What’s On

CAN-e-News Friday 7 September 2018

Please join us tonight, Friday 7 September, at 5-7pm, to celebrate the opening of established artist John Ruth’s exhibition of latest work. Enjoy live music and refreshments, and of course John’s dynamic paintings in the warm and cosy atmosphere of the CAN. A perfect place to meet your friends at the end of a rainy week!

While you’re here enjoying John’s celebration, pop in to see the Napier Secondary Schools’ Year 12 Art Exhibition. You will find plenty of emerging talent amongst the painting, photography, design and new media work on display in the Main Gallery and on the Mezzanine. The Napier schools are Tamatea High School, William Colenso College, Napier Girls High School, Napier Boys High School, Sacred Heart College, Taradale High School and Te Aute College. Support our young people by viewing their diverse work, there is a lot to see! On display until 13 September.

And if floral art is your thing, ex-florist Bev Doohan has a treat in store for you with her exhibition ‘Nature’s Bounty’, on display in the CAN foyer for the month of September. Bev produces beautiful and intricate studies of flowers in watercolour, which are for sale at very reasonable prices.                                                                                          

We have opened the bookings for October’s Children’s Holiday Workshops – places can be reserved for 48 hours.  Check out the website under October events for the full time table. 

We hope to welcome you soon, together with the return of the sunshine!
