The Paraparaumu Rotary Tenth Annual Art Show and Competition runs from Friday 19th October to Monday 22 October at Southward Car Museum, Otaihanga Rd, Paraparaumu. The three paintings entered are "Abstract Eye"," Tararua Sunrise No. 3" and "Three Poplars".
The Mana Art Society annual exhibition and sale runs from 20 to 22 October at the Mana Art Society rooms at Plimmerton Domain, Porirua. The three paintings on show are "Low Tide, Pauatahanui Inlet", "Tararua Sunrise No. 4" and "Hazy Day, Parapara Range".
I have not entered either of these exhibitions previously. I imagine the standard is quite high at the Rotary Art Show. I suspect the Mana show will be the usual mixed bag.
