Open for Viewing - Re:Fraction 2012 - 11th Oct 2012

Curated by Tim Walker, twentyone glass artists from around New Zealand took up the challenge to exhibit glass sculpture outdoors at Re:Fraction 2012.  The magnificent setting of the rock garden within The Sculpture Park @ Waitakaruru Arboretum is the perfect place to show off the colourful, vibrant and varied glass works.

Judged by Carole Shepeard, Karin Barr was the deserved recipient of the Vazey Child Award for Excellence in Glass Sculpture with her work Treasure Stones.  Hear her approach to this work when she gives an artist talk this Sunday at 11am.

Congratulations also to Jo Conroy of Wanganui for winning the emerging artist award for her piece Colour My World.

Other artists  with glass on show include Colleen Ryan-Priest, Sofia Athineou, Graeme Hitchcock, Isla Osborne, Ron Reichs and Di Tocker.
