Saturday & Sunday July 21 & 22
Karamea Community Centre (RSA)

My name is Catherine and as my two months as artist-in-residence at the the artist's bach comes to an end, I am inviting interested people to join me for a series of free activities on the last weekend of the school holidays at the Karamea Community Centre (RSA).

Writing and painting “place”
children's and young people's writing and drawing/painting workshop
This workshop will begin with a small slide presentation of some of my painting and photographic artwork and pictures of some of the wildlife I live amongst and have encountered in Australia, followed by a short introduction to the work I've been doing while I've been in Karamea. Participants will then be encouraged to write about or draw/paint a place that is special to them – somewhere close to home or further away – and at the end of the day we'll share our stories and pictures.

Bring paper for writing and/or drawing and painting, pen and paints/pencils.

pop-up exhibition and sale
I've brought a number of mainly A3+ size limited edition works on paper artwork relating to my previous three visits to Aotearoa New Zealand, in 2003, 2016 and 2017, and will be offering them for sale at much lower than usual prices, with all proceeds after printing costs (mostly $40) to be donated to one or more worthy local causes. Come early to secure a bargain, and hear about the background to the works (11.30), or drop in any time during the day for a look and a chat. Any works sold will be available to take at the close of the exhibition.

Last dinner
Bring your own drink and a plate to share (vegan or vegetarian encouraged but not compulsory! :)) People of all ages welcome to this casual event.

8.30 onwards
Dancing party
Stay around after dinner or turn up specially if you like dancing. I can't promise a top-of-the-range sound system, but it will be more than adequate to get you on your feet! Don't be shy; discreet lighting guaranteed.

Please let me know if you are interested in any or all of these activities by contacting me by phone, text or email. I will also then be able to contact you if there is any further information. If I don't respond straightaway, it means I am on the Heaphy but will get back to you by the 19th. catherine [dot] p [dot] mooreatgmail [dot] com, 0211449983
