Be a part of our project and help create the many 'faces' that make artistic Nelson/Tasman
are a group of NMIT Bachelor of Arts students - Dennah Lloyd, Frances
Dick, Gertrud Kaiser and myself, Chrissie Cleary who (as part of our
course) are organising an art exhibition to take place in G Space
Gallery, G Block, NMIT' on June 17-21 this year.
Our idea is to ask as many Nelson/Tasman artists as possible to take a
black and white photo of their face and then simply send it to us att.
to email. The self-portrait can represent the artist in any way they
choose; composition is open to individual interpretation, i.e. anything
goes, just as long as the submitted image is recognisable as a human
face! We're positively looking for quirkiness and originality, which
doesn't rule out wigs/plastic noses/funny hats - that kind of silliness J
(an important element of this project is subtle humour, it's not
meant to be deadly serious). Or if the artist prefers, they can submit a
moody, atmospheric image - that's good too - we're pretty much open to
anything (as long as it's predominantly a face shot). For enlargement
purposes (please see below) the photo must be a high resolution image.
The concept behind our project is the reversal of what you'd expect
to view in a Nelson gallery showcasing the artistic talent of
Nelson/Tasman - we choose instead to reveal the physical face of the
individual artist (the human 'force') that exists behind every piece of
artwork, whatever medium. The creator as art and not the created piece -
the photo is the artwork.
Ultimately our final gallery display depends on the number of photos
submitted, but the plan is to create a number of large-scale posters
featuring the images in a grid-like pattern which will (at best)
completely cover the interior walls of G Space. We expect it to be a
visually exciting experience when confronted by a mass of human faces on
all sides; each uniquely individual portrait taken by the artist
themselves. It will be fascinating to see the response of both artist
At this stage we're looking for expressions of interest, so if anyone
would like to be a part of our project and help create the many 'faces'
that make artistic Nelson/Tasman what it is,
please reply to Frances - email@example.com, who will forward any
queries to the group. Once we have a definite list of interested parties
we will then set a final date for photo submission and contact each
It's important to note that we do require a fairly rapid response as
there is much to do before the exhibition opens on June 17. In the
meantime please feel free to ask any questions, many thanks. Kind
regards, Chrissie Cleary

Light Nelson ~ Get involved……….
Nelson is a new initiative that will be launched in July 2013 in
collaboration with Nelson School of Music and the Winter Festival.
Light Nelson is a collaboration of Art, Science and Technology to
develop works that respond to darkness through illuminated
installations, that will attempt to offer the viewer a moment of magic,
illusion, beauty, interaction and fun.
The event will take place in Queens Gardens spilling into Albion Square and the Chinese garden.
Although Light Nelson is an artist driven event it is fantastic
opportunity for people with a wide range of skills to get involved. It
also offers an opportunity for some unlikely collaborations between
people of very differing backgrounds and expertise as well as an
opportunity to learn new skills and to be inspired to follow a new path.
We aim to make this event unique and to reflect the diversity, the
community spirit, the artistic talents and the ingenuity of the people
of Nelson. We believe that everybody in this city has something to offer
this event. If you'd like to get involved just register on this site and we will e-mail updates and opportunities for you to be part of this event. http://lightnelson.org.nz

Call for Submissions - Kitsch Matchbox Studios
are now looking for a range of works for an upcoming group exhibition
that explores the idea of kitsch which will run for two weeks in August.
Fine art has often been handicapped by an internal elitism that
enforces a strict criteria of what art is or can be. Art that wasn’t
considered up to the grade was often labelled kitsch for being too
sentimental, marketable or having popular appeal. While this notion is
constantly being challenged today it is still a tradition that holds a
great deal of power. This exhibition will showcase a range of works that
brings a bit of kitsch into the gallery. The theme is up for broad
interpretation and works across a range of media will be considered.
The closing date for submissions will be July 17th. There is an
inclusion fee for the show, which means we take care of promotion,
posters, and an opening night event. If you are interested please submit
images to Caleb at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Closing date: Wednesday, 17 July 2013

University of Otago Arts Fellowships
his editorial notes for the quarterly Landfall in March 1959, Charles
Brasch argued that 'part of a university's proper business is to act as
nurse to the arts, or, more exactly, to the imagination as it expresses
itself in the arts and sciences. Imagination may flourish anywhere. But
it should flourish as a matter of course in the university, for it is
only through imaginative thinking that society grows, materially and
At the University of Otago we believe that our writers, artists,
composers, musicians and dancers have a vital role to play in the health
and well-being of our community - not just the University community or
the Dunedin community, but the wider community of New Zealand.We look to
them to offer us visions we cannot make ourselves; we rely on their
craft to generate the experiences which will challenge us, entertain us,
provoke and reassure us, and tell us who we are.
