Artist's Heraklean event Marian Maguire is a world-class master printmaker, whose print stu- dio, PaperGraphica in Christchurch, survived the recent earthquakes She has since hosted artists' events to support others who lost work and studios. On Friday, Maguire will give a floor talk at Mahara Gallery in con- junction with her exhi- bition The Labours of Herakles. Maguire's series of 12 large colour lithographs and eight black and white etchings showing at Mahara Gallery has become the most suc- cessful touring show ever mounted in New Zealand'', said Mark Roach, the director of Exhibition Services. Mr Roach will bring Maguire to Waikanae for a special floor talk in the gallery. Floor talk by Marian Maguire, Friday at 11am at Mahara Gallery in Waikanae, all welcome, entry free. Art show exhibitors: Joelle Mills, left, Vinny Thompson, Michelle Retimana and Tracey Devlin-Bailey, who are among the Kapiti artists selected to exhibit at the New Zealand Art Show. Kapiti artists to fill the walls with diverse pieces A group of diverse and tal- ented Kapiti artists is preparing to exhibit at the New Zealand Art Show starting on Friday in Welling- ton. Oil painter Ronda Thomp- son said while most artists were able to submit three works, the New Zealand Art Show jury had selected a lim- ited number for single wall displays, which would enable them to exhibit more of their work. Among the Kapiti artists awarded single walls were Ronda Thompson, Adele Sous- ter, Bee Doughty-Pratt, Vinny Thompson and Debbie Gra- ham, with a solo panel going to Tracey Devlin-Bailey. Sculptors Michelle Reti- mana, from Waikanae, and Paekakariki's Joelle Mills will also have displays at the show. Rhonda Thompson works only in oils and is known for her ability to capture light in her land and cityscapes. Vinny Thompson works with clay and glaze and she said her work had taken a new direction after a recent visit to Southwards car museum. Her new theme was classic cars and motorcycles, glazed on to tiles, as well as bowls and tiles glazed with old villas and native birds. Mills, a sculptor in Hebel, will be showing three large pieces, one representing a matriarch and her family, called Famiglia. Another is a lily and the third is called Daisy Pole. Souster said she enjoyed creating work in a variety of media and subjects, but landscapes were the main focus of her work at this time. The effect of light on the landscape, and the details fascinate me so I am out early in the morning or evening taking reference photos and sketches to work from.'' Sculptor Retimana is sub- mitting three pieces. Papatuanuku's Tahei -- Earth- mother's Necklace -- a large wall hanging in stoneware clay, with pinch pot beads and hollow forms pit fired and smoked with natural elements to create smokey blacks and natural colours, held together with harakeke or flax and wire, Hector Dolphin Fluke and Whanau -- a stylised human form made from textured Raku clay. Graham paints mainly in oils on canvas from large portraiture, figurative, land- scapes to many other subject matters. While my work is generally realism it has concentrated detail only where I feel it is necessary to express the character of my subject,'' she said. The paintings Devlin-Bailey is showing include Wellington waterfront scenes and sparrows on old posts. Other Kapiti artists for art show visitors to lookout for are Vincent Duncan, Storm Davenport, Anita Weber, Rachel Goodman and Pukerua Bay artist Adele Hickford. The New Zealand Art Show is at TSB Arena on Queen's Wharf, Friday to Sunday.
