Among the flowers and plants at some of the unique gardens open to the public on November 12 and 13 they will find Waiheke artists working at easels or creating and displaying sculptures. Many artists are inspired by the beautiful surroundings of Waiheke and at this year s two- day, self-drive tour of 12 private gardens they will give visitors a sneak peek at their art practice and an opportunity to buy their garden-themed artworks. Exciting sculptural displays will include a live body cast being made by sculptor Olivier Duhamel. The new Waiheke Art in the Garden exhibition has been spearheaded by the trust s new safari co- ordinator Michelle Bar- ber. Michelle has a degree in Art History from the University of California at Santa Barbara and loves the local Waiheke art scene . We wanted to give artists the opportunity to display and sell their works and also give visitors the opportunity to see them at work. We envisage artists working in up to seven gardens, with displays of paintings on easels under gazebos and gar- den sculptures placed among the plants. There will be a special preview function of the Waiheke Art in the Gar- den exhibition on Friday, November 11 from 2pm to 7pm. Visitors will be invited to tour the art gardens and then con- vene for a preview drinks function at the home of Chris Reeve and Jackie Kerridge. Tickets for the art pre- view are $20 and can be purchased from October 5 at Waiheke Take Note or the Waiheke i-Site in Oneroa village, or online at www.waihekenz.com. All proceeds go to the Jassy Dean Trust. Earlybird tickets for the two-day SeaLink Jassy Dean Trust Gar- den Safari will also be on sale on October 5 and cost $25. Pre-booked tickets are available at www.sealink.co.nz. The Jassy Dean Trust helps sick Waiheke chil- dren and their families during a child s illness. The annual spring gar- den safari is its major fundraiser, attracting up to 2000 visitors. Everybody wants to be a Greek statue, says artist Cast from life: Olivier Duhamel will be creating a body cast from a live model as part of the Waiheke Artists in the Garden project at this year's SeaLink Jassy Dean Trust Garden Safari. Artist Olivier Duhamel will be coating a live model in moulding com- pound and creating a sculpture of a section of their body as part of the Waiheke Artists in the Garden project at this year s SeaLink Jassy Dean Trust Garden Safari on November 11 and 12. Olivier says: Body casting consists of cast- ing something like plas- ter or another more dur- able material into a mould taken directly from a person s skin. The result is a very realistic representation of someone s body or body part. From his Oneroa stu- dio Olivier makes casts of faces, hands, baby hands, torsos, backs, and pregnant bellies as well as small bronze figurines which he sells worldwide. He says the most common request is for a woman s bust. It seems that every- body wants to be a Greek statue. My customers include people from all walks of life, I even made a series of body castings for celebrity New York sculptor Jeff Koons. Olivier is delighted to be part of this new proj- ect for the Jassy Dean Trust whose annual safari raises funds to help sick Waiheke kids and their families. I think that a realistic statue of the human form fits per- fectly into garden settings, bringing a touch of classicism and an element of surprise.
