First Thursdays

Haven’t looked at my emails since Thursday…and can you imagine my excitement when I see an email from First Thursdays saying I am one of 10 feature artists for their relaunch in December! I don’t think you realise how excited I am…really…

Now a larger quarterly event, First Thursdays is relaunching on Thursday 2 December 2010, with subsequent shows on the months of March, June and September 2011. K Road will come alive on a Thursday night with a craft market hosted by Foxes, poetry readings, live musical and dance performances, and DJs from George FM. And the highlight of course will be some of NZ’s most exciting emerging artists who will be exhibiting in a ten-day gallery show at Te Karanga Gallery. Plus, with all of St. Kevin’s and neighbouring shops opening late hours w/special treats and discounts on the night, this is an event not to be missed!

Deborah White from Whitespace Gallery made the final artist selections for the show at Te Karanga Gallery – which include: Alex Parker, Bobbie Grey, Claire Hey, Donna O’Donoghue, Eva Polak, Helen Williamson, Jesse Watson, Jun Arita, Michael Kennedy…and ME!

First Thursdays is a non-profit community-conscious collaboration of artisans and art lovers whose ultimate goal is to showcase new and exciting talent in the fields of visual arts, music and performance.

And…they are always looking for local talent….

First Thursdays is currently managed by Cleo Barnett who was inspired by her vision to bring this Seattle based event to K Road.
