Art Centre Helensville – June Newsletter

As a part of Auckland Festival of Photography (who have themed this annual event ‘Disruption’), Helensville Art Centre is holding a group show of local photography artists titled ‘Disruption Through an Internal Lens’. This will be our first Awards exhibition with the winner receiving $250 cash prize. A guest judge will be selecting the winner which will be announced at the opening.
The term ‘Disruption’ embodies various associations, physical, environmental, political and mental.
Our exhibition for this year’s Festival of Photography ‘Disruption, Through the Internal Lens’ implies the affects disruption has on our mental state. The internal world of the human condition is expansive and undisclosed. Life’s disruptions can perturb our inner selves altering our subsequent physical demeanour.
Imagery in this exhibition connote to a psychological variation of the theme Disruption.
All were welcome to the opening and awards event on 3rd June. It featured image ‘Secret Life of the Easter Bunny,’ by Victoria Logan, Stellanova Photography.
Matariki follows Festival of Photography with an exhibition in July. We invite all local artists to participate in this important cultural event. Artists can either enter to exhibit in our main gallery with artwork representing Matariki, or in our media room gallery which will be an installation of stars. For those of you who delve in crafts this is an ideal way to display your artistic talent. Stars can take on any media, from crochet to painting, sculpture, photography, knitting, collage or even jewellery! Please email manager@artcentre, or visit our website under events for entry form and details.
We will be running a Star Making workshop with Jo Dixey on Saturday 25th of June 10-1 to mark Matariki Festival. Jo will be using quilting methods to make Matariki stars. These will be included in the media room installation for the exhibition in July. Please email if you would like to book this workshop or if you would like an entry form for the Matariki exhibition open to all artists.
‘A time for communities to come together and celebrate’
Exhibition dates are 1st – 30th July.
