Artists studios were inundated with visitors over the Queen s Birthday Week- end in the third Waiheke Winter Arts Festival and Open Studio Weekend, spearheaded by the Waiheke Community Art Gallery. Studios reported up to 60 visitors on both Saturday and Sunday with just slightly fewer numbers on the Monday. The car ticket proved really popular with car loads of festival visitors expressing how much they enjoyed talking to artists, seeing work in progress and watching the creative processes. Gallery committee mem- ber and liaison for the event Katie Trinkle-Legge says visitors provided positive feedback. David Wheeler of The Art- ist Goldsmith also com- mented how much interest and attention was shown by visitors. Many visitors were delighted to receive and wear this year s ticket, a bronze medallion cast by Jay Lloyd. Gallery director Linda Chalmers says the Out of the Box Auction and Wine and Cheese event on Sunday evening at the gallery was another highlight with guests enjoying Waiheke wines accompanied by Wai- heke Island Cheese Com- pany s artisan cheese. Ilya Volykhine s wine box achieved the highest price of $890. Handcrafted on Waiheke market at Palm Beach Hall on Saturday was another attraction and several stall holders reported good sales. Both artists and visitors have requested that we con- tinue to run this event at Queen s Birthday Weekend, Ms Chalmers says. Young lovers: Nanki Poo and Yum Yum, played by Alex and Vrnda Duncan, in the Waiheke Choral Society Production of The Mikado which has its last three shows this weekend. The Mikado almost ready for final bow The final performances of The Mikado are at Artworks Theatre this weekend. The Waiheke Choral Society travelling pro- duction has moved from Rocky Bay Hall to Onetangi and Palm Beach and will end its run in Oneroa. The snappy late 19th century Gilbert & Sullivan operetta has been tweaked with modern references that are probably funnier than the original script was in its day. Coupled with dazzling Japanese costume and a cast that sings its heart out, director Alan Knight and musical director Rich- ard Melville have ensured a great night out. The Mikado is at 7pm on Friday and 2pm and 7pm on Saturday. Phone 372 7724 for tickets or at the door, space permitting.
