By GILL ALCOCK An exhibition at Wai- heke Community Art Gallery celebrates the colours and themes of the Kiwi lifestyle. Voyagers is the work of a group of artists inspired and influenced by their place in the Pacific. Included are figurative paintings by Daniella Hulme, botanical works by Sylvia Marsters, colourful works of the coastline and summer lifestyle by Rachel Olsen, a pop art invitation to a feel good New Zealand by Shane Hansen, works that explore contempor- ary Maori issues by Tracey Tawhaio and dreamscapes by Tanya Blong. Wall sculpture in metal and glass is pres- ented by Rudy Van de Pol, Chris Van Doren and Jenny McLeod, while John Ecuyer exhibits 3D work crafted in wood. In the Small Gallery, artists with studios on the Waiheke Art Map reveal new works as an introduction to their studios. Additions to the map are Paula Richa, Danielle Fillion, Ellen Johansen and Michael Walker. The Annex profiles bronze sculptor Oliver Stretton-Pow. The pieces are reminiscent of times gone by, the Renais- sance, scientific enlight- enment, worldly naviga- tion, secret guilds, and ritualistic, even subvers- ive behaviour, gallery director Linda Chalmers says. The exhibitions open this Friday at 6pm. The gallery is at Artworks, corner of Korora Rd in Oneroa. Festival focuses on sustainability TICKETS Visit www.wrt.org.nz or go to the Waiheke Resources Trust office at Artworks, or phone 372-2915 for tickets or more information on the week-long festival and ticket sales for the two events. A festival showcasing sus- tainability initiatives opens at Artworks on Monday and runs to January 22. The first event of its kind, the Waiheke Sustainability Festival, will showcase food and drink producers as well as products and services that encourage individuals and businesses to reduce their impact on the environment. Organiser the Waiheke Resources Trust is including two ticketed events. The first is Ready Steady Cook -- Waiheke Style at The Goldie Room on January 20. It will fea- ture local personalities using locally produced food, battling for audience approval. Tickets are $35 and include a glass of local wine and canape ´s. A cash bar and snack menu will be available on the night. The doors will open at 6pm for a 6.30pm start. The second is a Pecha Kucha evening at Artworks Theatre on January 21. It will feature eight speakers presenting small talks about their work and sustainability issues. The ticket price of $25 includes a glass of wine and snacks. A cash bar will be open on the night which opens at 7pm for a 7.30pm start. SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT SOLUTION SETS SAIL A new group will lay out its vision for sustainable transport to and from the island at the inaugural Waiheke Sustainability Festival. The Waiheke Working Sail project plans to match the need for alternatives to fossil fuel-based transport with a revival of a productive working sail industry capable of providing a livelihood for local young people. Project members will be giving an introduction presentation at 7pm on Monday at the Oneroa Bowling Club. The evening will cover an overview of the project and ways to get involved, and Waiheke sailor and designer Bernard Rhodes will share his new ideas for a custom-made, wind- powered cargo ship. Group spokesman Andrew Watkins says: ''Waiheke Working Sail is the beginning of a journey back to a low carbon, low energy, coastal shipping future while creating boatbuilding apprenticeships and sailing training.'' The project was started last year, with the aim of reviving a Waiheke-based shipping programme using purpose-built vessels. ''It's still in its conceptual stage but has already brought together people with a variety of skills, from boat designers to RYA sail instructors, to working sail enthusiasts,'' Mr Watkins says. ''Ever-rising petrol costs have alerted many on the island to a pressing need in the future for alternatives to fuel-based transport. ''Although coastal sail shipping cannot hope to compete in the immediate future with fossil fuelled shipping methods, the timely pursuit of alternatives might just leave Waiheke in a strong position in the long term, as well as encouraging new business and trades,'' he says. This year, Waiheke Working Sail also plans to host historical re- enactments of shipping voyages around the Hauraki Gulf. Visit the website www.onewaiheke.org for more information.
