Artists to showcase work Inspired by mountains: Paraparaumu artist Molly Barclay with her painting The North Approach, of Mount Ngauruhoe, from the north end of Desert Rd near Turangi. By TASHA BLACK Four artists have teamed up to exhibit their work at the Artelier Gallery at Lindale. The exhibition Bouncing off the Walls features work by Molly Barclay, Shirley Sutton, Dana Jackson and Val- erie Bray, who exhibits as Heloise. Barclay's pastel artworks and paintings are of roses, birds and moun- tain landscapes, such as her acrylic painting of Mount Ngauruhoe, from the Desert Rd in the central North Island. She estimates she has taken about 500 photos of the Desert Rd. I'm a great fan of the Desert Rd from an art point of view: the environ- ment is lovely.'' Sutton and Jackson have produced European-inspired works from trips overseas, and Heloise's Kiwi-inspired works include butterflies. You should be able to recognise all of their subject matter, even if some of it is a bit quirky, like Dana's cats,'' said Barclay. January 22 till February 14, Artelier Gallery, Lindale Centre, Paraparaumu. Dutch pianist back for fundraiser Country musician: Roger Tibbs will perform in Paekakariki with his band. Jazz and blues: Robert Scharrenborg has been playing since the early 1970s. Famous Dutch jazz/blues pianist Robert Scharrenborg is returning to Pae- kakariki for a fundraising concert with country musician Roger Tibbs. Concert organiser Mary Gow said Scharrenborg is an old friend from Europe who last played in Kapiti two years ago. When I heard he wanted to come back to New Zealand, I couldn't resist the idea of putting him on stage again,'' she said. The January 28 gig is a fundraiser for the five-part Mulled Wine classical concert series running from March to August. Scharrenborg has been playing and singing his way around Europe -- first in Holland, but later as far afield as Moscow and Prague -- since the early 1970s. His sessions with Amsterdam combo the Bourbon Street Unplugged Band are legendary and can still be viewed on YouTube, she said. New Zealand-born country music guitarist Roger Tibbs formed a band as a young man and entered several country music contests. Before long he was taking top honours at music contests across New Zealand. Performing on television in That's Country served as a springboard to a larger fan base and gave him exposure across the entire country. The concert would be an informal evening where people could listen to three or four sets and get huge value for money'', Gow said. Kapiti artist Sonia Savage will exhibit her paintings at the concert. Saturday, January 28, 7pm, Paekakariki Memorial Hall, The Pde, Paekakariki. Tickets $20 from email@example.com.
