CAN-e-News Thursday 19 July 2018

It’s always a great pleasure to send out the ‘news’… especially when there is always so much that is ‘new’ at the CAN!

NEW… to the shop is the CAN’s latest fundraiser, limited edition, hand screen printed T-Shirts and Skivvies for cat loving kids! Made from soft 100% cotton, in various colours and sizes these are a steal at just $15 each.

NEW… also to the shop is the brand new sister book to ‘I Hope You’ which is called “I see a Girl” and contains a beautiful collection of etchings to accompany inspiring and uplifting prose by local artist Rachael Stone. These books are aimed at young girls, to inspire confidence and promote a zest for life! Also a perfect gift for Mums, Aunties and Grandmothers, they will bring a tear to your eye. We love them! Priced at just $25 each.

NEW… to the Main Gallery is the wonderful exhibition ‘Hawke’s Bay Art Guide Uncovered’, a celebration of beautiful work from the creative people who call the Hawke’s Bay their home. Some smaller works have generously been donated to the CAN – all are for sale, and all funds raised will help support the work we do for established and emerging artists across the Bay.

NEW…. to the Small Gallery; a special treat is in store for you in the extension of our Mid-Winter Art and Craft Market. It proved so popular over the last two weeks in the Main Gallery that we could not bear to wave it goodbye! Browse the new mini-market and indulge in some handcrafted treasures, on show until 2 August.

NEW… two micro-exhibitions in the foyer for the month of July; Dali Susanto’s distinctive small works in pen and ink, and city-scape paintings by Shelley Riddell. Shelley’s quirky and original paintings are selling fast! New work is due in TODAY do don’t delay!

NEW… don’t forget there are plenty of new Term 3 creative classes to choose from; one day adults Saturday screen printing, weekly weekday screen printing, Saturday linocuts, After School weekly Cosplay Sewing, and of course our new Friday sewing group “Sew with the Flow” for those that want to sew their own projects in a communal, friendly atmosphere.
