Art Selected for Affordable Art Show

I was amazed to learn that I had had three pieces of my art selected for the NZ Affordable Art Show beginning with a gala evening on 30th July and ending Sunday 2nd August. The show is at the TSB arena in Wellington. Work was selected from websites, DVD or by personal delivery.

I won't be going to the show but will be waiting with interest to see whether any of my work sells. There are are likely to be more than 2000 pieces up for sale so competition will be stiff. Whether I sell anything or not, it's so exciting to be among those artists selected for this show.

'Hunters, Rogues & Heroes' by Connor McKenzie

It's ages since I posted anything! Don't know where the last few months went to. Red's (Connor McKenzie) latest book has just been released by Penguin and he's busy being interviewed for both print and radio media. I know I'm biased but I think 'Hunters, Rogues and Heroes' is a great book. It's a collection of stories that has been published in NZ Outdoor over the past few years. I wonder how many people pick up that, although Red's stories are printed in an outdoor book and targeted at hunters, his stories are really about people, not hunting. He's acknowledged as NZ Outdoor's favourite author.
