We are delighted to report that from the small offering of five
works in the recent New Collectors' art auction, over $23 000 was
raised on behalf of The Hone Tuwhare Charitable Trust. The
money will go towards the Trust's goals of building a writers'
residency at Hone Tuwhare's old property at Kaka Point in the
Catlins. ART+OBJECT and the Trust would also like to make
special mention of the artists who so generously supported the
Trust: John Pule, Stanley Palmer, Tracey Tawhiao, Ans Westra,
and Wayne Youle. Hone was always quick to share his talent
with artists from all walks of life and he surely would have been
humbled by these generous gifts.
Should you wish to support the trust in their goal of restoring
the crib and creating an artist's residency, please visit the
'support us' page to find out how: honetuwhare.org.nz/support-us.
