What’s On

CAN-e-News Thursday 3 May 2018

After a whirlwind two weeks hosting the Children’s Art Expo during the school holidays, it seems a little quiet now here at the CAN. They came, they glued, they created; painted, cut, printed, glittered and glowed, drilled, melted, modelled and moulded, giggled and gossiped and left with huge smiles and gorgeous creations tucked under their arms. The new July time table will be published at the end of May, so keep an eye out for it and make sure to book early or you could be unlucky.

May’s Mosaic Masterclass workshop with Janice Corbishley’s on 19 and 20 May has a few places left, so don’t leave it till the last minute to book if you’re planning to come. Create your own piece of beautiful mosaic art to take home, make new friends and learn a new craft in the relaxed atmosphere of the CAN workshop.

Call in and buy a raffle ticket or three to be in to win this beautiful contemporary necklace by Twigg, valued at $29.95 and made from silicone. We’ve got plenty more, in different styles and colours in the CAN shop too!
Tickets are just $2 each or $5 for three. How could you resist?

Have you seen the new car parking arrangements in front of the CAN? Napier City Council has re-planned and re-built, and now we have oodles of parking spaces right in front of the building. Just avoid parking in the reduced number of yellow lined leased spots, and take your pick of the 50 newly created spaces!  Not free unfortunately, but oh so convenient!  Great for the CAN and no excuse now not to visit.

Can you sew?  We’re looking for a sewing whizz to teach at our weekly sewing classes. Many people would like to learn and we have three sewing machines and one over-locker just waiting for some action.  Contact bookings@thecan.co.nz if you can help.

Extended for another week is John Boyd-Dunlop’s makes-you-smile exhibition in the main gallery. If you need cheering up now the days are getting cooler, just come and see for yourself!  Two new micro exhibitions this month are the colourful paintings of Shirley De Luca and the detailed sculptured figures by Kim Lovell.  And in the small gallery is something completely different – Blair Collins ‘Reductio ad Absudum’ – where 3D printing meets science fiction.

Enjoy!
