Collette - finalist and People's Choice award Estuary Artworks 2011, Uxbridge Gallery Auckland

Collette - finalist and People's Choice award Estuary Artworks 2011, Uxbridge Gallery Auckland

Finalists have just been announced for the Estuary Artworks art awards for 2011. The winner will be announced on Thursday 10th February and Collettes piece titled 'The Key' is one of them.
The exhibition runs from 11th February - 9th March 2011 at the Uxbridge Creative Centre Gallery in Howick, Auckland where Collette is originally from.

Uxbridge Creative Centre invites you to join us at the opening of the Estuary Artworks 2011 finalists’ exhibition, and the announcement of the overall winner, this Thursday 10th February at 6.30pm.  This significant art competition aims to encourage the wider Auckland region to recognise the importance of the Tamaki Estuary and highlight its severe pollution issues.   One work will be selected as the winner, chosen by our panel of three judges, with the artist receiving $8,000 and the opportunity to have a solo exhibition at Uxbridge Creative Centre in 2012.  This exhibition is the jewel in our crown at Uxbridge and we would love the public to come along and get involved - not only by attending the exhibition, but also participating in the numerous public programmes accompanying the event.

 

In addition to the overall prize, there will also be a People’s Choice Award, which will be decided by the general public.  Visitors to the exhibition will be able to vote for their favourite artwork and, in addition to a gold coin donation, go into the draw to win a free class at Uxbridge in Term 2!  The donations will be totalled and then matched by Uxbridge Creative Centre, the sum of which will amount to the People’s Choice Award prize.

 

This is fun for all the family, with numerous public programmes to keep the young and old entertained, as well as interactive elements in the exhibition.
