Fantasy and Abstraction – Craig Humberstone, Felicity Swan and Madelaine Abey-Koch 12th– 24th, March 2018. Opening event Sat 17th March 1-3pm.
The stimulation of the North Shore beaches of the mid 50’s to the 70’s, their natural detritus, wave motions and cavorting figures left lasting memories on these three artists. Some of these themes are found in their work. Craig Humberstone, Felicity Swan and Madelaine Abey-Koch are joining forces to exhibit their work under the title “Fantasy and Abstraction “ Each has developed their subjects from either mind or reality; the results give rise to fantastical images expressed in painting and ceramic sculpture.

The Kumeu Arts Centre Expansion Fundraising Art Auction 7th – 21st of April. Many will know of our plans to expand and improve our facilities. While the Rodney Local Board are currently reviewing the project, we anticipate that expansion will enable us to more of our services, including exhibitions, classes, workshops and performances, in a better, more functional building. Kumeu Arts Centre will be able to increase its capacity and offer a more diverse range of options to our community. However, we are currently a long way from having the money to make this dream become a reality. Therefore, we are running this Art Auction to help fundraise. By purchasing artworks from this auction people can help our cause while acquiring quality Art works by prominent and local artists such as; James F Ormsby, Gavin Chai, Amber Emm, Trevor Parker, and Judy Stokes. Many of the artists who have generously donated works to this auction have been involved with Kumeu Arts Centre in some way, some for a long time, either through teaching, exhibiting or volunteering here. You can come to Kumeu Arts Centre to view the works in our gallery during the Art Auction Exhibition. April 9th - 21st 2018 during which time visitors will also be able to place bids on the works displayed. Alternatively, you will be able to view and bid on a selection of the artworks available at: https://www.32auctions.com/KACIexpansion Image below -Amber Emm.
