Art not boxed in this time Boxless art: Stephanie Drew has thought outside the square with her creation for Pataka's upcoming Box Art Show. By KRIS DANDO The Box Art Show is on at Pataka again, with entrants this year not even encumbered by having a box to work with. Held for the first time last year, the dis- play is hosted by Friends of Pataka. Money raised from sell- ing the works will go towards an artist-in- residence at Pataka over summer. The brainchild of local resident Carolyn Wallace, this year's event has seen 52 people enter, slightly more than in 2010. Camborne graphic designer Stephanie Drew says she enjoys the challenge and loves seeing what fellow artists conjure up. While last year entrants were given a box that had to be the central component in their work, this year they had much more latitude. Guidelines allowed anything from a matchbox to a fridge in size. There are so many possibilities. I'm sure there's going to be some real interes- ting ideas around,'' Drew says. Her own box art has pushed the boundaries even further, being based around the emperor's new clothes' theme''. She has created three clay bows, which can be bought as a set or individually, that sit atop non- existent boxes. Wallace, meanwhile, will be continuing with her cow theme from last year, this time exploring the fart tax'' controversy. Tax appears as tacks'' in her work. The Box Art Show runs from this Friday through to November 6. Mana arts build on success Local art: Maggie Hazlewood shows off a piece by Stuart Nicol called Pauatahanui Inlet, which will be for sale in Mana Arts Society's annual spring exhibition. By KRIS DANDO Mana Arts Society is in good health. The club, based in Plimmerton, sports a healthy membership, more than 70 artists, and are approaching their spring exhibition with confi- dence. Last year saw 17 pieces sold and they hope to at least match that number, says Maggie Hazlewood. It's been a very busy year; really successful with getting new members, a wide variety of workshops, and having great artists come to tutor. There are a number of different styles being used by members. It's fascinating.'' Ms Hazlewood, well-known for her work featur- ing birdlife, has chosen three pieces to display in the exhibition. One, which she is still applying finishing touches to, is a striking work of a statue from a Norwegian park and is bound to be popular at the exhibition. She is careful about painting from photographs sourced on the internet -- through sites like Flickr -- because of copyright issues. Next year is set to be even busier for the society, with 30th anniversary celebrations including an exhibition at Pataka and a number of other events. The spring exhibition runs from this Saturday to Monday, 10am till 4.30pm each day, at the clubrooms next to Plim- merton Domain. It will feature plenty of local scenery, but also a diverse array of work done in oils, acrylic, pastels, watercolour and mixed medium. Go to manaarts.org.nz.
