Awesome gallery We just want to say a few words of thanks to the Waiheke Art Galley, its board, staff and many volunteers for greatly adding to the quality of life that we enjoy here on Waiheke Island. Hardly a day goes by when the Waiheke Art Gallery is not involved or supporting in one way or another events that make our island a very special community in which to live. Its generous support of the artist community, SeaLink Jassy Dean Trust Garden Safari and the headland sculpture walk, to name a few, are the type of events that bring visitors from near and far to Waiheke Island and give a sense of community that is rare to find nowadays. We are so very fortunate to have their organisation a part of our life. Don Smith Timothy Maxson Oneroa Online reading I want to congratulate the Marketplace on its new improved website. I was very excited to get my first issue and read it like an e-book after registering online last week. It meant I could see the news quickly and effortlessly, book in events for the forthcoming week and watch some great video of the previous edition. I loved the ease of turning pages and ability to read the print at larger size if I wished, which is a boon for those with impaired vision. I feel it's a big step towards developing a positive, community inclusive future for the island. Jo Holmes, deputy chairman Waiheke Local Board Summer school of art Budding artists, jewellers and writers are enrolling now for the inaugural Waiheke Summer School run by the Waiheke Community Art Gallery in conjunction with Dunedin School of Art. Three courses will be taught over six days from January 9 to 14 in creative writing, drawing and paint- ing and jewellery. The Waiheke connection with Otago came about after textile artist Rose McLeod was an artist in residence at the art school. I raved about Waiheke so much while I was there that my tutor Clive Humphreys visited the island and when the gallery decided to start a summer school he offered the assistance of the Dunedin School of Art,'' Rose says. The summer school will be based in the Land's Barn at Korora Rd, where the gal- lery's artist-in-residence Sarah Guppy was based last year. The drawing and painting course will be hands-on exer- cise, using the physical and social characteristics of the island. The creative writing course has been designed as a basic tool kit for how to write well using imagery. It starts with an introduc- tion to poetry writing but work being produced may include narrative, prose poetry and short stories. The course will be taken by poet, playwright, fiction writer and artist Caroline Barnes. The jewellery course will focus on creating wearable jewellery from found objects and is being taken by Andrew Last. It's the first time the gal- lery has held a summer school and director Linda Chalmers says it is yet another way to involve the community in its art activi- ties. The idea of the summer school is that it will be fun, informal and low-tech, and use the outdoors as much as possible. Students will be encour- aged to be creative and use their ingenuity and the out- doors to create wonderful works for their own satisfac- tion,'' she says.
