7 WAIHEKE MARKETPLACE, JANUARY 5, 2011 NEWS Wine and art mix at show Exhibition: Artist Kelley Diener with her Sauvignon Bloke painting and limited edition Kennedy Point wines. Limited edition: Kennedy Point wines with Big Red Syrah, Sauvignon Bloke and Rock Oyster Rose labels based on original paintings by Kelley Diener. By LYNDAL JEFFERIES An artist is donating the profits from the sale of a limited series of summer wines to leukaemia suf- ferer Sahara Adams. Kelley Diener has joined forces with Ken- nedy Point Vineyard to create a series of labels for three of its summer wines called Sauvignon Bloke, Rock Oyster Rose and Big Red Syrah. They will be for sale alongside an exhibition of paintings titled Eat, Drink and be Merry at the vineyard on Donald Bruce Rd on January 8 and 9. At the opening on January 8 at 4pm, wine and food will be paired with the paintings. If celebrated properly, the audience will com- plete the exhibition by becoming the merry' portion of the title,'' Kelley says. The paintings from which the wine labels were created will be dis- played alongside the wines. I spent the winter learning more than I ever wanted to know about the wine industry and have expanded my taste buds for red wine.'' Kelley's Orapiu studio at 11 Anzac Rd is open for anyone wishing to stop by and watch me putting on the finishing touches''. Phone 372-3472 first. Email kdiener@7355@ gmail.com for invitations to the Kennedy Point opening. February start for canopy fix Due to be demolished: The old canopy at Matiatia wharf will be replaced by a new cantilevered version in February. The replacement of the old canopy at Matiatia wharf has been postponed be- cause of the high usage of Matiatia ferry terminal over the festive season. A new cantilevered pedestrian shelter next to the pick-up and drop-off area was due to be installed in late July, according to a transport report tabled at the July meeting of the former Waiheke Community Board, but it was delayed. Roading manager Reg Cuthers says the work was rescheduled for November. However, given the activities on the island leading up to Christ- mas it was prudent that we gave some relief to our com- munity as well as those visiting Wai- heke.'' The project will go ahead in February, Mr Cuthers says.
