Waiheke Walking Festival 27 October - 4 November 2012 Composition and colour stand out National award: The Walker & Hall Art Award exhibition opens at the Waiheke Community Art Gallery in Oneroa. Organisers of the Walker & Hall Waiheke Art Award are promising a kaleidoscope of colour will be on show at Wai- heke Community Art Gallery. The award hosted by the gallery was estab- lished to promote excel- lence in art and is now in its eighth year. This year it attracted 65 entries. Award judge Mary- Louise Browne says the task of selecting just 25 for the exhibition was a difficult one but she is confident it will be an exhibition that the com- munity will respond to. What struck me dur- ing selection was the great strength of compo- sition of many of the works and the dramatic use of colour, she says. I was quite taken aback by the lively pal- ette used by many of the exhibitors. All finalists have entered new work and Ms Browne says she has chosen a selection of work from both estab- lished and emerging artists. The winner will receive the Walker & Hall $5000 premiere award and the judge will also select a work for the $1000 Zinni Douglas Merit Award and the $500 Michael Evans Award sponsored by The Skin Institute for a figu- rative work. Waiheke Community Art Gallery director Linda Chalmers says: We are delighted to once again host this national art award thanks to the generosity of Walker & Hall. It s an award that s open to all New Zealand artists and we hope many Waiheke residents and visitors will take the opportunity to visit the gallery over Labour weekend to see some of New Zealand s best new art on display and for sale in this colourful exhibition. The winner will be announced at the gallery on Saturday at 5pm at a function sponsored by Kennedy Point Vineyard. Waiheke Community Art Gallery is on the cor- ner of Korora Rd at Art- works in Oneroa. Phone 372 9907. Arty couples up for award Island artists: Michael Walker and Ellen Johansen from Waiheke are both finalists in this year's Walker & Hall Art Award, opening at Labour Weekend at the Waiheke Community Art Gallery. GALLERY OPENING Waiheke Community Art Gallery offers two other exhibitions this weekend. On Friday at 6pm, works by Waiheke ceramicist Penny Ericson and Whanganui glass artists Emma Camden and David Murray will be on display, as well as the Walker & Hall Art Award preview. For the first time in the Walker & Hall Art Award s history, three artistic couples have been selected as award finalists. The three couples, from Waiheke, Devon- port and Wellington, entered individual art works in the $5000 art award, which opens at the Waiheke Community Art Gallery this week- end. Judge Mary-Louise Browne, arts adviser to Auckland Council, will announce the winner on October 20 at the gallery at a function starting at 5pm. She says: It s certainly an unusual aspect of the award to have three couples not only enter, but be selec- ted as finalists for the exhibition. Gallery director Linda Chalmers says: We hope they will all take the opportunity to come to the gallery for the award announcement. The Waiheke couple, Michael Walker and Ellen Johansen, are well known to the gallery and have exhibited there regularly. The other two couples are Jonathan Organ and Jessica Pearless from Devonport and Daniel Unverricht and Angela Singer from Roseneath, Wellington. All finalists have entered new works that have not been exhibited before and the compe- tition includes a broad selection of work from established and emerg- ing artists.
