we spent Saturday at the Arts Centre, wandering amongst all the colourful stalls, eating some fantastic food and listening to the local flavour music, then wandered over to the Art Gallery
Sculptor, Ron Mucek had the most wonderful exhibition on, absolutely fabulous!!! It is a must see, this man is such a very clever sculptor, if you ever get the chance to see an exhibition like this you definitley need to see it! It runs at the Christchurch Art Gallery until Jan 2011.
He makes a clay model first (from a real life model), and then makes a silicone/fibreglass mold, they just look so jolly real, it is amazing!! ...altho' most of them are slightly larger then life...
this man sleeping, whilst is really quite large, is very life like indeed, the stubble on his face is quite the real thing,
and this is a giant of a sculpture of his wife lying in bed,
and these 2 old ladies are rather cute..
to end the weekend,we ahd a wonderful breakfast on Sunday with Deb and Darlene and hubbys and friends, it was great!!! Thanks heaps Miss D for organising this
... and the last 2 days we have been in Dunedin, catching up with family and doing all the town chores
I hope you are all having a great week,
