Among the 90 members who will be exhibiting are Lois Herdman, Denny Evison, Lesley Fairbairn, Jan Neighbour and Gavin Kee. Mana Arts Society is having a busy 30th year. Along with a show in Pataka in April, the Plimmerton-based arts group holds regular workshops -- many of which are booked up and have waiting lists -- and meets more than once a week. The group began with 10 mem- bers in 1982. It has 90 today. Over Labour Weekend, the society will hold its annual exhi- bition, with more than 100 pieces up for sale. Society president Denny Evison said everyone participating was excited and working hard to get their selected works finished. It s a busy time but we re determined for this to be a great advertisement for us. There s going to be something [at the exhi- bition] for everyone. Watercolours, pastels and oils are among those mediums on dis- play, although there will be mod- ern pieces. Deposits are accepted or payment can be made in full by cheque. Ms Evison is confident they will sell more than the 17 sold last year and expects visitors from across the Wellington region. The exhibition runs every day of the long weekend from 10am till 4.30pm, at the clubrooms next to Plimmerton Domain. Go to www.manaarts.org.nz. Artist says watercolour can rock By ANDREA O'NEIL Mana magic: Pukerua Bay artist Joy de Geus will lead a workshop on her unique blend of watercolour, batik and acrylic fabric painting. Don t be scared of watercolour painting, says a Pukerua Bay artist who will launch Pata- ka s new series of art work- shops this month. Joy de Geus brings a bit of rock n roll attitude to water- colour, which she says has a very conservative image and which most people won t try. A lot of people are afraid to touch it, she says. De Geus will lead a two- part workshop on October 20 and 27, teaching her tech- nique of layering watercolour with Indonesian batik and acrylic paint. It s getting away from the traditional boundaries. Like most batik art, the paintings will be done on fab- ric, which allows de Geus to use the vibrant fabric paint palette she loves so much. You can t get that from any other paint. It s my New Zea- land love of colour, she says. Overseas they say they can see the New Zealand colours coming out. While watercolour is a quick method of painting, the forethought required puts most people off, de Geus says. When you do anything like printing, watercolour and batik, you ve got to sit down and think and plan all the steps you re going to do. Workshop participants will be guided in the process by de Geus, and are asked to bring photos or images of land- scapes or still lifes to inspire their creations. The workshop, which costs $100, will be restricted to 15 places. To enrol for the workshop, contact Kiri Hiha, 237 3551 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
