Be there on opening night to witness the unveiling of the NZ Art Guild 2011 Collaborative Project "Light of my life". This is a fantastic, single artwork created by individual paintings by 56 New Zealand artists. The overall image of this artwork is kept secret, even from those participating it, until the opening night. To read more about the previous collaborative artwork projects go to www.nzartguild.co.nz/Collaborative-Projects
To coincide with this event 40 artists from around NZ (including me of course!) will be having a month long exhibition of original, diverse artworks depicting "Our Future" - Artworks include paintings, jewellery, sculpture, photography, print making and much more!
"Light of my life" will be auctioned off via Trade Me with the proceeds being donated to KidsCan. KidsCan is an amazing nationwide charity that is dedicated to eliminating poverty by helping meet the physical and nutritional needs of disadvantaged NZ children, so they can reach their full potential in life. They have several different programmes including Food for Kids, Shoes for Kids, Raincoats for Kids, Warm Kids (providing beanies and thermal tops) and Cool Kids (providing sun hats).
