It’s always nice when you find something exciting and can share it with others that can appreciate it. This was the definition of Friday night, on May 9th at The Westminster Hub in New Zealand’s High commission, Haymarket.

      

‘Strong’, was the most common adjective used to describe the works on display in our ‘From Figurative to Abstract, a journey’ exhibition, where we showed off the figurative paintings of artists Jez Prior, Constantine Anjulatos and Larry Poulton along side abstract pieces by the same.

      

There was a very good vibe and guest enthusiasm was very gratifying after all the organisation. We especially appreciate the feedback people have taken the time to give, the moral support and interest.

      

An introduction from Philippa Frankl, Executive Director of the charity ‘Street Kids International’, about the work that they do, giving young people in the developing world the skills and confidence they need to start and run their own business, went down well.

The blackjack tournament we ran raised £115.00, $6.00, E10.00 and 200 Costa Rican Colones. A new record. All proceeds went to ‘Street Kids International’.

A big thank you to Monica, Ivana, Robo and Naira, Ellie and for hosting and running the bar. The evening wouldn’t have been such a success without you.
