Herewith find NOTICE to our next Business Meeting on Tuesday 23 June 2020 as a result from last week announcement by the Government, that gatherings can now be held with up to 100 people on Covid-19 Alert Level 2.  The new limit applies to gatherings at our homes, events outside of home and public venues – including church services, weddings and, funerals and tangihanga. 

We shall all play it safe when holding our events as shared responsibility with our Events Hosts to maintain hygiene standards and meet the hosts record-keeping requirements for contact tracing.

The Cabinet will again review the settings of Alert Level 2 on 8 June and have agreed that no later than 22 June, they will consider a move to Alert Level 1.

Don McAra – New Zealand Artist

– Oil Paintings
– Watercolour Paintings
– Mixed Media and other forms of art work

Don1

“I will be teaching how to apply washes, how tone plus colour gives “value”;, colour mixing, how to work for colour harmony, etc. Good drawing is the underpinning of representational and romantic- realist painting, so I shall teach linear and atmospheric perspective, drawing both with pencil and with brush. I will introduce the class to wet on dry overlaying, but also to wet in wet style, to suit the subject matter. We will start with simple subject matter and move towards more complex. Working from still life subjects is invaluable as all the above can come together Iin such work. I also hope that when we are ready we can try portrait painting in water colour. I intend to gear the rate of our lessons to the needs of the participants. Later I shall encourage you to bring individually chosen photos, but to begin with we can all work from the same photo to ensure we can master the basics together. I hope the class will feel free to ask questions at all times. ”

I’ve decided to do this because I was well taught the basics when I was much younger, and think it is time for me to pass what I have learned on. Also it is a good opportunity to raise funds for a charity I am involved with. This involves working on a heritage tram project at Ferrymead to which I have been contributing for some time. I look forward to share my painting experience with you all, Regards Don.

WOMENS SUFFRAGE CELEBRATION

Hackthorne Garden

 INTERNATIONAL NZ WOMEN CELEBRATION

Celebrating Kate Shephard ~ The New Zealand Election Day 1893 – 2020

A Christchurch woman, Kate Shepard, led the suffragettes attributed for gaining New Zealand women the right to vote in September 1893. New Zealand became the first country allowing all women to vote. She and her group are depicted on a memorial on the riverbank close to the Worcester Boulevard Bridge. The memorial shows the rolled up petition to parliament. It was so large a wheelbarrow was needed to carry it. Prime Minister, Richard Seddon, is credited with the vote for women albeit he, personally, opposed the Electoral Reform Bill. It subsequently passed with a slim majority when two liberal backbenchers voted with the opposition to embarrass their own government and particularly the Prime Minister.  More than 70 per cent of women in New Zealand exercised their right to vote in November, 1893.
