Since his return in 1990 he has been one of the most influential figures in the contemporary New Zealand art scene -- Linda Chalmers art gallery director THE works of one of the country s most important liv- ing artists will be exhibited at the Waiheke Community Art Gallery as he celebrates 50 years of his brand. Billy Apple s contribution to New Zealand art, both here and abroad, is immense , art gallery director Linda Chalmers says. As one of the Young Con- temporaries he was at the vanguard of British Pop, she says. In 1964 he moved to the United States where he showed alongside artists like Andy Warhol and Roy Licht- enstein. He later became one of the pioneers of New York conceptual art. His tours of New Zealand art galleries in the late 1970s are seminal moments in art history. Since his return in 1990 he has been one of the most influential figures in the con- temporary New Zealand art scene. A lesser-known aspect of Apple s practice is his long engagement with New Zea- land winemakers. He has produced works with Corbans, Collards and Villa Maria. This year marks 50 years of the Billy Apple brand. As part of the global celeb- rations, he has worked with Waiheke winemakers to pro- duce Billy Apple: Official Selection, a selection of local wines in a limited edition case. This is his first collabor- ation with Waiheke produ- cers. Each of the 50 cases in the exhibition is numbered to commemorate each year of the Apple brand, from 1963 to 2012. Each case contains a selec- tion of red wines from the 2010 vintages from the vine- yards of Kennedy Point, Man O War, Miro, Obsidian, Pea- cock Sky and Poderi Crisci. Ms Chalmers says: It s a real thrill for us to be exhibit- ing the work of Billy Apple on Waiheke. He is an inspi- rational New Zealand artist who engages on an inter- national level, and he is gen- erous in his support of the gallery. The exhibition will include a survey of Billy Apple s wine works, which is the first time all of them have been pres- ented together. It will shed light on the unique way he has worked with winemakers to explore the intersection between advertising, product design and contemporary art. A small catalogue will accompany the exhibition with a short essay by art critic and Waiheke resident Anthony Byrt, who has worked with Billy Apple on numerous projects. The exhibition opens on September 28 and runs until October 15. French night to help cinema Monday soiree: Waiheke French Club will hold a soiree at Artworks Community Cinema. A French soiree at Artworks Community Cinema will help add to the coffers of the cinema s going digital cam- paign. The community owned cinema has a $100,000 tar- get to get the digital equip- ment it needs to move into the 21st century. The fundraising drive was kicked off by John Hawkesby in July and so far just over $26,000 has been raised. Waiheke French Club is hosting a French evening at the cinema on Monday at 6pm to keep the fundraising momentum going. It will include a taste of French food, a glass of wine and a 7.30pm screening of the popular 2011 French romantic comedy Tous les Soleils -- All the Suns. Tickets are $25, including the movie, a glass of wine and delicious crepes made on the spot by Patrick and Ros- alie, along with other culi- nary preparations by club members. Organiser Danielle Fillion says the evening is the club s contribution to a great cause. Every dollar counts. Without our help, Waihekeans could very well lose their valued cinema. A warm welcome is extended to all. Enjoy meet- ing club members, who are a mixture of French-speakers from around the world and New Zealanders who share a passion for French culture and the French way of life. Tous les Soleils is a smart, feel-good comedy that has been appreciated by critics and popular with movie- goers. Mrs Fillion says: We strongly suggest you book ahead for this premiere screening on the island. Phone 372 4240 to reserve tickets for the September 17 evening event.
