated to songs and narrative highlighting some past and present eccentrics -- Spike Milligan, Professor Higgins, Dame Edna Everage and her Desert Erata and two songs out of 85 submitted for our national anthem; one included the word nostrils and the other corn and cornfields . .A superb Sunday afternoon entertainment!
