Each year Murray & Co in Christchurch puts on an annual exhibition of emerging artists from the University of Canterbury’s School of Fine Arts.
This year the exhibition is being held at The Piano, the beautiful new centre for music and the arts in the centre of town. A private opening function will be held on the evening of 13 June, and then the public is welcome to view the works every lunchtime (12 noon-2pm) from 14 to 28 June at no charge.
All works are for sale, with the proceeds going directly to the artists. This is a great opportunity to view some stunning pieces while exploring hidden parts of this architectural gem, The Piano.
The aim of the network is to improve coordination between UC’s many eco clubs and events, and ultimately increase the number of people taking part in eco activities. They are also hoping to organise a big eco-event later on in the year (September) – watch this space.
The formation of the network originated from a meeting between George, UCSAs Johnny Duncan and Katie Nimmo (Sustainability Office) in January this year, with the idea to get more collaboration between eco clubs happening. The first ECN meeting was a success, with close to 20 people attending and UCSA president James Addington stepping in as well. Exciting and important sustainability ideas and concerns were shared (like garden rooftops, reducing foodwaste and plastic pollution, UC building materials, Avon river conservation).
