Resene is proud to be supporting the 17th annual NZ Art Show - this year with a twist! More than 150 emerging contemporary artists are set to inspire any art collector in this dynamic virtual exhibition.
This new initiative is the brainchild of the show as it embraces the opportunity to continue to support some of NZ’s hottest new artists on the art scene despite the limitations of Covid-19 lockdown.
All artists have been selected by a panel of experts, promising quality and talent deserved of any collection. Art lovers can be assured that they can purchase with confidence, liaising directly with the artists.
Visitors can explore new artworks by some of the show’s favourite and most successful artists including Jane Blackmore, Runa + Holly, Tanya Blong, Joel Hart and Nikki Corbishley while discovering the hottest and newest artists on the NZ Arts scene. Glass works by the talented Richard Landers (a crowd favourite at last year’s show) also feature, alongside contemporary photographic works, exquisite and traditional watercolours, gorgeous florals, and artworks that provoke thought and conversation.
Go to artshow.co.nz where you can browse and purchase hundreds of original artworks all from the comfort of your own home from May 1st. Show your support and help keep the arts alive and active in NZ!
I'm working on a travel story for Stuff about the things that have surprised returning Kiwis about New Zealand. If you have recently returned from overseas or know someone who has, it would be great to hear about the things that have stood out for you, for better or for worse. Whether it's to do with the weather, the cost of things, the public transport, the food, the housing, the people or something else entirely, we'd be keen to hear about it. Please remember that your comment may be included in the article, unless you say you don't want it to be. Thank you.
Have you ever had a pest problem? I used to have a pet rat. They are smart, affectionate, clever little things. I'd never want to cause one unnecessary pain or suffering, which is why we've chosen to manage pests in our home with traps. It's not ideal, but it's better - and safer - than poison. I've done a little research on humane, effective vermin control during the wet months, when they like to come in from the cold. Take a look:
An Australian man, who has a job lined up in New Zealand, and plans to buy a house with his Kiwi partner had his application to enter the country declined. One woman even went to Japan to get her husband after Immigration New Zealand rejected his applications. She was finally successful. What are your thoughts on this?
